Default TRS o what else?

Hey guys, first I want to introduce, my name is Max and I'm from Argentina.
Two years ago I practice this beautiful sport in Patagonia and is completely fascinated!
In early April I have the opportunity to travel to Miami and I have thought of buying the entire team (board + bindings and boots). What I like best is a bit of piste, off-piste and runs through the trees ...
My height is 6'10', weight 170 lbs and 12 U.S..
The binding will be the Burton Cartel and Burton Ruler boots.
Of all the boards I saw and the review I found on the net, my options are:
1 - Never Summer Legacy
2 - Lib Tech TRS (does not come in wide)
3 - Mag One Teck Rossi (it is difficult to obtain)
I would like to buy the Lib Tech but since it is wide I have fear that I stay small for my feet, which is why my option 1 is the Legacy, even if you have Vario Magnatraction grip, while not grab as much as is Magnatraction also very good.
I wanted to check to see what you think of this selection and if there are other options that you can recommend.
Thank you very much and greetings to all the band !!!!!

the skunk ape is a wide trs, it is set back a bit but so is the Legacy. Wide boards similar in ride and cost to the TRS; riders choice(twin), lando(1" set back), jamie lynn(0.5").

Do you think that SHUNK APE is too big or stiff for my weight?
The Heritage X is too stiff for me...and my level of ability

A boot size of 11.5, will fit well in the TRS??

Sorry for my english and the stupid questions.
Thanks!!!

Sorry I didn't read the first two lines. The skunk ape is honestly not that much stiffer than the TRS. But at 253mm, if you had some shrinkage boots it's possible. But I wouldn't recommend it..I wear an 11 and had some overhang.

I would go for the Protoctx, sounds perfect for you.

Thanks for the super fast answer!!!!!
Now im in doubt betwen de PROTO and the LEGACY...
It seem that the PROTO is more park focus and i will never hit the park...

I don't rule out the ROSSI ONE MAGTEK....how do you see it???

Yes the proto is more freestyle, but it's a great all mountain freestyle deck. Especially since you don't ride a lot and are more at the beginner end of the scale - i think you will have A LOT more fun on it. It will most likely last longer too with the bulletproof carbon topsheet. The legacy will do, but it may be a tad too much board for you to learn on....
