as far as i know, everything is pretty much universal

you might wanna check the width of the board though if youre wearing size 11.5 boots

Most boards have universal binding holes... I think burton is the only one that is real picky...

Yeah with that big of a boot you're gonna need a wider board... which isn't as much as a hassle as it used to be.

I would recommend from what I've read the Rome Flag, Atomic Wide Boards, Neversummer, and either the Ride Fleetwood, and Yukon all of these are awesome boards that i've seen used. I personally have a Neversummer Heritage and it has a Wide Version which will be perfect for you... Just a little bit more expensive. I've also got an Anthem which the flag is pretty much just the wider version of that too. Same with the Timeless/Yukon I've got a timeless its a little more toward the freeride, speed that can kill you but I've seen it used in the park before also.

Oh and the Decade Wide which I've never rode, but should be a dependable board.

I can vouch for the Rome Flag as I rode mine for the first time this weekend and it's freaking sick! I can also vouch for the Ride Decade Wide which is what I was on before the Flag... different type of ride, the decade is much more mellow and slower from edge to edge but much more forgiving of input mistakes than the Flag. Has less pop in the flex as the decade is really a free ride oriented board but it can do it all just not as easily. If you're going to be doing mostly groomers and a bit of some off-piste or steeps the decade can handle it and will make a beginners life a bit easier than the flag but the flag will perform better when you can handle it. I have also ridden the Ride Yukon and it's the faster stiffer version of the decade basically. I like the Flag better because it's got a better flex for me than the Yukon has...Yukon is a bit stiffer in the middle so it's harder to pull the nose up to snap off the tail...

It all depends on what you are really looking to do. I like the flag for it's speed and poppiness of the core, The Yukon is super fast and stable when it gets steep and deep, and the Decade is a very mellow intermediate ride that does everything well but nothing great...
