I'm a big guy and need a board thread

So after showing my some of my friends my video from Sugar mountain NC we are planning a trip end of Feb. Looking to buy a board. I am 6'5 240lbs with a shoe size of 15. I am an intermediate level snowboarder and the last board I used was a Burton cruzer wide 159 cm. I'm looking at a couple boards right now such as the ride fleetwood 165 cm, k2 fat bob 165 cm, and freesport evolution 158 cm, are any of these good boards for me and do you have any recommendations. I'm trying to keep it under 150 and prefer used thanks for the help

Are you able to find any of those boards you mentioned for under $150? What kind of riding do you plan on doing?

Jest pick one that fits and buy it. 165W is a good size for you.
