An amazing starter setup would be either a Capita Horrorscope FK or Capita Indoor Survival FK board. The Horrorscope is really soft, playful, and easy to jump on and learn to ride. The Indoor Survival is a little bit stiffer with a bit more dampening which is going to keep it from chattering at higher speeds and take some of the abuse off of your knees, but is also easy to just jump right on and ride.
Rome 390 or Union Force bindings. The Rome 390's are insanely comfy and the Forces are just badass bindings that will last forever.
And boots, well you can't pick boots, they pick you. Boots are the single most important thing in your arsenal. But spending $300 on boots doesn't automatically mean you've got good boots.... Go and try on a bunch of boots and see what system of strapping feels good, and what boot fits best. I highly recommend a boot with the Dual Boa system.
