Boots - whatever fits well and feels good. Need to try it on in the store.
Bindings - I don't know... whatever fits well with the boots.
Board - no idea, but lots of people on this forum are board experts

Bindings, i would go with a medium unless you are just bombing all the time. I like the k2 formulas and nitro phantoms but there are other good options. Those are just ones i like and have ridden.

Board, you probably want something like the k2 raygun, or flow drifter. Again there are others but those are really good value and you can find them cheap online.

Boots, you have to try them on. Every brand fits very differently so you have to take the time to put them on.

The bindings might be a bit on the softer side but other than that it will work very well for you.

You are pretty light so the board size is about right.
