Advice on kids set up

I'm looking for a lower priced board and bindings for a 10 year old boy. My GF's kid took his first lesson Sun. and loved it. We'd like to get him something that will last a couple seasons. I posted a WTB in the classifieds here and been checking ebay, but I don't really know what I am looking for. I checked a board calculator and it said a 134 would the size range, he was on a 128 one Sun. I'm primarily looking at used stuff (getting new boots though) or closeout since we are trying to stay around 150 for budget and don't want a cheapo board bindings. Kid picked it up pretty quick, and is a fairly good park skater. Something with a "skate" feel, leaning towards park would probably be best.

Rider stats:
Age: 10
ht: 5'
wt: 85lbs
shoe: 6

Any tips or recommendations would be most appreciated. Also if anyone has a used kids board you want to get rid of let me know. Thanks

With my kids got used stuff; they grow alot in a year or within a season and then next year trade up to a bigger size. Almost anything with in range will work...they don't know better. If you are going to get a couple of years out of it go bigger. When they seem to be slowing down on the growing and if they are now addicted then get good stuff. But good fitting boots first.

Thanks Wrath, we are looking at used stuff for sure except for boots. I think it would be better to buy used quality brand gear then new cheap crap. I know boots are supposed to fit snug, but for kids can we get away with getting something a little bigger and maybe stuffing the toes? I don't want him to out grow them before the season is over lol.
