MY first bindings were a pair of K2 Indy. Help up real well for the beating I put on them my first season. Nothing broke. Good med/soft flex. Nothing spectacular about them. Just a good solid binding that will get you through your first season. If you decide to stick with the sport then go for something a little better when you decide what type of rider you'll be (park, freeride...). OR if you know what kind of riding you'll be doing, go for that kind of binding now. Rome 390's, Union Force, Ride MVMT series are all good for park style. Anything with a med/stiff flex will suit the rest of the mountain.
