Default Again, Help chosing a board

First purchase of a board, not looking to get a new board right now just something used until Im sure I want to get serious. Boards I have been renting have been 155 and I wear an 11.5 boot. Here are some I am looking at and hopefully someone can tell me if these are any good.

Ride Impact 158
Burton Bullet 154
Burton 55 twin 155
Original Sin 159

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

well first, i'd say you have a pretty wide range of board sizes there. do you know what kind of riding you'd want to be doing specifically? that might help people here decide on what size is right for you and then we can work from there.

Burton bullet is a good beginners board, but what is your height and weight?

Don't know too much about the ride or original sin, but if you have your choice between the bullet or the twin, the bullet will fit your boot size much, much better. The bullet is the wide version of the burton clash. The bullet is very soft, or so I'm told, so you may want to go longer than 154 judging by your height and weight.
