Default New boarder needing help with equip

I'm pretty new to snowboarding, only a couple of weeks under my belt. But Im tired of using rental boards, and so I am looking for some bindings, boots and a board. I was hoping that the forums could help me out with some advice on what brands arent too spendy for a beginner but still decent gear. Im 6 feet tall, 190 lbs and wear size 12 wide, if any of this info could help you out with suggestions. I thank everyone in advance for the help!

I've riden rentals, Burtons, RIDE, and LibTechs. LibTech is my favorite so far. But they are pretty expensive, well all boards are... anyhow! RIDE is a nice board for anyone and they won't cost you an arm and leg (not like most of have any more 'cus of gas.) But I would suggest RIDE. Burton is only good if you wanna look like every other person on the mountain.

Boots, get whatever looks nice and is comfy. They have to be sturdy though!

I don't know much about bindings so I'll let others help with that.

my fiance is about the exact same size.

If I were looking to get her another board, I'd really look into a couple of Atomic boards. You can get an 05/06 Atomic Tika for mad cheap now... great board, AWESOME board for the price for a beginner as well.

Look on ebay.

check out The House Boardshop Snowboards Snowboard Boots Bindings Clothing Skate Shoes. They have really good prices and sell just about everything but Burton. That's where I have gotten everything but my bindings and I'd recommend them to everyone. Quick shipping and good customer service.
