A board for the Big Boyz!!!????!!!??

Ok,Guys/girls
This is my 1st post for this season so its good to be back.With the season only a few months away My brother has really been looking at new boards.Right now he rides a 09 Burton Custom 162.He is around 6'1 Size 13-shoes,and 220 lbs or under(its a mystery..lol).He has been riding for almost 5 years now at the age of 30.
This season he is wanting to venture into the park and learn how to ride switch.As far as skill is concerned although he has been riding for 5 seasons,He has never went into the park before last season and really is just learning how to hit jumps and stuff.Dont get me wrong when it comes to getting to the bottom of the hill on the steeps he just bombs them.But even still when he leaves the ground he looks out of control.Now I know there is no board that will fix all of his problems only practice will do that.My question is what is a good board that he could look into that is a Reversed Cambered Twin.??He also would like to use a smaller board.We got to demo a new Burton Nug last season and he really likes it because he could use 154(or somthing)but the new ones are cambered and the old ones dont come big enough.Any suggestions would be helpful Thankyou.

You are not going to get a board downsized and forgiving for park that does not chatter and handles bomb runs.

Closest thing is gonna be an Arbor Blacklist. It is a Midwide and with System tech it should fit his foot.
