From reading the different articles and guides on the forum (they're great help, THANKS!), it seems I should buy about 145 cm board, right?
140-150 lbs --- 145-155 CM board
What do you think of this used Flow MK-4 bindings (size M), FLOW BINDINGS MK-4 size M - Toronto Sports Goods For Sale - Kijiji Toronto
? The guy wants $75 CAD for them...
I'll probably buy the board and boots new (hard to find used in my size). I've checked out couple of stores, and I found some women's boards Morrow, K2 and Sims at about the same price ($100 CAD) in a store near me.

I saw LAMAR as well: The one I remember seeing is actually junior and they were seling it as women's, so that wouldn't be for me I'm guessing...
SIMS: I was at their website, but don't see the board they had in store.
From their selection of boots it was also Sims, Morrow and Lamar. Do any of these stand out in terms of quality, beginner needs, etc.?
I'm not sure whether I should go ahead and buy (even though I don't have too much $) or keep renting since who knows how many more weekends can I go snowboarding this year and buy next season? I do like snowboarding, but I'm at the stage where I feel like I haven't learned much and am flat on the ground most of the time...
Thanks for your help.
