Default what to get?

hey guys. I am buying my first board in a week or two and i am just a little unsure of what to get.
i was thinking Burton Dominant deck, Cartel EST bindings, and some freestyle boots. Is this a good setup? if there is something better that i can get for that kind of money please post some suggestions. This is also my first post on the snowboardingforum so im not sure if this is in the right spot or not.

Thanks

I wouldn't recommend the Burton Freestyle boot. IMHO Burton doesn't do good boots. Get DC or 32 boots.

Whatever you do... do not select your boots by brand. Try to go to a local shop and try on as many boots as you possibly can. Pick the ones that fit you best, have no pressure points, and are well comfy. Boots are probably the most important part of your setup if you don't want to have sore feet by the end of a day on the mountain. If the boots you select are $200+ I would suggest sinking the money into it... It will make your riding experience so much better.

Watch him end up with 32s and then have them fall apart after half a season!

as far as decks go, check out Atomic for very good boards with great prices. Boards like the Hatchet or the Axum are good freestyle boards for very cheap. Don't let the prices fool you, they're good boards!
Also maybe check out Bataleon snowboards. With their TBT you'll supposedly never catch an edge, yet they still have great edge hold on turns. Definitely more expensive than atomic, but i've heard their triple-base technology is awesome.

Not bad as your first post. Makes me wonder if you are that seller.

No kidding. Besides, you can find better deals than those if you look.

Uhm no. Ignore this man, my Burton Hails are astounding boots and many on here would agree. But dont buy boots based on reviews alone...
Go into the store with no preconceptions on what boot you want and try them ALL on until you find the one that is snug, your heel doesnt lift, and is comfortable to walk around in for a few minutes.

Then if you find multiple boots you like that fit well(not likely), THEN go based on others reviews for durability/packing out too quickly/etc...
