$350 to buy board and bindings

Alright, so I have about $350 give or take a little to buy a board and bindings. I would really prefer like a reverse camber board (skate banana) or a higher quality board. I know the 09 burton customs are like $270 at sierra snowboard. I just didnt know how good the custom was in the park. I was kinda worried about the directional shape of the custom too...Any ideas?

What kind of board do you want? The Custom is an all-mountain board, that's why its slightly directional. If you only ride park buy a park board. Otherwise the Custom is a great all-rounder.

i ride everywhere, but I'd like to try the park more this year. I also want a board that will last me awhile. The problem I have is I want a 151 but sierra only has 148 and 154 in stock...so any rockers in my price range in 151 would be awesome

3cm wont make or break you, a Custom will do fine, it's not a pure park board but it can certainly be taken there. And it's great for all other parts of the mountain as well.

Rockers are the new fad so they will be more expensive. Also over-rated IMO.
Just look for a medium flex all-mountain board. There's heaps on Sierra within your price range.
