new setup advice needed!!

Hey everyone!

I just have a question:

i am:
180cm tall
78kg
Size 11 Shaun white boots
Ride regular stance
my regular ski place is Thredbo, Australia.

I have been riding for 4-5 seasons, been using this crappy "rad-air board" for all of those seasons.I love hitting jump, mid size jumps, tabletops but i also love freeriding and if i see a nice ledge i'll hit it..regardless if i know ill land it or not haha. I would call my self an intermediate rider.

I'm looking at buying a whole new setup bindings + board.
i'm also thinking about buying 2 setups, i may be going to japan at the end of the year.

My questions are what 2 boards + bindings do you guys recommend that i get?

and why do you recommend these?

also what size boards and what size bindings??

I appreciate any help!!!

cheers guys!

We will need to know what kind of riding you expect to do in Japan. Are you going to be in the mountains or in the domes? What kind of riding do you want to do. Based on that, you will get a better response instead of everyone telling you what "THEY" like to ride.

My experience and what I do in snowboarding is really quite
independent of the industry and the more independent it is,
the more pure and better I feel about snowboarding.- Craig Kelly

ok, dw about the japan board.
It's mainly for the snow in Australia.
I was thinking of the japan board only as a secondary option..

The riding i like to in Australia is mainly freeride and hitting jumps.
