Kid Question: Will this board work?
 
My 4 year old daughter is ready to try the wakeboard this season and I need some advice on boards for her. I have a 119 motive with small bindings, will this board work or should I look for something smaller? She weighs roughly 40lbs. and is almost 4ft tall.

I'd think it would work...but it might be a little on the big side. We have my nephew on a 109 motive.
He started on it at 5y/o. He's now 7 and about 55#'s. The board's looking a bit on the small side now for him so it's almost time to step up to the 119.
Overall, the motive has been a great learning board for him-
Awesome pics! Having kids on the boat enjoying the water makes it all worth it!

Dont think it would be too bad, my lil sis started on a hyperlite elysian 119 when she was 5 and it worked grand. Getting bindings to fit were a problem though.
