Since he's only ten you don't really have to get him that good of equipment because he's just going to grow out of it in a year or two, so I would just look on some websites for whatever kids size boards are in your price range and it they usually have size charts on the sites. The-house.com and dogfunk.com are pretty good sites.

if the kid is 10 then just look at the specs on mini boards you should get an idea what size he needs so and so
and dont need to be all spec out, its not like hes gonna go massive, i say $200 and under for 3b's board binding boots
dont need to waste so much money on something most likely to be used only 1 season.

Last year my dd rode a 125, she was nine but is built like an amazon woman. We picked her up a 133 this year. She will be 10 and is about 85 lbs and is about 4'9. I would see about getting something in the lower 130s for him. Good luck!!!
