Kid's wakeboard

My 5 year old boy has been bugging me about wake boarding and think he's ready to learn. I'd be so stoked if he was riding this season. He's away on vacation right now and I'd like to surprise him with a board when he gets home.
Does anyone have a suitable board (maybe 122"/124") and bindings they're looking to sell. Any recommendations on brand, model & size?
Thanks!

I just bought my kid (6 year old, 48 lbs) a used Liquid Force board with bindings for $200 at a local shop. Had to negotiate his $249 asking price. I went with the size 118, as it is good for weight up to 75 pounds. I was actually talking with a board rep at the King of Wake tour, and he agreed that either a size 118 or 124 is good to start out with for the young ones not only because the kid can grow into it, but he mentioned it is actually easier to get up and stay up with a bigger board. I would recommends decent brand to help assure quality. Good luck with your search!
