Or even better, instead of spending the money on a board and bindings, just go for a quality (and well fitting) pair of boots first. Then see what is left in the budget for the board and bindings.

Hell yeah. Buy a really nice and super comfy boot. Then search for a used set of bindings and a used board. People really take for granted how important comfortable boots are. That's is my most valued piece of gear I have. I can ride any board but can you say the same for boots.?????

I'll be renting boots from the mountain for now because I'm a bit short on cash. I am 5' 10", around 140 pounds, 15 years old and still growing. I am a size 11 shoe in most brands.

This is the board. I'll be getting it in 154:

On Sale Artec Hyperfuzz Snowboard 154 2013

The bindings:

On Sale Burton Cartel Snowboard Bindings 2013

The board dimensions are on the website if you scroll down a bit.

Thanks in advance.
get a better board maybe. nice bindings.

+1 to buying boots first. Then buy a used board/binding combo for $250 and go from there. Also, you paired a no-name board with good name bindings. I'd rather get a half decent board like this:

2012 Volkl Spade 154cm Snowboard | eBay

With these bindings:

2013 K2 Indy White Xlarge Mens Snowboard Bindings | eBay

And use the money you saved to buy some boots...

For what it's worth I don't normally suggest eBay, but I used to buy all my gear at their actual store and have had great dealings with them. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from their ebay store.
