Just let him ride it, and see what he thinks. Once he tries it and sees how much more speed he can carry into a turn, you probably won't be able to get him off of it. The longer the board gets, rider weight is less of an issue anyway. The more velocity, the more kinetic energy the rider has, etc. And you probably shouldn't go too wide with the stance, in order to keep more weight in the centre of the board. Very strong quads wouldn't hurt either.

later,

I agree, let him try it. But don't be surprised if he's totally whipped after 2 or 3 runs. My bet is the "target weight" for that board is more like 150 adult pounds. Happened to my son on what I thought was a "soft" adult board. Maybe a Donek Pilot is in his future, or one of those Goltes boards from Dan? I have a short 4WD he can try out, target weight starts at 110.

suggested weight for an RT 158SL?

I also have a young guy who wants to get off his freestyle board and give alpine a try. I figure he'd have no problem at 140lb.....but dad might have to snow test it too :eplus2: and he's 170lb.

also still looking for M28 boots for the large footed kid--any cheap ones out there?
