i paid $230 for my Rome agent, $114 for my Rome 390's and $100 for my Burton Rulers + 100 shipping in total.
so you'll be hard pressed to keep it under $500

Ride Beta Snowboard Bindings 2008: TruSnow.com - $125 for Ride Betas
Sierra Snowboard Board Sierra Crew - 150 for Sierra Crew
And...then find some boots. A little pricier than what I started with, but probably of higher quality.
Or...check your local craigslist. There should be some good deals on there...

|Simply^Ride||personally I don't think you need a wide board, I have a 11.5 and I use a normal board|

Shop around there are some great deals around. I got my Rome Agent for $270 shipped and I paid $130 for my 390's. For the boot I think I overpaid but oh well, that's what you get when you don't do any research prior buying .
But I agree you need about $100 to get a decent gear that will last you and that will be enjoyable.

|killclimbz||Oh yeah, you might want to talk to our friend Suburban Blend about packaged deals. He either owns, manages, or at least works at a shop by the same name on the East Coast. He might be able to work something out for you.|

|killclimbz||$450 for an entire set up (board, boots, bindings) is going to be a little tough I would think to get you into everything. Even if you got everything on SAC deals I think it would still hit somewhere just north of $500. A $600 budget would serve you better. The thing is you can with cheaper gear, but you just end up paying more in the long run when you realize how it sucks or it falls apart on you. If you are going to drop coin on one item definitely make it the boots.|

Well im 5'7 and a half and around 155 pounds or so. I used a Ride board that was a 156 cm board and it seemed to fit just well but every board is different. I mostly ride the groomers, sometiems hit the park for a few runs but mostly front side of the mountain with the occassional powder (Im thinking all-mountain board?). Price range, eh not sure, grand total i want to be around 450 or less preferbly but something that will last a few seasons.
