My little girl is ready to go solo, but I need some advice on how to get her started. She's 7, weighs about 45 lbs. We are riding a nice wave and she has ridden plenty with me behind the boat. She can kneeboard as well.
I'm ready to get her started solo. I tried a couple pulls at the end of last year but it was just too soon. Do you know if I need something super floaty for her like an IS? Seems like she would be too light to ger her heels to dig in, but maybe I could hold her standing for a start? OR...something a little less bouyant like a Phase 5 where she could possibly dig it in to start and actually get a rail in the water? We have an oogle and a prop on board, so I am thinking of starting off with the oogle for her. Otherwise I am stuck buying something for experimentation.
I guess I am looking for board suggestions and technique suggestions. Any help would be awesome.
