So I really am a beginner.. I can get off the slope, I can do an s turn, break, make some hops allong my way and switch the board while riding and I'm pretty much in control of the board.

My dimensions:
5ft10 without boots
165 pounds without gear/clothing
Boot size 11.5

I'm looking at buying the following setup:
Bataleon whatever 159 width 254 at waist.
Burton cartel restricted L
Burton Ruler 11.5 with shrinkage

My main questions are:
What do you think about this setup for a beginner and for the next couple of years?
Is this board to soft for me?
Is this boards width ok for my footsize or wil I get drag?

Thanks in advance!
Maybe Customs or Missions, cartels are a bit stiff, unless you know you want a stiff binding specifically.
