K2 Kandi Youth Snowboard · 2022
Softer flex to make it easier for a beginner and allows for progression. Twin shaped profile for versatility and a rocker under the feet to help make turning easier.
K2 Mini Turbo Snowboard · 2021
This is a twin tip, soft flex, and tough construction. The difference here is that it is a rocker (banana) shape vs. flat. This will make it even easer to learn to turn on, yet may feel a tiny bit less stability when going fast.
Progression and building confidence in young riders!
Salomon Grail Snowboard · 2022
Salomon's top-selling lil grom entry-level board. Twin-shaped, soft flexing, featuring Salomon's Bowl Skate Base made for easy turning with bite-free edges to reduce catching an edge. All-mountain board, great for exploring the whole resort with a smile on your lil ones face!
K2 Mini Turbo Youth Snowboard · 2022
A lightweight core with a forgiving flex and a "catch-free" rocker allows a rider to really get on edge without the stress of those frontside or backside whippers. Great board for a beginner but can be taken up a notch as the young rider progresses.

Twin shaped board, has the same nose and tail shape and size. Flat to rocker profile makes turning really easy and great to learn on. Soft flexing and playful. A nice board to get your first turns and begin loving the stoke of snowboarding!
Flat cambered board for a friendly ride and all-mountain performance. A shape that provides the best combo of edge hold and forgiveness in turns. The twin shape means you can ride in either direction.
Salomon Grace Snowboard · 2022
This one is a little beveled to keep those edges up for you so you don't have to warry about catching. Flay all the way so itll hold up as you get better. Great beginner progression board.
Head JR. Rowdy Snowboard · 2021
The Head Jr. Rowdy is the perfect option for a less expensive board to get a new rider out on the mountain! Soft and forgiving, this board is ideal for the progressing rider!
Beginner youth looking for a smooth board easy to learn on! Rocker shape is playful and very great for learning how to turn and carve.
K2 Lil KAT Youth Snowboard · 2022
Super playful design with a soft flex and catch-free rocker design brings the contact points out of the snow for easier linking of turns. This is a board for the beginner rider with a flat base and rocker profile on the tip and tail to reduce catching edges.

Great option for a first board that is nice and forgiving and easy to ride. It may not carve as well as the other two options when they get better, but a good starting point for the beginners.
Dreamscape by Decathlon Bullwhip 300 Evo Snowboard · 2021
Slight camber for good edge hold and turning. Twin shape to allow for exploring different directions of riding whether it's regular or goofy. Stance is slightly set back to make it the most comfortable and easy riding in regular stance.
