Default Help a noob pick a board!

i want to get into snowboarding. my brother just went out today and i saw some awsome pictures and it made me want to get a board and learn! i had a board when i was like 10 years old so i know how to fall on my ass. thats about it. id like to spend up to $200 for the board and im not sure how much bindings and boots are. so what are some brands i can look into? i weigh 135lbs and im around 5' 8". i dont need any real expensive items because im a noob and if i get good or really like it ill upgrade, i just need basics to learn on. thanks!!

I'm not sure if you're gonna get a decent board for $200, I think that it would be a smarter investment to have a more expensive board for a couple seasons, rather than have a cheap board for one season then upgrade the next. Anyways, the Burton Clash was the #1 "cheap" snowboard for 2004, looks like it goes for about $300.
