New snowboard for my son, please help

Hello, my son is already hitting me up for a new snowboard next year.

He really deserves one too. He's put in alot of time on his first cheaper board.

He currently has a Zuma wave 138 ( He is 4'8" appx and about 95 lbs)

He wants a park board with lots of flex, and good pop. He will keep the Zuma as a second board.

I have looked around and what I read on the Rome Label, sounds like a solid choice.

So, I guess my question is...Should I go with a smaller 133 for his park board, or stick with a 138, so he can grow into it?

How much difference does a smaller park board make?

Also, I am open to suggestions as far as brand, and make of board.

Thanks guys, you've been alot of help this year.

Capita Stairmaster Mini Youth is another option in both 133 or 138.

Mind you, I've never shopped there but they seem to be sold out everywhere else.

Disclaimer: I don't have kids so I couldn't make a recommendation based on experience but the standard Stairmaster is a really popular board for park riders.

How old and how much do you anticipate him to be growing/growth spurts are another factor.
