Help please?

I'm looking into this sport.
I never have anything to do during the winter.
And I really want to try something.

Basically,I don't know where to begin.
I know basics like, boots first then board and stuff like that.
But I don't know where to find the right one.

I want to know where should I begin.
Renting and seeing which ones work well?
Taking my friends old boards?

Here's some information.
Weight 215
Boot size 11
Riding style (do you like to charge steeps? Spin 7's/9's, ride groomers?)Freeride
Age (are you still growing and puttin on weight?) :about 16
budget (if you have one): Under 300$ or as low as possible
Your location of riding: Not exactly sure. I know a few hills.

Used isn't really an option? Are they the most important thing?
Could money be saved on those, and spent in other areas?

i think you could maybe go a bit shorter, but do a search on the forums here. there is probably a few topics about sizes that would be good. and you wouldnt need a wide board.
