Default Help a beginner pick his board

I'm 6'3 180 with a size 12 boot and have never been riding before at all. I'm looking for a decent, versatile beginners board. My options are as follows:

K2 Darkstar wide 160
Rome Artifact Rocker 156
Flow Infinite Rocker 159
Burton Aftermath Squeezebox 158
Rome Graft 158
Ride Antic Rocker 157

All of these options are a bit overwhelming to a beginner like me. I just want the board I'm gonna have the most fun on

May I suggest trying it out before you drop a grand on equipment?
And yes, that's roughly what it will cost you if you want half decent gear. You need a board, bindings, boots, pants, jacket, some extra layers, gloves and goggles.

Unless you're rich, in which case you should totally get that one:
