First time buyer, probably going to get this board...

Burton Men's Bullet Snowboard 10 @ Sun and Ski Sports

Im about 200 lbs, size 14 boot, and I am 5'11. I am also a beginner.

I am looking atthe 160cm long 260mm wide model.

Is this a good board for me?

wow, big boot.

Yeah, the 160w would be good for you, but you may be jumping the gun with all the sales starting at the end of this month. You should be able to find a 160w for much less, if you can wait.

Well, right now I am renting like every weekend and I think it would be less expensive if I actually bought a good board instead of paying like 50 dollars a week.

To wait and save is up to you. I will say this, 2 of my brothers that ride both got bullets and really like them. I rode my brothers 165? wide and it was a nice ride. Didn't like it as much as my k2 but that might just be cause I'm used to my deck
