Some setup help please? :D

Hi. I have snowboarded for about 5 years now and I am looking for a 155-160 cm freestyle or park board. Preferably freestyle. I am 5'10" and weigh 130 lbs and I snowboard in Northern Michigan where we have an abundance of snow. I am right now JUST looking at boards but any advice on binding would be appreciated too. Also, I have a friend who is about 5'7" and 130lbs. who has only 1 year of experience who is looking for a nice setup. We both would like to keep our boards under $500 and anything around the $300 mark would be nice. Also, we are both 18 and are not really putting on weight or growing too much anymore. My friend has no preference for brands but I have had good experiences with Forum, M3, Jeenyus, and K2. Any suggestions?? Thanks for your time...

Are you looking to just keep the deck under 500? Also why are you looking at such a big board you don't need a 160. I'm riding a 155 Rome Agent and it rides great for me I'm 5'11" and 190ish so I don't know what you need such a long board for, particularly if you are looking into a park/jib kind of board.

Ok, so I guess maybe I am looking for more of a 155 range board. And what I meant by $500 was for hopefully my deck and bindings to be that much so a deck around 300 would be nice.
