buying first set up, need help please
 
So I've been boarding a few times, and have rented every time. I now want to buy my own setup, and have been looking at a few local shops.

I'm pretty sure on the size of board I want and that's a 151. I'm 5'8 about 134 lbs. 7.5-8.5 shoe size. The first time I rode they put me on a 148 and I believe this last time was a 151.

As for boards I have a few options in my price range. The 5150 Vice, Morrow Fury, O-Matic Boron, or the K2 Viper. Does anyone have any opinions on which board would be best? I'm wanting to do all-mountain riding.

Boots wise I'm looking at Burton tribute, Burton Moto or Vans Emigre (sp?). Does anyone have any opinions on these? I've heard good things about the Moto's.

And last but not least bindings I have a few options. Most of the package deals I have been looking at include either the Morrow Invasion bindings, or the 5150 FF1500. and if I choose the K2 board that package comes with K2 Mach bindings. Will pretty much any of these bindings work for me? What should I look for in the fit of a good pair of bindings?

Thanks for your help.

Well for my first board I don't want to order online, I want to actually buy it in person. Since I live in Iowa I don't get a heck of a lot of options for boards.

The above list are the boards in my price range at the local shops, the only other boards not on the list sold in the stores are Burtons, and one store has one model of Ride

5150 Vice
Morrow Fury
O-Matic Boron, iffy about that it's a 153.

The place doesn't have any K2's at all in 151 everything else is 155 and larger.

out of those i would go with the 5150 :p
