Kids Paddle Boards - 2023 Buyers Guide

In this guide we will explain the most important things to consider when purchasing a kids paddle board.

We will discuss topics like board size, paddler size, skill level & intended use.

We will also go over the pros and cons for different types of boards constructions & board pricing.

We will give our advice on which board is best for your child. If you wish to introduce your child to stand-up paddleboarding, this guide is essential.

  • When it comes to board size for kids, it is important to consider the weight and height of the child. Generally speaking, a child should be able to carry the board they are using
  • It is important to consider the paddler's skill level when choosing a board. A more experienced paddler may be able to handle a longer and thinner board. A beginner is better off with a wider and more stable board.
  • When it comes to construction, there are a few different options. Inflatable boards are usually the most popular choice for kids since they are lightweight and easy to transport.
  • They are also the most affordable option. Soft top boards are also a great option for kids, as they are durable and great for learning the basics. Hard top boards are more durable and usually more expensive, but they are great for more experienced paddlers.
  • Finally, factor in pricing. In general, inflatable boards tend to be the most affordable, while hard top boards tend to be the most expensive. It is important to take into account the quality of the board and the type of construction when considering the price.

Choosing The Best Kids Paddle Board For Your Child

  • Paddle Board Size - purchase a kids size paddle board you wont regret it

The number one factor for choosing a kids paddle board is to choose a board that is properly sized for them. A kid cannot effectively use a full-sized adult paddle board, just like they cannot use an adult bicycle. It simply does not work. So when choosing a kids paddle board, make sure to pick one that is the right size for them.

Generally, kids paddle boards are shorter and narrower than adult paddle boards, which makes them easier to maneuver and control. Additionally, look for a board that is lightweight and easy to carry. You want to make sure your child can carry the board without any issues.

Lastly, consider the material of the paddle board. Inflatable paddle boards are more buoyant and comfortable for kids. Hard tops are more durable and can last longer.

Choose a board designed for kids if you want them to enjoy and stay with the sport. Ensure that the board is suitable for their age and skill level.

  •  Paddler Weight - make sure to be within paddler weight limit of your SUP

Be sure the paddler who will be using the board is within the paddler weight range of the board. The weight range for paddlers must be met for them to be able to carry the board, paddle, and maneuver.

Otherwise, it can be difficult for them to go straight and turn. If they are over the rider weight range the board will become more tipsy and difficult to paddle. Choose a board that has the correct paddler weight range so your kid will have the best experience possible.

Consider the size of the board when you are choosing one for your kids. A board that is too long or too short can be difficult to maneuver and not as fun to paddle on. Encourage your children to test out various sizes of boards. This will help them to determine which size works best for them.

The weight of the board is essential. It needs to be taken into account when selecting a board for your children.

Boards that are heavier can be challenging for younger children to move around. It can also be difficult to paddle and steer with these boards. Try to find a board that is lightweight and easy for your kids to carry and paddle.

  • Skill Level - know the skill level beginner or advanced & age range of the paddler who will be using the board

Know the skill level of the paddler who will be using the board. If someone is new to water sports or has never been paddle boarding, an inflatable board may be a good choice. It is the softest and safest material available.

Inflatable boards are also great for kids and adults of all sizes. They are easy to maneuver and transport, and can be used in a variety of conditions.

However, if the paddler is an experienced paddler, a hardboard may be the better choice. Hardboards are more stable and efficient, but they require more skill to use. Choose the board that best suits the paddler's skill level to ensure they get the best experience possible.

If they have experience, you can consider a hardtop board with higher performance. This board is built the same as any adult board, and it is sized for kids.

  • Application - how will you be using the board, lake river or ocean

Think about what kind of paddling will be done with the board most often. 

Consider an all-around style paddle board for general use if you plan to paddle on the lake for fun. This type of board is designed to provide a good experience.

For racing, choose a board with a narrower profile and thin rails. This will help them move faster and more efficiently through the water. Be sure to choose a board that is made for the appropriate skill level - beginner or advanced.

