Yesterday I went with my mother to a shop in The Netherlands, because I had to try shoes. But we went home with a new board, bindings and shoes!
Because it's 'end of the season' there wasn't much choose, but we had a really good deal.
I now have a 152 Burton Lipstick 2012, with Burton Cartel 2012 bindings (green haha) and burton shoes. I really love it, but I hope it will ride well.

You're welcome! Yeah, I would be stoked on that deal if I were you
The link (Proboardshop) will deliver to the Netherlands for an additional $65 iirc. Check the site and the shipping info. Or, phone them and ask. I've called them before and spoke with a chick there that was super nice and helpful (I have never purchased anything from them though).
As for boots, find a pair that fit you best; go to a shop and try on as many as you can. Bindings...I have a board very similar to the Eminence (Gnu B Pro) and have 10/11 Union Milans on mine. I like the bindings so far, minimal issues. I was also considering tossing a pair of Flux GM30s or Rome Madisons on it, but went with the Unions because I was able to purchase them locally. Perhaps you can check out those three binding options. Be sure that your boots fit your bindings, too!

Aaah so much thanks for all the help! I really want this board now haha.
But do you know anything about the delivering costs to the Netherlands?
And what kind of bindings and boots do you advise haha?

I'm assuming your coming from a positive camber board? If so, you might really like the C2BTX tech because it still has pop. A zero camber profile (like the Nitro Fate you mentioned) is flat, no camber. A pure banana (BTX) might feel a little squirrely carving but good in the park. However, considering you're an advanced rider, like the park, and going for an instructor course, a blend of the two is your best bet imo.
Like rdot84, my vote is for last season's Roxy Eminence. You're getting a $500+ deck within your price range (not much, if anything, has changed from last season's to this season's). As for the graphics, I happen to like the clean and simple top sheet haha, but if you don't, you can always sticker it up anyway you want! I really think this is your best bet considering what you're looking for.
The Rossi Diva is another good suggestion but out of your price range. Sorry, I don't know much about Elan boards but in looking at the link, it's a traditional (positive) camber board. For around the same price, you get more tech with the Roxy. You might really like the hybrid camber (I do!). It also has magnetraction, so it will help on ice (if you ever have ice where you ride).
Here's a review Shayboarder (a chick) did on last season's Eminence Snowboard Review: 10-11 Roxy Eminence C2 BTX – Shayboarder.com

|rdot84||Looking at the posts again...I think for an all mountain freestyle ride the Roxy eminence is a good bet. Good price and proboardshop is a decent site. I've purchased items from them before.|

That same site also offers pretty good reviews of boards to make a better informed decision. Or it could just make it more difficult by seeing so many different boards. Haha.

The Roxy Cadence seems very nice! The only thing I could notice is that I think the appearance is a little boring? But maybe I am just a little to picky.
