Need To Buy : Snowboard ( And POSSIBLY boots)

Ok, first to comment on the boots. Im a size 13- MAINLY 14 sneaker. When I rent I always fit well in a 14-14.5 boot. If you have anything up for grabs in that size let me know. Ill try to hit up a store to see how they fit and then we'll talk. Also, even if you have site recommendations for them let me know.

Now, I need a board. Im a noobie and I just decided to buy my own gear rather than wasting cash on rentals. Obviously I'll be looking for a freeriding board for now but MAYBE eventually (next season) I might try to hit up some jumps and whatnot. However, the freeriding aspect is my first concern.
Im ~6'4 and weigh about 220. (Used to bodybuild ) So Im figuring anything between 161-165 would do, however, Im leaning towards the lower end of that.
I dont need anything UBER expensive. Just a good board for now. If I dont get anything here I'll probably jump on a Rome Manual since thats about 210 or so.

Let me know. Thanks!

BTW: I just got a pair of L/XL White/Rust Rome 390's

I have a pair of Visions size 13. Snowboard boots are meant to be super snug. I learned this the hard way by spending too much money and wasting my time. I wear a 10.5-11 shoe and I wear a size 9.5 snowboard boot and it has changed everything for the better. I also have a couple of boards but there only 158s. A Morrow that I can let go for $60 and thats shipped. Let me know if your interested, here are some pics. Thanks.
