I would suggest a 150 to fit his feet on the board better but make sure the board has a soft flex, or else he'll have a hard time turning. For his weight you want something shorter like a 140 because it will flex easier, but he'll have crazy toe and heel drag, so a longer board will be wider and fit his feet on better. So getting him a 150 (possibly in a wide) with soft flex (like a park/street board) would be ideal. Or you could look at something like a burton Nug. It's short, but is nice and wide to fit his boots on the board with minimal drag, except it's kind of expensive. You're probably most likely to find a cheaper board that's closer to 150 that has a soft flex. That's a tough situation. Happy hunting, and good luck
