I'm 120 pounds 5 ft 4 or 5 inches with shoe size 9 and I have the Ride Kink 2011 152. I'm still not jumping but I'm getting there and I'm starting buttering around just a bit now (only beginner stuff for now). I don't have experience with a lot of boards but I really like this one. It feels good riding it, and I get a lot of compliments on it so I guess that counts for something too

My brother has the Ride Machete 158 but he's a lot bigger and heavier. I heard a lot of good things about it and one person I talked to said the Ride Machete's good for buttering.

Good luck choosing! Ask around or read some reviews before making your final decision because it costs a lot and if you get stuck with a bad board... that won't be good.

OH and if you think you're going to be growing a lot more then you might want to get a size that's a bit bigger. That way you can grow into it and it'll stay good for a longer time. Good luck with whatever you choose!
