Yes, if you want to go a 2nd time, buy boots, rent board.

jml22 151 for someone whos' 5'1
That sounds like something you'd have to grow into.
You're probably going to hit a growth spurt really soon So i wouldnt buy anything super expensive unless you or your dad is good at selling things on craigslist.
Craigslist is your friend for something like this.

Burton Freestyle Snowboard Binding (Men's) | Peter Glenn

The board I LOVE and the bindings are good! Here are links ^ the orange color matches the board and they're medium, which will fit your feet. Actually I'd be jelous, I have the black ones

Roux I started on a rocker and I believe that he would have more fun on a rocker considering he has never gone before. No need to strap him up to a camber board and have him hate his first experience.
Just my two sense...

Either way, There are many boards out there for your price range. you could even probably find a good package deal!
I'd just go to your local board shop and look around with your dad and ask whoever works there what they think your proper size would be. It's basically all preference, but since your beginning I'd ask them what they think a good size for you would be and this would most likely be a good place to start.

Good luck!
