Default RE: Best Board for Young Beginner

Roger,

Thanks for your response. I appreciate that you responded while you are between trips and don't have much time. I am leaning towards the Rio because I assume that although you mention that the Go 139 could be a good short board it might be better to go for a more "lively" junior short board. The reason is that I assume it won't be too easy for him to jibe /gibe with a board width like the Go due to his weight - or am I off the mark (I recognise there is a Kids Go with 100l and width of 76cm available)?

One other, unrelated question. Would it make more sense to learn using the footstraps before using a harness, or should it be the other way around. Or does it not matter at all?

Thomas
