Default What should my first freestyle board be?

Hey guys I'm new to this site I just joined this week. Just a little bit of background info on me is that I'm 15. 115lbs. 5 foot 7 inches. I currently ride a k2 brigade 147. Also I am goofy foot. Unfortunately I'm also "Stuck in Ohio". So I rarely get to ride any big mountains. But ive recently been getting into freestyle and I want to upgrade to a freestyle board. I prefer ramps over rails and boxes But i still do both. The ramps i go on are only anout 4-5 foot though. I would like a very flexible and lightweight board. What would be a good board for me? And what size? Im willing to spend about 400$ but can go up to 500$ if needed. Ive looked at the Rome artifact rocker. Is that good? Also the libtech skate banana? What do you guys think I should get? Thanks.

Either you are like really thin, or I am really fat. (16y 145lbs)

I really just start moving into boards, but when I posted a similar post theese are the one I got recomended: Sierra Stunt or Sierra Crew, Rome Agent and Academy Propoganda (Primarly European Manufactor and Seller)

I agree. I'd vote for a horrorscope or an ultrafear. Throw some Union Contact pro's on that thing and get pressy with it.
