flex board

HI. I would like to change my current board (division 23, cm 145) cos I think it is too rigid. I think I need a more flexible one.
I am intermediate level and I would like to start with some small jumps this year.
Given my level and that I am ~157 cm (5.2) which board/size would be good for me? where to buy? (online maybe)...
thanks so much!

Height: 157cm
Boot size 4
Riding style have no idea…intermediate level, would like to start with small jumps etc
Age 28
Your location of riding Vermont

Also, I would like to have your specific opinion on this board offers I got. Would they suit me and what would be a reasonable price.

Unfortunately these are the only details I have, and I am not sure it is enough…
1) Junior 5150 flexible snowboard size 138cm, used ~5 times, mint condition
2) Lamar "Pixie" - the board is new but has a few scuffs here and there from storage. The board had suffered a chip on its nose but it has been professionally repaired with color match epoxy (this part of the board doesn't even toch the snow and will not effect the ride at all). This board is nice and flexible and would ride excellently in the park.
Otherwise, I would very much appreciate any suggestions.
Thanks so much!

Seriously get the Capita I linked...

It's a soft board with the FK technology. FK tech holds an edge with ease, has tons of pop, and is reverse cambered which makes it easier for newer riders to learn how to carve/ride.

You won't be disappointed with that board.

come on don't be that lazy. google the board, click the shopping link and go from there. really not that hard to find a good price and fast shipping; especially because lots of places are doing free 3 day or very cheap two day so you can get it by christmas
