Default Choice between two boards

I'm new to snowboarding, but I surf and wakeboard. I just moved to Vail for the winter and bought a season pass so I'll will be riding a lot. I'm looking to buy a snowboard. I found two used ones that I can get in the $300-$350 range. The first is a 2007 custom X 160 with C02 bindings. The second is a 2009 Ride Antic with Ride Delta Bindings. I'm looking for a good solid all around board, one that's somewhat forgiving since I'm a beginner but that I can grow into. Also, I won't be using it much in the park. I'm 6'0 175 pounds and size 10.5 shoe.

Thanks,

Nate

honestly the custom x would be great and even better if it was a normal custom cause the reg is not as aggressive. the co2s are nice binding but again very aggressive. the ride setup would probably be the best for you cause its the newest and the overall setup is a bit more beginner friendly. i think the antic is a softer board and would be easier to turn and be more forgiving but it will have all mountain flair. ive never been a fan of ride binding cause i dont like metal base plates but ive never ridden them and plenty of ppl on here love em. my vote is for the ride setup.
