K2 Vandal Youth Snowboard · 2022

From $159.95

Ideal for the young grom who wants to get better in the park and have a high-quality, freestyle-focused deck to take it to the next level. Soft 3/10 flex and rocker in the tip and tail make it ideal for jibbing and park playfulness. Enough capability for floating in deeper snow and cruising all-mountain, but it shines in freestyle.

The pint size version of the Merc for the groms, a little softer mid flex and freestyle camrock makes things super forgiving and easy to lock down turns whether they're riding their natural stance or dialing in their switch riding with it's true twin shape. Has 3D Sidekick at the wider points of the board making it a little easier to rip through powder on those deep days, that paired up with a Freestyle Camrock profile giving a flat section in between the inserts and rocker to the nose and tail makes this great for entry level to intermediate riders looking to dial things in or just want a really park friendly board.

A smaller version of the full size Merc dubbed the Micron Merc. True twin with a soft flex, this board will allow you to progress and navigate any new terrain and skills you're looking to learn, including park and switch. It features the Freestyle Camrock profile with flat between the feet for stability and rocker underfoot to tip and tail to make your turns easier and with fewer edge catches. 3D Sidekick technology helps you float in powder.

The Chicklet is an awesome board to learn on, with Burton quality that will last. The flat profile and catch-free design makes learning turns easier, and the twin shape means it rides and feels the same both ways.

The twin shape is ideal for helping them figure out which foot they like to lead on. Beveled edges make it almost impossible for them to catch an edge on too!

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.