Hardtop boards are more durable and provide increased control when paddling in waves or challenging conditions. Thus, they are the best option. An inflatable board may be the best option for those looking to paddle on flatwater and rivers. Inflatables are more forgiving and easier to maneuver in calmer waters.

If the paddler has advanced skills, they may be interested in SUP racing or SUP surfing. In that case, they should select a board specifically designed for that purpose. Also if space is an issue then an inflatable paddle board is always a great solution.

The Best Size Kids SUP For Children

When choosing a board for your child, remember to select a kids-sized paddle board. It's the same concept as choosing a bike for them - you wouldn't pick an adult-sized one. Choosing the right paddle board is important. Ensure the person who will be using the board is within the board's paddler weight range.

Our boards all have a listed weight range for paddlers. If the paddler's weight is within the range, the board will be stable and buoyant enough for them. It is important for a child to have a paddle board that is the right size for them. An adult board is too big and hard to manage in and out of the water.

A paddler needs to be the right weight capacity. If they are under the weight range of a board, they will struggle to paddle, steer, and maneuver. This is especially true when entering and exiting the water. 

If a paddler is over the weight range of a board, the board will become 'tipsy'. This makes it more difficult to keep your balance.

Ensure your child has a board that fits them correctly. This increases the likelihood that they will remain passionate about paddleboarding. It can become a lifelong hobby.

Having the right sized board is essential for the safety of your child and their comfort when paddleboarding. When their board is the right size, they have the best chance to learn the basics of paddleboarding and have fun. The right sized board will be stable, easy to maneuver and help your child to develop their paddling skills.

Choose a board that is the correct size for your child. Encourage your children to get out on the water and enjoy the outdoors. Before you purchase a board, check that the design is suited to your child's age and skill level.

A board that is too small is not stable enough for your child. Conversely, a board that is too big is hard to control and move. It’s important to make sure that your child’s paddleboarding experience is enjoyable and safe. With the right sized board, your child will be able to maximize their paddleboarding abilities and further explore the wonderful sport.

Safety Tips For Paddleboarding With Kids

  • #1 THE GOLDEN RULE - wear a pfd life jacket at all time

Everyone should be a strong swimmer and everyone MUST wear a life jacket and leash at ALL TIMES. This is the most important rule.

No matter the weather or how enjoyable the day is, it is essential to wear a life jacket and leash. This is true in all circumstances. The life jacket will ensure your buoyancy in any situation. The leash will keep you connected to your board if you fall off.

  • #2 THE BUDDY SYSTEM - always paddle with an adult & never let kids paddle alone

Never paddle alone and especially NEVER EVER EVER let your kids paddle's more fun paddling together anyway. Know your skill level and the skill level of everyone you are paddling with.

If there are beginners in the group then stay conservative with how far you paddle. You are the most experienced person in the group. It is your responsibility to decide when and where to go.

Additionally, you must look after the less experienced paddlers. Always paddle with a buddy.

  • #3 WEATHER - check the weather forecast and know your surroundings

"Know before you go" is something you should always say to yourself before you go for a paddle. Always check the weather first and never go if there is any chance of bad weather especially wind or lightning. It is always best for kids to go out in calm, flat water conditions.

This will ensure they have a positive experience. Never paddle with kids in windy, choppy, or less than perfect conditions. Know before you go.

  • #4 CLOTHING - be prepared for cold or warm water and air

Be sure to wear the appropriate clothing for the situation. At certain lakes, on even a hot summer day, the water temperature remains chilly.

Some children choose to wear a wetsuit or water shoes to stay warm. Likewise, in warm water climates you may need to wear less clothing in order to stay cool and not overheat.

Bring sunscreen and water when paddling with children. It is important to make sure that they are dressed correctly for the conditions.

For example, when paddling in cold climates, it is important to bring a wetsuit or water shoes to keep children warm.

