Default Nitro or Rossignol?

Hey, this is my first season boarding so I'm pretty much a beginner. I've been renting but want to buy one now and try to stay under $250. What would you suggest,
the (Nitro Prime Taped Wide)
or the (Rossignol Circuit Midwide).
Any other suggestions are welcomed, like everyone I'd like to get the most bang for buck. BTW I'm 6'3", 190lbs, sz13.

Well, the Forum Recon used to be a fantastic beginners board but I don't think they make them anymore, if the new Forum Image is anything like the old Recon then you may want to consider it.

Nice, what about an intermediate board? I'd like to get something I can ride for a little while.

Just downhill for now, no park or anything. I can cut back and forth switching toe and heel side pretty good and feel confidant on some black slopes.

Do you think the clash will fit me alright? I use large bindings with sz13 boots.

I have a Rossi circuit, regular not MW. I bought the 09 Circuit this season and learned how to do all the basics: carve, go down blacks, ollie, butter, 180, ride rails and boxes. I think it's a great beginner camber board, but I'm definitely outgrowing it. You might want to buy something more intermediate if you plan on going to the mtns a lot.

umm depends what size you get, the 158 has a 252mm waist width and the 160 has a 254mm waist. i have an 11.5 boot and my board is 251mm and have no problems. i have a friend with a size 13 riding a board thats 250mm and he says its perfect. you are tall so you probably have a wide stance which will help it fit better. you might have some toe drag in deep/loose/heavy spring time slush but other than that i think you're good. especially if you're boots have broad stubby toes.
