Yeah I agree, you want a nice mid flex all mountain 158cm, this will give you a good level of stability and manageability. In terms of boots, just try a few pairs on, you want them to be comfortable as rental boots will have done all the packing out they are going to do.

Other than that don't over think it, just work on getting a solid technique down.

As an aside I see a lot of people learning to ride on a reverse camber, it does mean you catch less edges and take less tumbles but I think you learn better technique starting out on a traditional camber, just my opinion though....
