Talking Hi everyone, I need help with choosing board for a starter!

Hi there, this is my first post on this forum, I am posting on this section because I am about to buy a board and I need you guy's help and opinion.

I went boarding 4 times last season, I was able to turn and still learning how to crave big S shape down the hill , I was using the rental gears and it wasn't cheap in money wise so I did some saving over the past summer so that I can buy a set of gear this season.


I am 24 yrs old, 5'5 male weight around 135 lbs. Feet size is 8 1/2.

I did some window shopping recently and today I came across this cheap deal from a local sport store.
They have this package on sale for $299 CAD which includes Board + Bindings only.
Choice of Boards: (5150 Vice) 5150 Snowboards 07/08
or
(5150 Sect) 5150 Snowboards 07/08

with no choice but these Bindings: (5150 FF1500)
5150 Snowboards 07/08

This package does not come with boots, which I think is a good thing because for boots I would like to spend abit more cause I did some research and everyone recommends a starter should start with a nice pair of boots.

As for boots I have these in mind Burton Moto)$189 CAD.
Burton.com

The total cost for board + bindings + boots would be around $550 CAD.
What do you guys think? Please drop you inputs and let me know what you think,

Thanks for reading.

Seems like a decent board, but I couldnt say for sure. That website is kind of lame.

As for the boots, the burton motos would be a great option, awesome price point, and they fit really well and are comfy. If you can spare the extra coin, the Rulers are even abit more comfy. I use the Burton Ions ('07) and I love the speed lacing system. I wouldnt say its faster than traditional laces, but it is for sure easier. You dont have to dig your fingers into the laces, worry about tangles or knots, or anything like that. And plus, adjustment is easy, its super fast to adjust. I adjust them on the lift without a problem.

Thanks for the input, I will definately go check out the Burton Rulers and Ions, see how much of a price difference they are.
