Burton 3-hole boards will only work with non-EST Burton bindings or other 3-hole compatible bindings.
To answer your question, you can't go wrong with a 140 for now. He'll eventually grow out if it, but it should be a great board for a few seasons.
P.s. The House is an awesome supplier, with great shipping, and top-notch customer service. Really had a great first experience with them and I'll be loyal for life...
(excuse for my english), may I use a Burton Custom binding size M (EU 41/44 cm.26/29)?
Burton Custom Smalls: Great board with Flying V tech so it will ride and perform like a dream. Forgiving and will carry him far in his riding. The Custom is the 'do it all' in the Burton line - and in snowboarding in general for that matter.
LibTech Little Ripper: Banana tech (rocker) and Magne-Traction. The rocker, as with the Burton, makes for a very playful and forgiving board. Imagine the board lying flat on the ground. The Rocker technology will force the tip and tail to be off the ground - like an banana. The Magne-Traction is all about the sidecut. Looking down the edge of the board the sidecut will appear as if it wabbles, or undulates, the length of the board. This gives a great edge control. http://www.the-house.com/9830ltlrb13zz-lib-tech-snowboards.html
Boots: Keep it simple. Check out our selection at http://www.the-house.com/snboj.html. I for one like convenience with kids boots. If you need to help with the boots then consider the Burton Zipline - http://www.the-house.com/bt2zplk04bgb14zz-burton-snowboard-boots.html - this boot laces us simply by turning a dial. Plus it allows him to tighten or loosen the boot throughout the day depending on how he feels.
Binding: The bindings are a critical part of one's set up and often over looked - they are key in transmitting the force from the rider to the board. Too sloppy and the force that the rider exerts never gets to the board which translates into a loss of control. I'm a big fan of the Burton Mission Smalls found here http://www.the-house.com/snbindj.html.
I hope this helps in your buying decision...and thanks for choosing us over Dicks.
