Rent. You probably havn't hit your growth spurt yet, so to buy equipment at this point in time is a bit of a waste of money. Not only that, but judging by the way you worded your post, it sounds like you havn't even stepped foot on a snowboard yet anyhow.

Dude your probably gunna spurt up about 2 feet and 5 shoe sizes in the next couple years you might just wanna rent. But I guess it also depends on how much you get to the mountain. Look and the cost difference between how many time your gunna go and have to rent versus the cost of replacing your gear each year.

If you're buying something cheap because you don't want to chuck out $20 each time for rentals, you're not going to get a good board. Anything by Lamar will work fine for 1 season maybe 2, but it will start to degrade in quality very quickly. Unless you're spending about $400 - 500 on a board (brand new), you're not getting great stuff. But, if you're going to hit the slopes a lot and you want a board for about 200 bucks, just go with a Lamar board or something around that price range. Boarding while you're still growing sucks since you outgrow everything so fast. It's not a good choice either way, but what can you do?

Dude no one called you ignorant. Don't think that people think that you are. All you are is uninformed. If you are well aware that you gunna outgrow that stuff then go for it and yea like Flick said Lamar stuff is pretty much junk and will wear out fast. So anyways welcome to the board and have fun shreddin it up.

Ask your hill/resort if they have seasonal rentals.

Nobody's calling you ignorant, just suggesting alternative choices because of your circumstances. Doing a seasonal rental at your resort will allow you to try different boards/bindings and help you decide ultimately what you like in the end.
