Just started boarding this year, im looking to buy my own setup already have boots already got them at a good price (Burton Motos). Im 5'11 weigh 175 been keeping up with people that have ridden for years. Really like hitting ramp and all that hiberty jiberty. I am thinking about that sierra package but not sure, what would you guys say would be a good board i have about 400 to spend if a little more that's fine with me.

get a reverse crew 155 if you like the feeling of a reverse camber board. I have one and its an all mountain rockered board that will be able to handle anything you want to ride. if your more into a cambered board the atomic pivot 156 is cheap and a good board. i have a few buddies who ride this exact same board and love it. they kill it in the park and the pow with it.

for bindings the 09 cartels are at a decent price right now (i ride these everyday)

and the dooms (burton missions with cartel straps) are cheap

agree with your selections, especially if you're just starting, no need to go all out on top end gear. get started and acquainted with a standard setup and then you'll eventually know the setup you like/don't like

Based on what you have said you want to do, get a Stunt, as for sizing 155 ish should be good i think.

I'd go for the reverse crew over the stunt. I really like mine and it's a more versatile board and higher quality than the stunt.

In reference to your boot question, I have a size 13 boot and I don't have a an extra wide board. So you should be fine with 11.5.

if that the case, I think the Sierrascope is gonna be a good choice b/c its Flat Kick (flat camber) which is between a camber board and reverse camber board. Is very forgiving and edge hold is very strong. Is stiff enough in the middle where all-mtn. riding isn't gonna be a problem and its shape adds stability and flexibility, which is good enough where buttering comes easy. And it can def. go fast enough where you can hang or pass up your buddies that's been riding for a while. But the tip and tail is soft enough to jib and butter around. Hope is still there for you. if not go wit the Reverse Crew.
btw i think the Sierrascope is a good fit right in between the Reverse Crew and the Stunt.
 
i took some time to find this, more like a few clicks...

152 board is on the seriously small side for someone who is 175 pounds especially for someone who is not looking for a dedicated park board imo.

I know people are recommending the reverse crew but keep in mind you might not like reverse camber more than camber so it is a good idea to try a reverse cambered board before you buy one in my view.

That Sierra Crew Package is not a bad option for the price.

you gotta try a rocker board before you buy it, it rides a whole lot different but a bunch of people prefer it.
