Lamps My daughter also turns 10 in December, this will be her 4th season riding, and she weights 60 lbs. She has a carvy riding style and took over her sisters 130 cm protest last year. camber is good for edge hold here in the east, she was on a 125 feelgood smalls prior to this board, and likes this more. She rarely goes in the park.

f00bar Definitely some good deals. I've actually decided to keep another year on his 120 chopper and look for the sweet deals next summer on a t. ripper/evo in a 135 range. I figure he can stick with that a good 3+ years until he's up to a regular size so I don't mind the investment and with him only going into his second season the chopper still isn't bad.

No tax, no shipping.

You would be hard pressed to find a better price on this board. Not too many boards left, and to use the price match, the place you are matching has to have same size same model

good luck
Wow nice!! That's cheapest then the deal I found. I ended up getting my son the 125 evo mini from daddies board shop. It was $182. Now just got to decide which bindings to get him.

rcboxer Ya to me it seems like they recommend long boards for there weight. There is no way he would like a 140. Maybe a 130 at the most if it had rocker between the feet I would think. But last year he shredded on the chopper 110. I know the chopper is a flat based board. I'll be getting him a board with a little rocker in it and rocker boards feel smaller then there actual size. He rode a 120 board one day last year and really didnt like it. It was the Rome mini shredder i believe, I think its also flat based. Im kinda leaning toward the NS mini evo 125.

On both those aren't they sizing him at 140? While my son is on the smallish size he throws around his 120 chopper pretty good at 15lbs less. And the Burtons seem to size much heavier for some reason. 140 just seems like quite a jump, though it'd probably be his last non adult board.

Unfortunately it's a pretty limited market for anything other than beginner boards with even less reviews to help you out. You kind of have to go by the reviews of the big brothers and take them at their word that the smaller boards are the same at half the price.

larrytbull with the youth boards I found that the weight ranges really vary. the skill of the rider helps to determine if you want to go longer (usually stiffer) on same weight range.
my son is an advanced rider on all mountain and in park he is good with boxes and jumps, he is just having issues with rails. hoping his week at woodward wil help on that, If he is lighter I would go to the shorter end of the spectrum for weight range the board will probably flex better, which will help in park

you might also want to look at
arbor elelment mini
or the arbor booger
they have a more mellower sidecut tech like magnatraction called grip tech
