This is a good suggestion.

My main suggestions would just be to pick up some good deals on mostly all mountain gear. Because you are a beginner, it's difficult to say what riding style you will prefer. So for your size I would find a good, but inexpensive 158 all mountain freestyle board that will be versatile enough for you to find your niche, and then know more of what you want for your second board.
