Question Amount of flex needed in bindings?

I'm working on getting together my first setup, and I'm trying to figure out what binding I should get. I've ridden a couple times a year for several years but have always used rentals. I'm decent - able to go down all the runs and do some smaller jumps and smaller rails, but nothing extraordinary. I've already bought a 159 cm Ride Yukon Wide board and Burton Moto boots. I'm 6' 0" and weigh 170 lbs. What level of flex in bindings would work well with what I already have? I'll mostly be riding groomed runs with occasional park visits, and I'll hopefully be able to take a trip out west this year. I wasn't thinking about matching the boots and board together when I bought them; they were good deals and I just liked them individually and didn't think about compatibility. So, I have a fairly stiff board with some soft boots - what binding will balance this out?

TLDR: I have a stiff board with soft boots, what level of flex should I look for in bindings.
