Starsurfer
 
Do you think that the Starsurfer S would be a good board to teach a 10 and an 8 year on?

I am interested in this board because it would also be a great board for my wife, who current uses an old Electric Rock. I could also use it as a light wind (5.5 to 6.0) bump and jump/wave board.

Is there enough flotation for kids under 90 lbs?

Thanks


Peter

Hi Peter,
It will take some "adjusting" for your kids to get really stable on the Starsurer S, but since they are kids. they should adapt very quickly.
At < 90 lbs, I&#39;m sure they can progress, if you get them a good powerful rig that they can plane with.
The rig has to be very light in weight or they won&#39;t like uphauling it on the narrower and more "tippy" Starsurfer S.
You wife should be right at home on this board after sailing the Astro Rock.
Hope this helps,
&#92;
