Big-footed freestyle madmen, look no further.
The Burton Super Hero wide snowboard was designed specifically for big-footed shredders who seek out every jib and side hit on the mountain, and then destroy them. It features Nug Raduction technology to allow you to downsize 4-5cm from your regular board, without sacrificing stability or control. The Flat Top profile gives you the pop and control of camber, with the catch free ride. It gets even better with a Scoop tip and tail, which lifts the edges for unreal buttering and deep snow float.
The Super Hero runs a twin shape, so it rides switch exactly like it does regular. The Flat Top profile blends the best of rocker and camber by providing stability and pop, plus the catch-free ride you've come to expect from rockered boards. Side Effects give you the absolute maximum effective edge, which cranks up the edge hold. And it gets even better with Frostbite edges, which bump out under the binding for tenacious grip on ice and hardpack.
The Super Hero's Nug Raduction tech package enables you to run a board that's 4-5cm smaller than you'd typically ride, without sacrificing performance. The lightweight Super Fly core is profiled for a controlled flex, even in choppy snow. Squeezebox takes this concept a step further, thinning the core under the bindings for an even flex along the entire length of the board. That gets a boost from The Channel mounting system, which works in conjunction with EST bindings to give you unrestricted flex and incomparable board feel. Pro Tip keeps the Super Hero spinning fast, and Infinite Ride ensures that it feels broken in right out of the box, and stays that way.

I'm 6'2" and about 170Lbs - I'm an experienced free rider and looking for a playful board for non powder days and ride around the mountain with the family . I have shoe size 13 and looking at this Super Hero Wide . Should I get 154 or 158 ?
I would suggest the 158 given your height and foot size since it has a slightly larger waist width compared to the 154. Which you need if you want to avoid toe drag while turning. If you are going to ride park only with this board the 154 would work.
I had this board in 151 wide. They don't call it wide for nothing. I am 6'2 and weigh about the ams as you with a 12 foot size. The board is meant to be rode shorter obviously Brett missed the boat on that one.
Would this be good board for a beginner?

in my opinion the profile of this board is great for beginners. Flat top is less aggressive than a true camber but more stable than a rocker board. For that reason Burton uses flat top in their Learn To Ride boards as well as some freestyle (like this one). I would only recommend the wide version if your boot size is an 11 or larger, otherwise it wont respond well when trying to turn and can really be a bummer for someone just starting out.
Boot size 10.5 or smaller = normal width
Boot size 11 or larger = wide

Actually an amazingly fun deck to ride all over the mountain. I love how quick it is edge to edge. I took it down some tight steep couloirs today on some wind-buffed pow. The short/fat design, spooned out tip and tail and super mellow flex create a very skate-esque feel in fresh snow. Even dropped some 10-20 foot airs on it and found it super forgiving on landings. Rides switch like a true twin should.
I'm 6'3" 225 lbs and I went for the 158W. I have 13 boots and get very little toe drag at all with this board. I think that helps the float in deep snow as well. I love how the channel lets me get my stance out super wide. I also have a 169W Custom for charging the steep and deep.
I've been riding in mostly epic powder conditions; so I haven't taken it in the park much yet. I'm sure the flat/no-camber design will make pressing sweet.
