400 for 2 boards and 2 wetties is a really good price. Thing is tho if they are foamies your gonna be re-investing in a new board sooner rather than later if you take to the whole thing.
That Bic board you were looking at is the same as the one I started out on but the one your looking at has flowers on it (only difference) I didnt find it that difficult to start on it and i used it for a year before i upgraded.
So my advice (right or wrong) would be to buy a board rather than a foamie and then do a few lessons with a rented foamie before heading out with your bic minimal and then just perservere with the bic until you get used to it. There is a bit of a difference as in it will be harder to catch waves but once you start catching them you'll be flying it.
here's a rough guide to bic boards http://www.bicsportsurfboards.com/produ ... ,3,61.html
So you should be able to figure which one your suited to. Now this is NOT gospel but it helps
With wetsuits its a matter of choice really I got a good one because I knew i'd be surfing into the winter and wanted something that would last a bit so i went with an O'Neill Mutant. regardless of how much you spend on one I would go with a 5 mil suit as in you'll be cold in a 3 mil right now.

Im no expert but hopefully all that will help you a bit
