Default board advice/gear advice

Alright, this year i decided to get back into snowboarding. I have gone a handful of times before and i remember the basics, but i have forgotten what to look for as far as equipment. I really like the freestyle riding and the urban stuff, i live in an area that has 3 college campuses within 15 miles of eachother so theres LOADS of room for it. Also, we are about 45 minutes off the border to canada so i have the option of going up there to their mountains. Near our area we have a smaller mountain that has a freestyle park and i have a good size tractor and a field.. so i can have my own park if i choose I weigh 160 lbs and im about 5'10" - 5'11"

So my question to you i guess is...

What are your thoughts on what i should buy as far as this winters gear and board? (The checkbook is not unlimited, but if you know of something worthwhile then let me know.)

You should look into Technine's boards if you're on a budget. They're mostly all under $400 for 2009 stuff, so you should be able to find some 08 stuff for cheap.

08 Rome 390 bindings can be had as low as $114. I assume you will need a L/XL (S/M would be too small if you have average feet for your height). Technine MFM Pro bindings are also always popping up on WhiskeyMilitia/SteepAndCheap.

You will have to find your own boots. Every boot fits different; everyone's foot is different.

hey, i appreciate the input, a buddy of mine had suggested tech 9 boards also, if anyone has any other input on what you think a good buy might be, let me know, whatever set up you may think would fit me. I am looking for a freestyle board thats gonna be perfect for jibbing. Also, if anyone has any good sites to get my hands on some gear, im lookin for new everything (i like the tech9 style, same as in cold world 2007)
