Board size help.

I'm looking to get into a snow based sport, not much to do in the winter, snowboarding sounded like fun.

Okay so, here's the deal. I'm a pretty chubby guy.
I'm about 5' 10'' and about 200 pounds. With a shoe size of about 10 1/2 - 11
I've looked at charts, but I don't understand them.

Can anyone help me?

Well any board from 156-160 should be good for you many +4/-4 in either direction but you may want to get a wide board because the size of your foot.

Thanks! I was looking for one in the 165-170 range before, they are hard to find in classifieds.
This helps, a lot.
Um, I'm a noob to this still :P What does the words highlighted in red mean?

You should read the FAQ's, and then post specific questions after you have done so.

Weight ~200
Boot size 11
Riding style (do you like to charge steeps? Spin 7's/9's, ride groomers?)Freeride
Age (are you still growing and puttin on weight?) :16, So I guess I'm still growing
budget (if you have one): Under 300$
Your location of riding: Not exactly sure.
Looked at :
O-matic Boron Snowboard - Free Shipping! from Dogfunk.com
Forum Recon Snowboard - Free Shipping! from Dogfunk.com or Forum Recon Snowboard - Wide - Free Shipping! from Dogfunk.com

Basically, I want to know what's okay for me. Are the snowboards I looked at okay?
Is it too much to spend for a beginner?
Also, I read somewhere that boots should be selected first. Is that true?
