New Snowboarder

Hey guys, I'm really new to the sport and i have a couple questions. I'm 15 years old but im really small for my age. I was wondering what size board would be the best choice for a person of my stature.
--5ft1in tall
--about 1oo pounds
--8 shoe size
I know im pretty tiny lol . But your advice would be greatly appretiated. Thank you.
Oh, and what is the best way to figure out my stance. I have tried being pushed from behind but i could keep my balance with both feet and i tried the whole sliding in your socks thing and i could do it both ways. I don't think those are really good ways to find out what is my stance but what do you think?

I'd suggest a board around 142-144. Another good way to figure out a stance is to think about which foot you use first when walking up stairs

Nice point. I use my right foot, but it seems I'm doing well with a goofy stance...Is stance something that would be natural to someone or learned over time? Meaning I seem to be comfortable with a goofy stance right now, as I've been using it the last couple times..but if I switch over to my "natural" stance, would I be "better"? For a lack of better term.

EDIT: I meant my left foot, but I kick with my right..

u's a tiny hopper...do a women's 140-144 twin, narrow waist and set it up with centered duck angles, e.g., 9's or 12's with medium stance, then go to the hill and find out what's more comfortable...reg or goof. And then tweek the angles and stance to your liking.
