Since the beginning of SUP there has been a slow but steady growth in the amount of young kids taking to the water on SUP's. In the last year or two we have seen that slow growth hit the ceiling and explode into the atmosphere!!! Almost every event we go to there are so many groms racing and surfing it is incredible. It shows a bright future for our sport of SUP, and brings some fun and excitement to every event. You should have seen how many kids were participating in Race the Lake of the Sky last weekend! We put together a gallery below of some of the groms participating in Race the Lake of the Sky!
We made our first Grom Boards in 2006, and now in 2014 have a full lineup for the kids.
This year introduced new Raceboards... The Youth RP-Series 12'6" x 24" and 11' x 24" Raceboards.
In the Paddle realm, we have the Kids Sprout Paddle available with a fixed shaft, or an adjustable for the kids who choose to grow out of their toys. We also have an aluminium kids paddle, The "Seal" which has the same adjustability and 6.5" blade as the Sprout. The Seal's Aluminim shaft and Plastic Blade is extremely durable... Digging holes with this paddle is still not encouraged, but it can take a serious beating.
