Those two boards couldn't be further apart and still both be not what you need. The CC is Gnu's intermediate priced, no frills all-mountain board. It's not going to be enough board for you. The Premiere F1 is a big mountain board.
At 270 I probably wouldn't go shorter than that 162, although that's still on the long side for freestyle riding. As for NS, look at the Heritage or Heritage X (if you have big feet, like size 12+). I think that is available in a 162. From Gnu, check out possibly the Rider's Choice although that might be on the soft side given your weight. Or the Dirty Pillow which I think is a mid-wide and also available in 162.
Then again, at your size you may *need* a board designed more for big-mountain riding.
Sabatoa is a bit taller than you but pushing 260 this year, he was riding a NS Legacy, which is the wide version of their popular SL, in a 163 length. Seemed to work out just fine for him. With that in mind I'd lean towards that or the Heritage which will be a little burlier.
