Default picking board out

hey guys im a newbie to the sport of snoboarding but have fallen in love with it. im looking into getting my own set up and was hoping i could get some advice on my first board. im 6'2" about 215ish. ive been looking into the k2 darkstar and the ride crush to start out with. one problem im having though is figuring out which size board to go with i know ill need a wide board with my 13 feet. any suggestions or comments would be great im all ears.

158-160 for a park board.

162-165 for an everything else board.

Capita is an amazing snowboard company but not all boards are available in wide. I'm about 190-200 lbs and ride a 155w Horrorscope for my play board and a 162w Black Death for my everything else board.

Union bindings are an amazing do it all binding. I have Union Forces on my Horrorscope and Ride NRc on my Black Death.

yea i agree that capita is magic and both the boards that u mentioned are pretty good although they are both pretty park geared. if thats not the direction you wanna take get something a little bit more freeride, but if it is than yea go for either. the lowrise rocker on the crush is super sick.
