What board should I get?

I'm looking for a board.
73 lbs
5' 3"
Boot size: 8
Riding Style: Jumps/ medium kickers(for now), gonna do big air tricks in the future, rails and black runs... so probably all mountain or freestyle
Age: 14 but I can't seem to gain weight no matter how much I eat
Budget: Nothing more than $300
Which board could suit me properly. I need to be able to ollie(not too stiff of a board) and the board should be light-ish(my weight is 73lbs). Prefer Burton or Never Summer but any other reputable brand will do.
Thanks!

with your weight range though, you are looking at kid / girl model snowboards. i don't even know what size board to recommend you on, and furthermore, you should look outside of burton and NS, as your range you are limited in options.
