park board for a 10 year-old

My son has a forum board that has been great for him to learn on, but now that he is working more in the park, he needs a more flexible board.

He is a bit small for his age so it's been hard to find a variety of boards in his size. We might have to get something online. He has his own money to spend on this, but of course I don't want to sink a lot of cost since he is going to outgrow it. Luckily he has a younger brother who is less advanced so he should be able to use the boards as they are passed down.

I've found a few shops that will allow trade-ins on junior equipment if you buy it there, but these places don't have much selection for kids gear.

He is favoring a Burton Superhero right now, and I don't know enough to advise him otherwise. He is going to be training again in the park soon so if we have to custom order, we should do so this month. Any suggestions?

The boy is looking at a Burton Custom Camber in 135cm. Any thoughts from the experts?
