Gear Question

Do kids (13 year olds) ever buy smaller...

Posted on

Do kids (13 year olds) ever buy smaller boards so that they can do tricks easier? Will a board break if they get a 110 size for 40-60 lbs. when they are actually 105 lbs?

Responded on

It's ok to have kids on smaller boards so that they gain mobility for learning tricks. However, a board that board may be too small, meaning too squirrelly. Basically, it will make it harder because your child will not have any stability.

you can go a lil' smaller but the Burton Boards are so easy to ride because of the rockered / convex base that there is no need to go smaller.

And, you will not have to worry about it breaking (plus it comes with a warranty)

The other two answerers pretty much said it, I just wanted to add something about boards breaking. One time I took out one of my old burton boards that was a good 20 or so centimeters short and I was waaaaay out of the weight range and I actually tried to break it by doing really leaned back tail presses and stuff and I couldn't snap the thing. Most boards are a lot tougher than they seem.
