Board Recommendations, Need to find right one

I read some articles from snowolf, some guidelines and tips about selecting a board.
but there are way too many brands for me to pick.

I already bought Raiden WIIG s/m bindings from WhiskeyMilitia


height:5"11
weight: 125 pounds
shoesize: 7.5


I live in SoCal, gonna go to mt.high
I'm looking good all mountain board with boots that will work with Raiden bindings.
I'm on low budget, i don't want to buy cheap crappy board, but reasonable low-priced board.

i tried DC boots size 8 and it seemed to be little bit to small. (is that normal?)
Also, reading the articles, since I weigh lot less than average male, so as my shoesize, is it okay to buy women' boots or kids size snowboard?

if you want a cheap board it's better to buy later in the season. most boards are being sold at retail. Also it's fine to buy boots that are meant for women or kids if they fit well, that's all that matters. most popular all-mountain board on this forum is a neversummer sl. you get what you pay for.
