The future is looking bright
Nitro knows better than shrinking an adult board, slapping some goofy graphics on it, and expecting it work for still-growing groms. Thanks to a forgiving youth-specific flex and stable, catch-free flat profile, the Kids' Ripper Snowboard is fully equipped to get your kid on the fast track to a life of shredding. A flat profile gives it a stable feel and makes it harder to catch an edge, and the twin shape means it can be ridden either way equally well. Nitro's All-Terrain Youth flex (that means soft) and a radial sidecut makes it easy to maneuver for carves that feel almost effortless. Plus, the Premium Extruded FH base is easy to repair if he or she dings it up in the park.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I recently purchased the Ripper 86cm board for my 2 year old daughter to get her started, and just for an excuse to go snowboarding and hang out in the snow with my daughter. The Ripper has been great, especially together with the Nitro DIY bindings. The small size makes it easy, and the graphics are sick, she loves them. The flex of the board is perfect especially for such a small girl, its easy for her to lean back and forward, with out catching an edge.
