Board options for an 11year old, 46kg, who wants to kneeboard

Postby DaddyRockStar » Fri Jan 26, 2018 7:57 pm

Hi All
Relatively new to kneeboarding myself and from 20 years of serious bodyboarding. My 11 year old now wants to kneeboard and mine is really to wide for him to paddle at 23 3/4 inches. What dimensions do you think I should be looking for?
Cheers

You could try one of the soft top back-ball beaters. Might be a good intro option. Not a lot of young kneeboarders, so finding a used kid size board would be a challenge. I've got one that my kids used, but I'm in the US. Are you in Australia?

probably in the range of 50cm for width, maybe a tad more
