We got my nephew a Hyperlite Motive 109 when he was 5 and about 40#'s. He seems to really dig it. With the way he's growing, won't last beyond this summer I'm sure. He's about 55#'s now and a couple inches taller than in this pic from last year. I don't have any from this year yet, but the boards starting to look a bit small now. We got about 2 full seasons out of it and will just hang on to it for the other munchkins in the family that aren't old enough to ride yet.
