Cool Good freeride or freestyle setup?

Hallo everyone,
I'm a someone new snowboarder with just a year under my belt, and I'm looking into getting a new setup. I plan on getting some boots at a local board shop, but I don't know what board to get as I'm not up on snowboarding equipment so I don't know whats good. Basically my riding style will just be carving down the mountain, maybe occasional little jumps along with way but no park. I'm thinking a directional board will be best since I won't be riding switch a whole lot either. I'm 5'11 and 180 lbs.

Suggestions please!

Thanks for the tips, any price range on those? I'm looking to spend ~500 on a board and I'll spend over 100$ if needed on boots. My understanding of bindings is they aren't as important as the other parts, so how much will bindings really effect my ride?

when i first got into the sport I had very little money to spend. I got a cheep board, cheep bindings, and great boots. After a couple seasons, the next thing I upgraded was the bindings. The last thing I upgraded was the board. my point is, I wouldnt buy a $500 board and cheep bindings, its just a waist of a good board.

i will not be the only one to tell you this on the forum but you do not want to get some cheap bindings.

i mean they can cost less, but you deff want to quality bindings.

The capita black death is around 460$ somthing

The Custom is 560$

I'm not sure bout the Bataleon, but i think that it is prob like 500+ range.

spend a bit more cash on boots. you never want to have boots that are not comfortable. it will ruin you day
