My son rode a motive (109 and 119) from age 5 to 10 and tried a Ronix Vision when he was 10. The vision is much slower in the water and he hated it. He has been on a CWB since and loves them. He rode the Surge until this season and moved to the Reverb. He is now 14. He is a small kid though. Just approaching 100 lbs.

I've got the surge for sale

and a slingshot super grom park board

My 10 yr old rides an Obrien Hooky and likes it the best so far.

Don't be afraid to go with a bigger WB for kids. The displacement and forgiveness are great for learning and they can grow into them.

Our 10 year old is on a 135 and will get at least 2-3 seasons out of it.

I disagree. When your kid plays baseball do you buy him a glove and bat made for a teenager?

Sure they can ride a board that is too big for them but they struggle to turn it and they just go along for the ride rather than controlling the board.

^dd, I get the analogy to a glove and bat, but IMO incorrect comparison for a board. YMMV.

EVO WB Sizing Guide: https://www.evo.com/guides/how-to-ch...and-size-chart

Our 10 yo is 95 lbs on a Ronix Vault 134 and bindings that fit him perfectly. He's a complete beginner and has no issues carving and has already started to air it a bit. The board is also incredibly light and the length helps avoid some toe side OTB diggers.

I'll concede your son is better off on a 130+ board but he is not a typical 10 year old at 95 lbs nor is my son a typical 14 year old at 95 lbs. That's why I added his weight (approaching 100lb) to my comment above.

Size matters
