5 years since they were first introduced, Starboard ProKids boards continue to be the only true high-performance kids' board available on the market today.

Not just boards with small stance options, the ProKids are specifically shaped and scaled down in their lengths, volumes, thicknesses and widths to match the dynamics of a sub-55kg sailor. Five models are available, covering the disciplines of racing, waveriding, freeriding and freestyling.

ProKids Quad 69

The new wave board for sub-55 kg riders. With its Quad fin set up, feel more traction, more drive and the ability to generate more speed on the wave face to close tighter turns, ride more vertical and go where you want, when you want. Tested, fine tuned and approved by Connor Baxter.

ProKids Flares 60, 72

Since 2006, these two models raised a whole generation of young windsurfers who now occupy the top places in freestyle. Sarah-Quita, Quincy Offringa and Taty Frans all sailed them before they dominated the PWA:"A ProKids Flare 60 is for kids who weigh 35 to 45kg max, with a height of about 155cm at most. Anything above that makes the Flare 60 too small, and they should have a look at the Flare 72. As long as you're around 45 to 58 kg that board is perfect. Kids from 140 - 165cm are served best with the Flare 72. I sailed it until I was around 60KG, which was the perfect time to start riding the 88" (Sarah-Quita).

ProKids Formula Tufskin

Formula Experience class legal, the ProKids Formula board is the powerful racing machine with the same performance features as a full-size racing board: powerful wide tails combined with a deep racing fin for maximum upwind angle, deep downwind angles and the earliest planing power to win races in all conditions.

ProKids GO

The ProKids GO is a dual purpose board: an accessible progressive freerider for sailors under 55kg, and a fast, exciting and maneuverable freeride board for adults. With its thin shape and extremely low volume, the board is very lively for adults riders. With its wide, stable width, multiple footstrap options and with a centre fin box option, the board has all the features needed to help kids progress and freeride their way to the highest levels.
