Newb equipment

I, like mostly everyone else, am looking for new equipment so I can start to enjoy the sport also. I have been a couple of times and now want my own gear. i am about 5'9" 180 and looking into around a 160 size board. I am looking at the forum roost or the burton clash. I want something easy to ride so when I decide that its time to go extreme, then i will. Also looked at burton driver x boots but honestly those are the only ones I tried on. I tried those on with the k2 cinch bindings. The boots were very comfortable but I am thinking I should just stick with regular strap in bindings. i want my boots and bindings to last so I want something good.

Oh I will mostly be freeride for now. Any suggestions on the boards, boots, and bindings? Also maybe some comparable equipment?

Thanx

i was checking out those k2 cinch bindings and if you wanna go that direction definately get with the flows. they are a LOT lighter and the metal on the k2's can cause massive problems.

I tried those because thats what the salesman threw at me, but from reading what everyone is saying I rather get good strapin bindings because I have no prob bending down to put one foot in. I hear ride makes a good binding. maybe the spi?

so i am guess in the driver x boots are pretty good.

Verdict: forum roost, ride bindings, and burton driver x

This should be a good setup for a beginner?

Thanks guys

Yes I know but I was told that is what would be best for me if I mostly stick to all mountain. I probably will not hit the park for a few years due to the minimal amount of times that I go boarding each year. I much rather take to the mtn and hit up some backcountry. Should I go with something else?
