This board kicks ass when it comes to teaching your little one how to ride. The edges are practically impossible to catch, it's reverse camber which means it's way easy for my 5-year-old to control on the mountain, and it's super flexible meaning it's forgiving when she hits some challenging terrain. We were on the mountain half a day before she was going off the lifts... the only thing i will say is that the sizing chart is a bit misleading. My daughter is just under 4 feet tall and about 50 pounds and the 100cm was perfect for her (and will be next year too!).
