I wouldnt recommend the custom for a beginner, Its not a very forgiving board. If you want a more beginner board that still has ics look at the dominant, its classified as a park board but you can take it pretty much anywhere. Also the ConDom, same thing as the dominant but it has a convex base, aka a little bit harder to catch an edge which all beginners would love. Yeah the Triads are nice, a little too flexy for my taste but I have a lot of friends that ride them. They're not geared towards beginners, however you would probably be fine on them. Keep in mind they're not cheap which is generally why beginners dont ride them. I would also look at the Missions, and if you want to go a little pricier, the Cartels. If your a beginner you really wouldnt notice a whole lot of difference between sets of bindings that are in the triad price range.

A Custom is fine, I got a Custom as my first board with about a week under my belt. It is a good board and scales well as you get better also.

I had Cartels until last week and just changed to Triads because I wanted a bit of extra comfort. You are talking about exactly the same setup I have (Except I run a 158) and I have gone from just barely linking turns when I got it to Black Diamonds with the same setup. The only limitation I have found with this board is deep powder where I sink quite a bit because my board is already a little on the small side for me. Perfect for normal conditions and groomed runs, but I am considering picking up a Malolo for the Annual trip to Niseko.

Also, only get a Burton setup if it is for a good price (Last seasons gear on Snowboard, Snowboards, Burton Snowboards, Burton Bindings, Burton Boots, and snowboard reviews - Free Shipping - US Orders Over $100 is a fucking bargain, I just wits they shipped Burton gear to Australia)
You can usually get better gear from another brand for a better price, but when it's sale time it brings that stuff down to a level that can be quite good value.

O and IMO: Triads are a better beginner binding than Cartels.
