Default Beginer Board

I went boarding for the 1st time last week and now I want one.. What would you recommend for a good all-around, easy-riding, free ride board and comfortable boots & bindings on a budget?

weight: 150
height: 5' 8"
shoe size 9.5 mens
riding style: regular footed, general down-hill free riding

I found Burton Freestyle boots to be comfortable, and got them for $85 or so...for bindings, I'd say maybe Burton Missions if you can find them cheap (look for last year's models) or maybe the Union Cadets.

For board...I say go 152-154...look into maybe:
Forum Recon
Salomon prospect

Don't go for a complete beginner board, because you'll outgrow it relatively quick (within a season).
Board: Directional
Bindings: Burton Missions 07
Boots: Burton Freestyle 07

make sure you try on boots in the store, brand isn't important really. make sure they fit, becuase boots that don't fit can ruin a whole day. look at the "boot fitting guide" sticky to see how they should feel.

for a board just look at some nice brands in the price range you want. it sounds like you would proabably want an all mountain board. i have a nitro magnum and i really like it. gnu, rome, nitro, buton, never summer, atomic, forum, etc. are all good brands.

for bindings i hear a lot of people recommend ride, rome, and burton. just find some in your price range made for the type of riding you want. they're all good really. my ride ex bindings have never let me down.
