Thats a decent budget, about what I had. Search craigslist for board, my brother found a like-new condition Salomon Prospect for 135, and I got my Forum for 150...and check local stores for sales because its the end of the season (Dick's sporting goods still have stuff since I bought it a month or so ago, basically all of the bindings and whatnot are still there...found boots for 85 and bindings as well...)

And definately try on various boots to see how they fit

I think you would need a board around sized 152-158. What boards, bindings, and boots have you been looking at, you have to a at least a idea on what you might want!

Im not pressuring you, you should already have an idea on what you might want before asking people what they think, this will help us so we can get a I idea on what you want and what might be better for you.

At your weight I'd go with a 151-155 (155 for deeper snow etc.) You don't weigh much and board bigger than 153 will be a PITA at your weight. I've never heard of the board you are looking at so it could be anything, don't buy it at walmart
