Arbor Blacklist vs. Westmark (all mountain board)

I am looking at either the Arbor Westmark and Blacklist. I originally wanted the blacklist but have a size 9.5 foot so don't know if it will feel too "wide". I am 180lbs and will be riding all mountain with some park. Any suggestions?

Definitely go for the Westmark. Don't know the specific width measurements of that particular board, but most regular boards will accommodate up to size 11-ish boots before you even have to consider going for a wide board.

Do you guys think the Westmark is "too advanced" for a beginner rider?

Don't see why it would be. It's a medium soft park board with reverse camber. It's not going to hamper your ability to learn anymore than anything else and will probably be easier than most.
