This is a lot of board for him. He is within the design range, but...just. If this is going to be a new purchase, he can get find a model/size that he is better centered in. Is this already a board that he has access to?

timmytard If he's a strong athletic dude he'll love it

But if he's an uncoordinated boob, you should still tell him to get it.
He might not like it
Then you could trade him your deck

Yea, I mean, 210cm Rad Air Tankers are still ridden, and they are 50 cm too long for ANYONE besides Shaq. For sure there is a ton of leeway and ability should be strongly considered.

That would probably be a pretty badass AK board for him

snowklinger that is definitely on the large size.

at 150 lbs I'd suggest a range of:

147-8 for park to

151-2 for all mountain

155-157 big mountain freeride

That size Billy Goat may ride him.

fwiw: my suggestions and preferences are generally on the shorter side compared to other regular posters.

He's looking at the GNU billy goat
He is within the board's weight range but on the lower end. What is his foot size?

speedjason yes and no. depending on what you trying to do and depending on the board.
