    Welcome to snowboarding and to Frosty Rider.  I can help you out with this.  Where do you plan on riding the most? (Local mountain)  Also, I assume you will want to be doing freestyle riding?

    I have a couple different boards in mind for you.  What is your boot size and age?

    A really nice all around freestyle board is the [html]

    Lib Tech Attack Banana Snowboard[/html]The 151cm is a good size for you, the waist width on that one is 24.7cm which is spot on for your 9.5 boot size.  Make sure to get the regular width, not the wide which it also comes in.  It is a little pricey, but if that is in your range it is a winner of a stick 🙂For bindings I would go with either Burton or Flow.  The Burton Cartel is the standard in goodness in traditional strap bindings.  They are very comfy and the toe strap is really cool as it can be positioned in different ways depending on preference.[html]

    Now, Flows are what I ride. I can never go back to traditional straps. They are a different kind of binding where you fold down the back and kick your boot in and fold the back up and snap it locked. They make getting in and out mich quicker and easier. Every yaer, Flow keeps innovating and these days nothing is like their new NX2s. They are lightweight, adjustable, strong, and confortable -- what more could you want?

    All-in-all, that would be a combo that kicks butt and would last a long time.
