Default 5'7 male, 100lbs, which board?

I'm hosting an exchange student from china this year. He's 5'7" and 100lbs...NO JOKE!! Size 6-7 mens shoes.

Great kid, wants to learn to shred. I need board ideas, he's not heavy or powerful and will need a board he can flex/steer. Any ideas? womens boards, kids boards or just stick him on a standard guys board? Are rockers more forgiving for beginners?

thanks all!

Rent?

If you really wanna buy, Arbor Draft 147, Nitro Subzero 148, Ride Crush 147, Salomon Salomonder 145, Signal Park Flat 146... good places to start.

Ya...rent vs buy always an issue. I'm 42 and started 3 years ago with rental stuff. I almost gave up until someone loaned me a decent rocker board set up correctly. It was night and day.

I hate to start the kid on something that makes the first few times more difficult than it already is :-)
