which board for a beginner?

i'm a beginner looking to get a new board. rented a few time and i like my progress & want to go back for more so i figure the money put into renting now would be better off into owning a set.

5'7 190lbs wearing a size 11 snowshoe.

these are the boards i've looked into .. i'm leaning more towards the gnu .. good/bad choice?
1. gnu carbon credit series btx 156
2. rossignol one mag 156
3. ride antic 157
4. nitro team wide black 157

Capita Ultrafear is the way to go. Proper reverse camber which makes it easier for noobs because the contact points are raised. And it's fairly soft which will help initiate turns. And the FK tech is super playful with just the right grip.

Only get a GNU with magnetraction if your on the east coast.... And IMO it makes it harder to learn on because of all the grip. I personall believer mtx was created to gve back the traction lost when they made a shitt reverse camber that lost to much traction.
