Fair enough, and good for you. Still the advice stands that the board and bindings are among the least important aspects of your set-up.
Your instructor friend should be able to advice you, but generally speaking look for a soft to mid flex board, twin or slightly directional, and probably around 155 or so in length (could be shorter if you are dead-set on park riding). Even as you progress, that will make a serviceable park deck.
For bindings, get whatever fits your boots (which you should buy first and from a qualified shop, ideally one with a boot fitter) and feels comfortable.

Then go practice and shred the mountain/park!
