I was looking at the Burton Custom Flying V snowboard, is this a good choice for me or should I look at a different one?
It really doesn't matter too much at the beginner stages. It would be a good idea IMHO for you to buy a cheap used board of ANY RANDOM KIND as long as its got a basically normal shape to it in the right size. Then after a season of linking turns on it you will have 2 very important conclusions to move forward with:
1. maybe you will quickly be reminded why you quit in the first place, and be happy that you didn't go buy that $1300 adamantium prototype board.
2. you will have some basis for choosing a good board for yourself, and very likely have alot more knowledge on current gear in general.
