Smile kode 86/94 as a beginner board ?!

this is the deal: im thinking of getting a 2009/10 starboard kode 86 or 94 for next summer in a few months and i'm wondering if my brother will be able 2 use is as a beginner board. he's 26 kilos and 9 years old.when i'm getting my board and rig, he might get a 1.5 sail. i know the kode is a more advanced board but because of his small weight, i think he'll be able 2 use it as his beginner board. he has very little expierience, and i'm also wondering if he can use an iDO on it. just asking, cos it's such a small sail... anyway, if you have any suggestions on a rig or want more info, check out my other thread/post "which board and rig?" which should be below this one

It will work great. I've had a bunch of more or less dedicated beginners boards, but my son (who is still pretty much a beginner and of similar size/age) prefers my Quad 76 and you can in fact see how much easier it is for him to get the small board moving compared to the big ones. Of course, big wide ones make balancing easier, but I reckon that's not a big problem for a kid.

I don't know about the iDO though. But again, with a dedicated kids rig (my son use the Hot Sails Maui Kids superfreak 1.6) uphauling in fact looks amazingly easy for the kids: I'd say 10 times easier than for a grown up to uphaul a 5.0.

They also say that it's for sails up to 5.0, so a 1.5 still might work ^^
