Okay so next rule: it's not written in stone but generally you want to match flex/response ratings. The board and boots you picked are both soft flexing (about a #3 on burtons scale) but the bindings are a 7 flex rating (much stiffer).
I like the Cartel bindings for your riding style, but I would probably pair them with a Honcho
in the same price range, or the Sherlock
. Although those prices seem high, can probably find them cheaper somewhere else.
For the boots, again they're softer so you probably want something stiffer. The Burton Ambush
has a feel rating of 5 which is closer to the other parts of the system.
For that matter you could scale back on the bindings a bit and bring them down to a level 5 to match the rest of the setup.
Hope this helps!
