Default Buying 2th board! Park/Rail/Flex

Hi there boarders! Peter here

Before I begin I must apologize for my bad english, but that's life!

Yeah, I have been snowboarding for 2 season's now, and I got my carves, and I am starting to move into rails and medium sized jumps. Atm I got a pretty stiff board, and a bit to heavy for me, so I can't really make to rotate it good on jumps, and I can't pop it. Olie I find impossible with the board, because of the stiffnes. I find it really, boring. So I am looking for help to choose a board that seems to be a good one for my riding;

I am looking for a board with flex, so I can do board press (Tail/Nose), pop around, and get some air with My budget is alright I guess for my current skillset, about 500-600$ maximum. I live in Norway.
I got a snowboard shop not far away from me, and they got a website. Could you check if any of thoose board on this website is anything to consider? Press here

My current weight is about 143lbs +/- 5, height is about 1.83m (6ft 03⁄64in) and shoe size is around 10-10.5 (US size)

Weight 143lbs +/- 5 (65kg)

Boot size 10-10.5 US (45 EU)

Riding style (do you like to charge steeps?): Spin 7's/9's, ride groomers?) As I am in the begginger/getting comfertable level, I guess this brett is going to be used to 180s, 360s, railing, poping around, and 5īs later on. And presses, loads of presses! It will be a park&rail board.

Age (are you still growing and puttin on weight?): I am 16, but my weight and height is pretty stable, but I guess I will gain more weight.

budget (if you have one): Max. 500-600$ but if you could check this page, if any of thoose boards are worth it;This page

Your location of riding; Norway, really canīt say more. Since we got all kinds of weather and different ride places.
