Perfect plan! Yeah I didn't mean to sound harsh but so many people focus on the board and end up with cheap bindings, only to replace both parts a year later. If you get some good mid-price bindings (Burton Scribes are a nice binding that should last), and go for a cheaper board, you'll be excited to be able to get a great second board when you know more about yourself, and the bindings can go with you...

Welcome to the sport!
