you will be fine with ether, the shorter one will be a little easier to maneuver while your first learning, the longer will provide more stability once you progress and start to ride faster.

Where do you ride? if it is on groomed snow the majority of time then i would get the 159w, if you are in an area that receives lots of new snow and you have to deal with bumps and chunks then i would get the 163w.

k2 make nice bindings they should be fine, boots are all preference, spend some money and get a nice model.
