I will be shopping around tomorrow for some boots and bindings! I couldn't be any more excited to get going on the mountain! What would be a good size of board for me, I weigh in at 163lbs and roughly 5' 10.5". I have no extra visible body fat as well. Not sure if all that matters but when I was reading a few sizing charts I seen waist width, etc. Thanks again for all the help everyone! As for the reason I quit was mostly because of how often I got to go boarding since I couldn't drive at the time.
A new custom flying V will use Burton's proprietary binding attachment system called the channel, which then works best with the right binding system, which is EST bindings. How much better is debatable. You can get non-EST bindings and put them on that board with a conversion plate if you want, which means that if you later got a board without the channel you wouldn't have to replace the bindings.

Personally I recommend that you get the EST bindings to go with the board, I like the system as it is infinitely and easily adjustable. Some complain that it can slip, I have not had this problem.

Boots shouldn't be a problem in terms of compatibility.

I was looking at the Burton Custom Flying V snowboard, is this a good choice for me or should I look at a different one?

I just bought a Custom FV! But with that being said if you've never ridden a rocker board I think it will be a difficult (but possible) transition... if you want to stick with Burton I recommend this Honcho Snowboard | Burton Snowboards
