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. A soft flex 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.
