Would be a good start.
bindings uhhh try to find a deal on like flux tt30s or something.
Boots, just try everything on in the store, i'd spend the most on boots/bindings for sure.

No board is going to significantly help you from catching edges, that's more technique and getting your body perpendicular to the hill and using your front edge to initiate the turn.
funny thing is I WAS wearing wrist guards when I broke my wrist and I took lessons when I was younger. I fell so hard I thought I shattered my tail bone...didn't even feel my wrist until I went to take my gloves off and my left wrist was twice the size of my right My tail bone was just fine.

Interesting you say boots/bindings I should spend more on than board. What makes a good binding?

Any opinion on shape of board? directional vs. twin?
