Default New board

I'm new to snowboarding, only been out a few times but I was planning on getting a board for this season. I'm 6'11 190 lbs, 11-11.5 boots and no set style chosen. So I'm look at two boards that I think fit what I need but as being ignorant in this field I thought I should ask the opinions of people who know what they are talking about.

Rossignol Scope Snowboard 159 Men's | eBay

Morrow Radium Wide Mens Snowboard 159 | eBay

any information is much appreciated.

cant comment on your boards up there but what i can say is that if you are new you prolly want

1) soft flex board to make turning easier
2) size 11 shoes depending on the board u might need a wide board

the scope has a flex of 7 so prolly too stiff for you as a beginner

there may be other boards for you to look at.... other than those 2

Mid wide?

At this point, with those two options, buy the one you like the graphic the best.

200 shipped for the Morrow, you are almost halfway there for a Never Summer dude, do it!! Keep saving and buy a Never Summer, serious

I chose those two after looking for awhile for their width and lower price. Bills are pretty heavy right now so I'm avoiding spending as much as I can but I would hate to go the season without boarding at all.Both boards listed are 26.6cm which I believe makes them wide which is what I think I need for boots that are 11-11.5. As for this scope of flex, is that higher = stiffer or higher = more flex?
