new snowboarder

Hey guys, i am 22 years old and i am about to start snowboarding. it is somthing i have been wanting to do for years now, but since i left canada 8 years ago to a coutry with no snow, i never had the chance, now that i am back in canada. i am going to start boarding...
since i am new at this i wanted some info and tips...
i have looked into the camber and rocker snowboard, and stences etc...
i am into freestyle. i would like some opinions on this snowboard

Sims Oath Snowboard 2011/12 - SportChek.ca

i am thinking about buying it mainly because of the price...

You are probably better off asking this in the boards section. As for that board, it is pretty low end. I'd look for a good used board either on here on on a site like Kijiji etc... As far as your angles go that is totally a matter of personal preference. Play around until you find what is comfortable for you.