In warmer climates, less clothing may be necessary to prevent children from overheating. In addition, sunscreen and plenty of water should be brought along to protect against the elements and keep children hydrated.

Ultimately, by following these tips, you will ensure that your children have a positive and enjoyable paddling experience.

  • #5 PHONE - always have a way to communicate

Bring a phone in a dry bag. Let someone know your destination and estimated time of return. Having a phone can be very helpful for a lot of situations...just don't check your email on it!

Cell phones are great for any type of emergency. They are also good for taking pictures and videos to remember the fun. Of course, they are the kid favorite for ordering pizza from the water.

Now that you have all the safety boxes checked just relax and have a great time with the ones you love. Take a break from reality and be present with your children. They will be glad you did. We look forward to seeing you on the water.

4 Tips On How To Take Your Child Paddle Boarding For Their First Time

  • Tip #1 - Build Experience In The Water - be a good swimmer

Before taking your child paddle boarding, we strongly recommend they have prior experience and are comfortable in the water. Additionally, they should be strong swimmers. Take things slow.

If you skip this step, you could scare the kids or affect their experience. We want our kids to enjoy themselves and have a good time, so they want to do it again. Don't just throw them into paddle boarding. Get them comfortable in the water first.

Take them canoeing or kayaking so they can get used to being out on the water. This will prevent sensory overload the first time they try paddle boarding.

Kids should be good swimmers before trying paddleboarding. This will help them to react quickly if they fall off the board.

Make sure they wear a life jacket, no matter how confident they are in the water, and never leave them unsupervised. Have them practice paddling on land before you take them out, so they get the hang of it. Finally, be sure to bring along plenty of water, sunscreen, and snacks so they can stay energized and hydrated.

  • Tip #2 - Tandem Paddling - parent & child paddling together on the same board

Take your kids paddle boarding tandem. Have them sit on the front of your paddle board. You provide the paddle power.

You can begin this activity at almost any age, even two years old. However, take responsibility and always make sure they wear a life jacket.

Never force them to do something they are uncomfortable with. Ask them how they are feeling regularly.

Inform them of all your actions. Speak to them in a soothing and reassuring manner. Let them know they are secure with you.

When your child is between 4 and 7 years old, you can take them on a board with you. At first, they should stand without a paddle, with their back against your body. This way, you can do the balancing while they stand.

Your child is ready to stand in the front of the board while it's moving. Give them a paddle, and you can both paddle together. It will be a thrilling experience for both of you!

  • Tip #3 - Take a lesson - when kids learn how to paddle board a lesson is a good idea

If you have experience in paddle boarding and water sports, you may not need to teach your child yourself. If you lack experience with the water or paddle boarding, it is wise to book a lesson.

A professional paddle board instructor will provide you with the necessary safety knowledge. They will also teach you the techniques needed to quickly improve your skills. Taking a lesson is a great idea for anyone interested in learning a new action sport. The instructor will also be able to provide feedback on your progress and give tips on how to improve.

They can assist your child with paddle boarding. This ensures they are safe and having a good time.

Taking a lesson is a great way to begin paddle boarding. You and your child can have a positive experience by taking a paddle board lesson. The instructor can also provide advice on the best type of paddle board for you and your child. They can recommend the best boards for your size, skill level, and body composition.

They can also provide you with information on the best places to paddle board in your area. With their help, you can find the perfect spot to enjoy your new sport.

  • Tip #4 - Balance - have your child work on stability & balance on their kids SUP

The first few attempts of standing up on a paddle board can be difficult. You should walk alongside them waist deep in the water. This allows you to keep a hand on the board and help them keep their balance. This will help them stand up on their own for the first time.

This is beneficial in more ways than one: it helps with balance and makes them feel safe and confident. Once they feel secure, they'll want you to let go of the board so they can do it on their own.

Now, grab your own board and catch up with them. Soon, you'll be paddling together! See you on the water!

Now you have some easy ways to get your child prepared for their first time paddle boarding. Get out there and make it happen! We look forward to seeing you out on the water.

