It would be helpful to know your stats(Height/weight) to make sure those are appropriate choices. That being said I would suggest the K2, it is more of an all around board. The Nitro is more of a park board bc of its flex/response meaning once you are able to get up to speed it wont be nearly as stable especially in bumpy conditions.

The thing you have to worry about is boot overhang(when your toe is sticking off the edge of the board and catches the snow when you turn...this can cause you to bail and eat snow, not fun). The bindings will fit as most snowboards (except burton) have the same mounting patterns. It mostly comes down to personal preference on binding style. I would suggest something mid responsive for a new rider.
