    of course as it's a trail bike, CRF 150F isn't designed to jump..

    Well if you think about it just a little bit I bet you could figure it out yourself. If he's 8 years old and 6'-0" I suspect he's more than big enough, if he's 24 and 3'-2" then he might not be able to pull it off.

    i 2nd the float hight also pay attention to when it dies when you hit the jump, in the air, after you land... either way it sounds like your bike is flooding, how big of jumps are we talkin here

    Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

    Big enough to reach the pegs sounds like a good start. Big enough to hold the bike up on his own (and pick it up when it falls) might be better.
