New rider looking for board advice

Ive been skiing for about 7 yrs and finally decided to take up snowboarding cause it looks way more fun... But im torn between which board to buy... Im currently looking at the Burton Se7en and the Burton Elite but i dont know which will be better for me or if i should be looking at those at all...

Any advice all would help me out...

well what boards can he get though the outfitter? and i would recommend getting a board in the 157-160 range if you can..i'm the same hieght and i ride a 157...gives me lots of control for jibbin but also if i just want to carve down the hill it's not to short...and btw...both of mine are just bairly under my chin
