Default How's this for my first board?

Seem alright for a good all mountain board?
(im planning on just doing some terrain park and just generally cruising down the mountain)
I'm ~5.9ft and 140 lbs. I'm gonna get the 158.
That's a strap that goes over the front of the toes, correct? I've heard good things about that type of binding so..
and do these seem like alright boots?

idk if its just me but 158 sounds a little too big....

and the boots, NEVER buy boots online. You should go to your nearest store and try on boots so you know if they are comfortable or not. Dont blindly buy boots online because they are cheap.

158 is definitely on the big side, especially if you're considering doing anything in the terrain park.

I live in Vegas so i also dont have a lot of places to buy boots. But sports chalet, Big five, dicks sporting goods, etc will all have some boots. May not be the cheapest or biggest selection. But better than buying boots online and having them too small or feel uncomfortable.
