re Choosing a board for children
From an amazing experience yesterday...
A good friend decided to finally get his kids (daughters 11 and 7, 4'11" and 4' even). He had them on a Starsurfer with a Hotsails 2.1. The girls learned very quickly, had a great time, and appear to be bitten. The board is small enough that either girl could turn the thing by repositioning the rig (the older girl was tacking inside of five minutes). They had none of the "barge" issues that I've run into in informal instruction of kids on adult boards of any size. The board was outstanding.
It was a fantastic day...very rewarding. I have a blog entry about it here if anyone is interested:
