What is your overall budget for board/boots/bindings?
What kind of riding are you likely to do? Park? All mountain?
I'm not familiar with Anthem boards, but make sure you review any company's warranty policy. If you buy a "cheap" board without good backing from the manufacturer, and it breaks, you're out the $ and the board. You might want to consider an entry level board from one of the major companies with strong warranties, and check out sales/closeouts on last year's boards online.
