My kid who is 10 yo (11 at the end of August) needs a short board.
He sails in techno class and he can sail short boards (harness, front straps easily and back not so but progressing a lot, fast tack and firsts water starts)
I'm thinking that it's the moment for his own short board and I've several options on the 2nd hand market
1st option, the gecko 98 hrs
2nd option, something more expensive, FW Stubby 2018 95
3rd option. FW Stubby 105 litres. (2018 too)
I'm not considering the 102 ripper because it's too wide (69cm) and he doesn't need so much volume and if he would need something bigger in a precise moment he could sail some of our boards (107 Tabou 3S or Gecko 112)
Thanks a lot
