Softboards are the perfect choice for kids! We've kept them in mind when developing our range and have a number of suitable options for any grommets first board.
We get asked a lot of questions about sizing and which boards are most suitable, so we thought we'd put together a quick guide.
Firstly, here's a couple of reason's why a softboard is a good choice in the first place:
While we give sizing suggestions on a lot of our boards, we do bend the rules slightly for kids.
As they are pretty agile & often light for their size, some boards which we do not recommend for Beginner Adults, are ideal for kids.
These boards have a bit less volume so are easier for the kids to paddle and control once they start to improve.
For each of these size suggestions, we'd recommend:
Pop Stick Model if they / you are confident they will pick surfing up quick.
Chop Stick Model if their confidence / co-ordination is about average.
Koolite Model to make the first steps of surfing as easy as possible.
