Awkward question about Burton boards

I went on Burton's website for the snowboard finder thing and it recommended this one board that's called Custom Smalls V-Rocker 145. If I click on it, the only 145 size that shows up is a wide. I think this might be a kids' board :O Am I just a small person? Or... idk. My shoe size is only 9 (mens) and I weigh 120 pounds. Maybe the kids' boards are called "wide" for smaller shoe sizes than regular boards? and why would they suggest that board to me? I might end up getting it because it's only $250 where everything else is like $400. but i need to know if it's good first

I checked the burton site and its in the kids section. BTW 145 seems a little small in the long run; i'm 127 and i use a 149~152. Youth gear is usually a scaled down version of lower-end gear, if you want a good board for 300 then get the Rome Garage Rocker, i demo'd it once and its a great all around board.

Yeah it's a kids board. The custom comes in a 148 which would be fine for you.
