Wide board for noob recommendations

Looking for a wide board for pretty new rider. Looking for something that is easy to handle but can grow into.

Looking for make/models and size.

Stats: 6'4", 215, size 12

Thanks,
John

Bullet in around a 159, and they're cheap atm.

157 is as big as they have them... is that too small? I'm in the midwest (Ohio) and the place I usually go they "make" their snow so it is pretty icy.

What about the Forum Raider or Rome Flag or Rome Slash?

eh you can get by on a 157, depends on what you're doing though. If you want to mainly freeride I'd try to go 159 or higher, but if you think you're going to do even a little bit of freestyle stuff a 157 should be okay.

Not really when you're 6'4", i'm 6'3" 250 lbs, and I think even if I rode park/pipe it'd be on a 165 at least... but ya, for most average sized normal people, it is kinda big-ish.

from what i've heard it's mostly weight dependent but IDK Am 194 and I use a 155.

Actually I have a 168 right now but it's hard learning on that big thing... I got it from a friend. Wanted something a bit smaller.

What do you feel about the Forum Raider or Gnu CHB MTX? 161 or 163
