Default My First Board, Need HELP

Okay so I am just getting back into snowboard (been out of it for like 5 years) and want to do so as cheap as possible without getting some garbage equipment. I plan on starting just going down the slopes to get the feel back and then moving into the park. Right now I am deciding on a board/binding, which of these seems the best deal for me?

Boards:

08 Nitro Team - $160
09 Ride Agenda - $160

Bingdings:

08 Ride EX - $75
09 Ride EX - $100
09 Ride SPi - $110

Thanks in advance.

ok pal, your first post i see, ill take that with a grain of salt. since you seem to be concerned only with money these are not retail prices. team retails for $400 and has won good wood award last year and this year. agenda retails for $300 (same as the recon btw). anyone else have any input.

From what I heard, the 08 Rides have weird ratchets. Personally, I love my 09 Ride RXs. Maybe look at them as well

well it seems like you must have tried out a lot of equipment for only having been 7 times.
