Need advice which board/boots/bindings to buy

I'm a beginner snowboarder, only been a few times. But, I love it and want to become a serious boarder. The only times I have been I never could rent equipment that fit me, it was always a inch or 2 too small. My boots were extremely tight and hung over my board about 2 inches.

I wear a size 15 (US) shoe, I can fit into some 14s. Also, I'm about 6'2'' and weight around 210-215.

What size board should I get? I've been looking at the Burton Bullet 164 with a waste of 26.2 cm. But, I'm not sure if that waist is large enough for me. I've read some recommendations for people with size 12 shoes to get a board with a 26 cm waist.

The stores I've been to where I'm living don't have any boots that are in my size, so I haven't been able to try any on and am going to have to order them. So if anyone has any boot recommendations I'd appreciate it. Or any recommendations for boards and bindings as well.

Thanks in advance.

Edit: Forgot to fill in some stuff:
Riding style: Freeriding
Age: 24
budget: hoping to spend less than 500, but can go up to 700
Your location of riding: Colorado, Wyoming, and California
