you'll be glad you spent the extra cash to get a setup that you wont grow out of so fast. I dont know about those bindings from first hand experience but everyone says they are crap. They'll work for you for a while though I doubt you'll lose money on them.

Once you can actually ride and you get comfortable just cruising you'll want to start pushing yourself. Then it'll be time to upgrade, if you really want to, but untill then you are set brotha.

Also, when you upgrade your board, sintered bases are nice. (-:

I'd ride them till you've outgrown them (skill wise) or they fall apart. You've already jumped in, you might as well swim while you can.
