What's the Best Kind of Surfboard for Kids?

In our experience teaching surfing lessons at summer camp, the bigger the surfboard, the better. Longer, wider boards are easier to learn on because kids find their balance on them much easier. (These boards are more difficult to maneuverer and turn, but when you're starting out that's no issue. As kids progress over time, they can use use short, thinner surfboards to improve their skills. We generally use 7.5 or 8 foot soft-top surfboards at Aloha Beach Camp.
