    Splitboarding is the answer unless Splitbooting is the answer, either way we're going snowboarding because America!

    You might try snowshoes for the little one while one of the adults carries the solid board. When my little man was littler he loved snowshoeing. We never took the boards out though due to lack of another adult for avi safety.

    As far as the board goes, we had really good luck with the Ride “Lowrider” 105. I actually just turned his old deck into a longboard skate deck for pavement surfing in the Summer. I think Gnu also makes a Danny Kass Mini in a 115. I’ve got my boy on a DK Mini BTX 135 right now and the board is super sweet. I wish they made decks like that when I was little.

    Is it for Em?

    We could loan her Sky and Haley’s first snowboard. Its a mini k2 110 I think. It has binders but I’m not sure if we still have boots that small.

    The only condition is that we get it back. Its got sentimental value in our family and it was signed by Stephen Koch too. 🙂

    I got Daisy a pink Burton 110, can’t remember the name. It’s a great learning board cause it’s harder than hell to catch an edge since the edge is rounded. I looked everywhere for used kids boards/boots/bindings but finally caved at bought new last years model on clearance.

    have you looked at any of the Roxy boards? The little girls ones are made for new snowboarders, and will deffinetly be forgiving. They are made by mervin too just like gnu and lib tech so theyre fairly good quality as well. And have really cool graphics!

    Yeah, the Chicklet is a sweet learning board. Daisy road two 3/4 days and never caught an edge. She’s now riding the lift and hooking up turns!!!! She keeps asking to go snowboarding too. Gotta love it. I’d be stoked to sell her board when she out grows it but since she’s the first of three girls there are already dibs on it. :thumpsup:

    Hey Chris- Yep it’s for Em, she wants to learn how to snowboard this season. I’ve already got her hooked on a bunch of shred flicks, she loves My Own Two Feet, Totally Board, and Intrinsic. And she wants to read Mountaineering Freedom of the Hills, and Backcountry Magazine, for bedtime stories. We are slowly getting gear together for her.

    It would be cool to borrow Haley and Skylar’s old board if we don’t find something for her soon, maybe just until after Christmas. Then hopefully we will find something for her on sale. I’m guessing nobody it getting rid of the mini boards, because they are hanging onto them for sentimental reasons. That’s cool!

    Brad- I think the pink Burton board is the Chicklet, it has a 0 degree bevel on the edge and it’s got a convex base, like convex from edge to edge instead of rockered. I’ve been trying to find a used one, but there aren’t many and they seem to go for alot on e-bay auctions.

    I’d like to find a nice forgiving board, so that learning is a good experience, so she loves it and wants to go snowboarding all the time. :thumpsup:

    Look for a Burton Chopper 95, smallest stick I’ve seen. My 16 y.o. won’t part with her’s, too much sentimental value! Her’s is complete with Burton bindings and Airwalk mini freeride boots, size 12.

    Kahru K’booms would be even better than snowshoes.

    I’m also looking for a super mini (ie 80cm), if anyone has one, knows of one.

    THanks,

    I have a pair of kids size 13 boots, which with an extra insole & extra socks might work. They’re a burton boot with separate liner & shell.

    See them HERE
    There is also a size 1 boot.

    Both are new & I’d like to get $30 for them. Will gladly ship on your nickel.

    If anyone still needs small kid boards or just cheap starter boards shoot me a pm.We just had some made,top sheet will differ from bottom(companies).Gotta great deal from a factory that wasn`t working.Must note they are made in china with p-tex and top sheet materails from the U.S.A.Can get some smaller size boots used as well.

    Not trying to earn here just want to share the love.
