He can link turns and go down about anything but he has only had about 15 days on the snow in total. I am thinking the custom x is too advanced for him.

I heard him talking about the sherlock but wouldn't the custom flying v be better for freeriding?

What would you guys recommend for an intermediate freerider custom or sherlock?

Personally I'm not too much of a fan of reverse camber when it comes to pure freeriding. It's excellent tech for all mountain/park boards. I'd just snag him something with traditional camber and a stiffer flex. The sherlock is a great freeride board. It's twinned out with the flying V rocker setup. Couldn't ask for much more than that.