Encourage your child to practice on dry land first. Have them stand on the board while you hold it steady. Make sure their feet are spread out, next to each other with the handle in between their feet.

This will help them find balance and make it easier to stand up. Once they’re comfortable standing, you can have them practice paddling while you hold the board. This will help them get used to the movements and gain confidence in their paddling.

What Age Can Kids Start Paddle Boarding an iSUP

Paddlers with a lot of experience often take children as young as four years old on a paddle board. This is not an uncommon practice. It can be a great tool to induce nap-time. Haha!  

Children between 4 and 7 years old can learn how to stand up on a paddle board. This is an age when they can do this on their own.

Learning to paddle board is a process that takes time. No matter your kids' age, they can become comfortable on the board.  

You want your kids to have a good time. Therefore, do not push them. Otherwise, they may not enjoy the sport and may not continue. So start slow.  

Before allowing them to paddle on their own board, they should have some sort of prior water experience. This could be tandem paddle boarding on the front of the board with you, or becoming a strong swimmer. These experiences will help them feel comfortable on the water. 

Taking a paddle board lesson can be beneficial. A professional SUP instructor can provide insights into the finer details of paddling and safety.

Always take your kids paddling in perfect flat water conditions. Never take them out when it is windy, cold, or any other less-than-ideal conditions. Trust us, this will help make sure your kids stick with the sport, enjoy it, and always have a good experience.  

Young kids should be given some special tips when paddle-boarding. The first couple of times, they should be accompanied in the water, waist deep. This way, you can help them with balance and make them feel safe.

You now have a good idea for when your child can begin paddle boarding. We look forward to seeing you out on the water!

Kids Inflatable iSUP or Hardtop Paddle Board For Kids

There are several important factors to consider when making a decision. Out buying guide will help you with that decision.

The most important one is the ability level of the person who is going to be paddling the board. If the person is a first-timer or beginner paddle boarder, we highly recommend a Kids inflatable SUP. They are designed to be safer, more stable and user-friendly.

Inflatable paddle boards are easier to carry for smaller children.

For more experienced paddlers, a hardtop paddle board may be a better option. Hardtop boards are more rigid. They provide better tracking and speed.

This makes them great for those who want a more challenging ride. Additionally, hardtop boards tend to last longer and are more resistant to wear and tear. No matter which board you choose, you can be sure that your child will have a great experience on the water.

Before purchasing your paddle board, you should also consider the type of water your child will be paddling in. If they will be paddling in shallow or calm waters, an inflatable board is a great choice. Paddling in more challenging conditions requires a different type of board. A hardtop board may be a better fit.

Be sure to also consider the size and weight of the board when making your purchase. Heavier boards may be more difficult to maneuver, while lighter boards may be easier to control.

For more advanced or teen paddlers with good athletic ability and balance, a kids hardtop paddle board can be considered. This type of board offers slightly higher performance.

Transporting your board to the water is another major factor to consider. Do you have roof racks on your vehicle?

If you need to transport your board to the water, a kids inflatable paddle board will be ideal. You may not have roof racks, and there may be camping gear and beach toys taking up space in the car.

If your board does not need to be transported to the water or if you do have roof racks then you will have the option to choose a hardtop paddle board.

#2 Choose the Right Board - The board you choose should be appropriate for your child's size and weight. A board that is too large can be difficult to maneuver and can lead to a dangerous situation. A board that is too small can limit your child's ability to have fun and explore. Make sure to get a board that is the right size and weight for your child.

#3 Get the Right Gear - Make sure your child is dressed properly. The right clothing will keep them warm and comfortable. The right gear will also help keep them safe. A wet suit, sunglasses, and a hat are all important pieces of gear to protect your child from the elements.

#4 Follow the Rules - Make sure your child understands the rules of the water. It's important to follow certain rules when out on the water. Don't venture too far from the shore.

Don't go too fast. And avoid other boats. Make sure your child understands these rules and follows them at all times.
