Question Best 1st setup for 1st time boarder

Hi I'm going to go snowboarding for the 1st time, I want to buy all my own gear. I really have no idea but I went for it anyway using information from forums board reviews etc.

I ended up buying a skate banana 156 ( I'm 510 and 180 pounds) and union factory bindings, I think I will buy boots in Austria because I want to try them on before I buy. Is this a good setup for a 1st time boarder? I surf a lot and skate occasionally so I guess as Fas as snowboarding go's I want to cruise the mountain and do punts and carves and also spend a bit of time in the park!

The reason I'm posting is I'm thinking I might return the board and get a TRS instead. Is this a good idea or should I stick with the skate banana?

Also any suggestion on boots that would suit these board and bindings and the type of snowboarding I think I will be doing.
