Youth Boards

Is a youth board right for me?

Im 17 yrs. old, 125pounds, 5ft. 6inches and Im still going to grow a couple inches.
I really like the Ride Ruckus 148cm but im not sure if its going to be what im looking for because is a youth board!?!?

I usually ride park
- 40% jumps
- 40% box rails
- 10% rails
- 10% just going fast down groomers and olling stuff. lol

*I love doing butters and presses so i need a board with the right amount of flex, not too soft or too stiff.

My local resorts are all groomed so im always riding hard packed snow or groomers

Im mainly worried about the youth board's flex because Im a little older and a more advanced rider than kids that would usually ride youth boards.

Please let me know what you think, it would be greatly appreciated.!
Thanks, Colin
