Hi Daneen,

Welcome to MI Windsurfing.

Depending on where your son sails, and exactly how much experience he has might change the recommendations.  As a rule for beginners, stay away from old, narrow boards.  Modern wider boards are much easier to learn on and will make for a much more positive experience.  At 155 lbs, I wouldn't suggest a sail much bigger than 5.5 or 6m2 to learn on.  As he gains experience, he'll need more than one sail.

I think Mark Beauman had a couple things that looked appropriate in the WTB forum.  Maybe he'll chime in here.
