Hey guys,

thats a good board for him start off with. he will grow into it quickly and can learn a lot on it.

I would think the Liquid Force Nemesis 131, would be a better setup for his weight.
How long has he been riding and what level of rider is he?
Do you have a shop that demos boards? If so have him Demo the boards he likes and see what feels best to him..

My son weighs 81 lbs. and rides a LF Trip 134 with no problems.

A 135 Omega should be a good size/choice. That way he won't outgrow it right away. And it's a good board to progress on.

i think he is good....i weighed about 130 when i rode the omega 135....great board to learn on and it will still be a great board even as he progresses.

Plus he has the option of center fin or no center fin for when he gets better.

Agree with Leo. He can use, learn, and progress on that board for several years.
