What's Included In A Waterkids Kids Inflatable Paddle Board Package?
Our Waterkids kids inflatable SUP packages come with absolutely everything to get your child out on the water including the board, adjustable paddle, leash, board bag and pump!
Our inflatable paddle boards for kids are just as good as any adult board and are constructed with extra durable pvc that is highly damage resistant so you won't have to worry about it being scratched or causing damage while being transported to or from the lake by your little grom.
An inflatable kids paddle board is softer than a hard top paddle board which makes it safer and more resistant to wear and tear.
Our kids inflatable stand up paddle boards also have a soft traction pad that provides a very comfortable standing area for your child as well as a high quality paddling experience.
Our boards are built with a centered easy-carry handle which makes it very simple for any little shredder to carry on their own which teaches a child how to take care of and handle their own equipment.
Our inflatable kids paddle boards have a high pressure valve so you can inflate your board to the same psi as an adult paddle board and make it super rigid so it is just as good to paddle as a regular hardtop paddle board.
As an added bonus, all of our boards come with an adjustable paddle, leash, pump and travel bag that makes transportation and storage a breeze.
Not all kids inflatable paddle boards are created equal...it is possible to find a cheaper product but you can be sure that it will soon fall apart at the seams and lose its rigidity and not too long after it will no longer be usable while your Waterkids inflatable paddle board will be around for a long time.
Our kids paddle boards are built to the same high quality as any adult paddle board and you can rest easy knowing that your Waterkids kids paddle board is not only affordable but it is also the highest quality kids equipment in the industry.
Our kids inflatable paddle board packages come with everything your child needs to get out on the water including board, adjustable kids size paddle, ankle leash, pump & board bag. Everything we make has been specifically designed for kids so you can be sure all of our equipment will be sized perfectly and function properly for your child
What Size Kids SUP Is Best For My Child?
When deciding what board to get for your child keep in mind that you would be best to choose a kids size paddle board, it is no different than if you were deciding on a bike for them...you wouldn't choose an adult size bike. So when choosing a paddle board it is very important to make sure that the person who is going to be using the board is within the 'paddler weight range' of the board.
All of our boards have a paddler weight range listed and as long as thepaddler is within that range the board will be perfectly stable and buoyant enough for them. This is why it is important for a child to have a paddle board that is properly sized for them, an adult board is far too big and difficult to handle both on and off the water. If a paddler is under the weight range of a board then it will be difficult for them to paddle, steer, and maneuver in and out of the water. And if a paddler is over the weight range of a board then the board will begin to become 'tipsy' and it will be more difficult to keep your balance.
Be sure that your child has a board that is properly sized for them and you have a much bigger chance that they stick with the sport and develop a lifelong love for paddleboarding.
What Age Can My Child Start Paddle Boarding?
It's not uncommon to take children as young as 2 years old paddle boarding for the first time on the front of a paddle board, and if you do so you will probably soon discover the added bonus of how good of a tool it is to induce nap-time, haha.
Usually when a child is between 4 & 7 years of age is when they can begin to learn how to stand up on a paddle board on their own.
Learning how to paddle board is a progression that evolves over time and no matter what age your kids are they can get used to being on a board.
You always want your kids to have a good time, so please never EVER push them or they may end up not having a good time or enjoying the sport and maybe not even stick with it. So start slow.
Before you ever let them paddle on their own board they should already have some sort of pre-paddleboarding water experience to get them comfortable on the water like tandem paddle boarding on the front of the board with you and becoming a strong swimmer.
It's also never a bad idea to take a paddle board lesson so a professional SUP instructor can show you in person all of the finer details of paddling and safety.
ALWAYS take your kids paddling in perfect flat water conditions, never ever ever take them out when it is windy, cold or any other less-than ideal conditions...trust us, this will help to make sure your kids stick with the sport, enjoys it and always has a good experience.
