beginner q/a board and tuning

hey guys,i am from canada, i consider my self a begginer at snowboarding, i got 1 full season in 05/06 and 5 weeks in 06/07, i am 5`5 160lbs size 9 foot. i broke my first board it was a burton clash back in 05/06 now i have a burton royale 158. i mainly ride the mountain i havnt been in the park. i was wondering how this board suits me,
i dont have much money to go out and buy a new board, if i should go buy anew one i might be able to spend max 300-400 for one. id prefer not to.
now i need some tuning equipment, i use to take my board in once in a while but i think this year i will tune it my self. i am gonna buy stuff from kuu, i checked there website and they seem to make some good stuff and they ship with in canada.
so i was wondering what kind of equipment i should get. i have about 130 dollar budget for the stuff i need.
i am going to be in niseko and hakuba japan for 3 months month and a half at each place.
thanks and sorry for a long post

ps: can you guys lead me to a canadian website that will have a starter kit, ie wax, iron, brushes and files. its really confusing with all the stuff you can buy.
