freestyle board for a 13 year old

HI I'm 13 years old and really into park I can carve (not slide) boardslide, Board press, lip slide and variety of other spins and presses on boxes and rails. When me and my friends go out I'm always the one that tries out new rails and rail tricks but I'm also always the one that can't get any hang time on a jump because My current board the Sub Zero is a noodle so I can't get any pop.

I want a board thats going to give me that pop that everyone's talking about. I'm only 13 and way about 110 pounds so all the board reviews I've been able to find are for adult boards any ideas.

Apreciate any help

you want pop get a Ride board. even Burton is coming with the same tech. I would go with a 147 crush. some guy on sierrasnowboard is selling one. if you're interested in it. let me know ill point you to him.

I'm gonna disagree with SnowBrdScotty about the 147. If you're buying a board that you're planning to grow into/cost effective, it'll probably be fine. But if you want something more suitable to ride now, I'd go with something a little smaller for a park board.

it's preference but i'm going on his weight....the slightly long board will help on the jumps and balance
