Buying my first board

Sup guys. I'm buying my first board in the next month or 2 while prices are cheaper. I have a total of about 10 days of boarding under me and am wanting to move into more advanced features like medium sized jumps, the half pipe, and trying some black diamonds in deep powder.

I tried 3 boards so far as rentals and the one that I felt the most comfortable on was the 2009 Burton Hero 155cm.
Do you guys have any recommendation about where I should shop around for this board along with boots and bindings? Is this a decent board for a mid level rider with my size and background? I wear size 10 shoes, ride normal, 5ft 10inches tall, 148pounds by the way. Thanks for any advice you can give me.

go to your local shop, tell them what you've done and what you want to do, and they'll help you pick out something that's good for you
