Default Need advice for a new board

Hey guys,

My cousin needs help buying a new board. I am having a hard time finding one for him. He is 14 yrs old, 6-3 tall, roughly 185lbs, size 13 boots, rides mostly park due to the ski hill that he rides at is mostly a large park, and his price range is $250.00 to $300.00. I thinking he should get a 160-162 due to the fact that he is going to fill out his 6-3 frame within the coming years because hockey is the main sport he does. He also needs a wide board obviously. I'm thinking he should get a twin with a medium soft flex to it (4-10.) I've been trying to look to find him some deals on last years models, but haven't really found a definitive board that would fit those categories. Sierra snowboard has a decent selection but they're mostly Burtons that get discounted. I'm not a HUGE fan of the ISC(I had a Un Inc and I was kinda iffy on it) but I may have had a bad experience with it so I'm not ruling Burton out. Any suggestions would be nice, also the link to where he could purchase it from. Thanks

If he mainly rides park I would recommend either a Capita Stairmaster or Horrorscope, or a K2 World Wide Weapon.

I'm 6'4" 200lbs and I ride a 155 wide Capita Horrorscope FK and it's SICK.
