Question New Boarder Needs Input

Hi all. I am new to the snowboarding scene; a converted skier. I'm one of those sasquatch guys 6'4" (1.93m) and weigh 235 lbs. (107kg), so I decided to buy most of my equipment for the 1st time out instead of renting. It is very rare that rental shops can fully accomodate the big boys.

Anyway, I am hoping to get some input on my arrangement. I've read through several forums and did all of my ordering online, so I have not had any dialogue on these purchases. This is what I got:

Board: Elan El Grande - 171
Bindings: Burton Cartel - Large
Boots: Burton Moto - Size 15

Is it too much for a beginner, or should I be fine?

Board is big, bindings are fine, boots are soft.
