My son wants a board for Christmas.
He is currently riding an "el cheapo" tourist sand skimming board, you guys know the kind.
He needs one that will be great for the sand, but begin to transition him to deeper water.
I've done research on grom boards, but an experienced opinion is better than sales propaganda.
He is almost 9 yrs old and 60 lbs.
What is a decent board for him, not too expensive?
What did some of you ride at that age?