Another tip for young kids is the first couple times you take them paddle boarding just walk in the water waist deep next to their board so you can help them with balance and also so they can feel comfortable and safe that you are right there next to them.
Now that you have a good idea for when your grom can start paddle boarding...we'll see you out on the water!
Why Is An Inflatable Paddle Board Good For Kids, Beginners, Children & Youth Size Paddlers?
Inflatable paddle boards for kids and beginners are ideal because they are safe, very durable and user friendly for beginners.
They are safe because the material is soft enough so when your little shredder takes the inevitable wipe out you won't have anything to worry about. They are also safe out of the water and when your grom is carrying the board you won't have to think about them bumping the board into a car or a person on the way to the beach.
They are super durable because their construction is made of high grade ultra durable pvc which is extra resistant to scratches and tears and perfect for kids who are just learning how to carry a paddle board and keep it in good condition.
They are super user friendly for a few reasons...Kids inflatable paddle boards make storage and transportation very easy. They come with a travel bag so they are very easy to transport and carry while taking up very little room for storage and you don't need a roof rack to get them to wherever you are paddling...And as a mega bonus, they come with absolutely everything you need to go paddleboarding including the board, adjustable paddle for them to grow in to, ankle leash, board bag and a pump.
They only take a few minutes to inflate while deflating in just seconds...And most importantly, your child can be in charge of doing everything themselves including inflating the board, carrying it to the beach and paddling it which will help develop new skills, confidence, strength and independence.
Should You Buy An Inflatable SUP or Kids Hardtop Paddle Board For Your Child?
There are a few factors that play into this decision, the first and most important to consider is the ability level of the person who is going to be paddling the board...if they are a first timer or beginner paddle boarder then we highly recommend a Kids inflatable SUP because they are made to be much more safe, stable and user friendly.
If the board is for a more advanced or teen paddler with good athletic ability and balance then you can start thinking about a kids hardtop paddle board that has slightly higher performance.
The other major factor is if your board will need to be transported to the water and if you have roof racks or not on your vehicle. If you need to transport your board to the water, don't have roof racks and maybe even have a bunch of other camping gear and beach toys taking up space in the car...then a kids inflatable paddle board will probably be an ideal bet for the situation.
Whereas, 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 kids hardtop paddle board.
Are Your Paddle Boards Good For Children, Groms, Juniors, Teens, Boys, Girls & Youth Paddlers Of All Ages?
YES!...Our paddle boards for kids can be used by anyone within the 'paddler weight range' of the board including boys, girls, juniors, teens and even lightweight adults can use our boards.
Everything we make has been specifically designed for youth paddlers so just check out the 'specs' below each board to make sure your grom is within the 'paddler weight range' and you can be sure that our professional board shapers and designers made sure to rate the boards for a perfect paddling experience and they will be perfectly stable and balanced for anyone within the weight range.
Some other companies will say their boards are for a much wider weight weight range to try and boost sales when in reality if you are at the top end of that weight range then you will have a bad user experience because the board lacks the stability and buoyancy needed to have a good time...we do not do that!
All of our boards are rated to have a perfectly functional 'paddler weight range' for a perfect user experience all the way to the top end of the weight range.
When you purchase a Watkids Kids SUP you can be confident that it will be properly rated and sized by professionals for your little shredder.
Kids Paddle Boards
Our Kids size paddle boards are constructed to the same high quality as any adult paddle board, they are just sized down so they are perfectly functional for youth sized paddlers.
A child trying to SUP on an adult size paddle board is no different than a kid trying to ride an adult size bike...it doesn't really work because the board is too big and cumbersome making it difficult to maneuver and come away with a good experience.
If your child has a kids size paddle board they will have a much better time and quality experience because the kids SUP was actually built for a paddler their size and it will be much easier for them to handle, maneuver and paddle on their own and will provide them with fun times and allow them to progress their stand up paddle boarding with a much higher chance that they will stick with the sport through adulthood and then pass it on to their own kids.
