board for 12 year old

My son is 11 now, but will be 12 next season. He weighs about 105lbs now. Rides the park. Currently riding a k2 spitfire. He's on his second season with it. I don't know the size of it, but I beleive it is a youth model. If I had to guess, I'd say around 130ish cm. Such good deals on so many boards right now, wouldn't mind picking him up a new one for next season. What size would be good for him, and any specific board suggestions? He loves the looks of the K2 WWW's, but is their smallest size going to be too big for him yet?

well it also depends on what he mainly focuses on
does he do mostly jumps, boxes/rails, or jibbing? things like that would help determine the board. some boards are better at jumps and pops and some are more better at buttering there are a lot of factors
maybe you should mention his actual board length right now etc

Like I said in the original post, I don't know what size his current board is. I'm guessing a 132? He loves buttering and the rails. Wants a soft board. That forum looks like a good board for him.
