Question First time board / binding purchase... please help...

Hey all... this is my first post, but I've been reading a lot of the stickies and threads in this forum... I've been snowboarding for the past couple years and think I want to take the plunge and buy myself an introductory snowboard and bindings... I spent some time talking with a representative at Sierrasnowboard and here's what we came up with for me...

157 Burton Twin 2009
Burton Mission Bindings

I'm 5'7.5" and weigh 170lbs. I don't plan on doing any park runs -- I'm just going to be going up and down the greens/blues... but I would like to work on simple tricks (180's, 360's, small trail-side jumps, etc) and work on moguls as well, so I need a board that can turn relatively easily and quickly.

So does the board and binding combo look like a good match for me? Thanks!
