Default 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?

Would 160 in length be good? 161 -163?
258 in width?

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.
