tall & skinny

I'm new to snowboarding. Only been a few times. Looking to buy a board. But I need some tips, especially on board length. I'm 6'6" and weigh 180 lbs. What board length do you suggest? Also my shoe size is 13. So from what I've heard, I need a wider board? How do I know if it's wide enough for a 13 size boot? Any other tips or suggestions appreciated.

wide board, 159-164 based on your weight, dont sweat your height for this, wanna ride park? get a twin, wanna ride all mountain? get a directional

depends on your price limits of course

i ride a never summer revolver (mid-wide, its a difference of millimeters), size 13 boot, 185lbs

buying boots and bindings as well? i would get a matching type set from the same company, so u dont have misfitting issues
