Kids from the age of 6 years can usually paddle on their own board. Most adult boards however are too bukly / heavy and hard to paddle/turn for the youngstars so we have some smaller boards and paddles especially for kids and teenagers.
SUP USA White Tiger 10’6 Paddleboard for teenagers for rent on St. John
this board is built to last; made with 1.5lb EPS Foam Cores then wrapped with Epoxy and Fiberglass and then has an ABS plastic shell wrapped around it. Different from the other boards that are all pretty fragile, this one is almost indestructible. It is a the board of choice if you are renting a villa with a bit of a rocky water entrance (like Virinian Garden or Beach Villa in Great Cruz Bay) or if you just want your teenagers to play around with the board unattended without having to worry about dings. If you are looking for something sportier, the Falcon Air Inflatable Raceboard also is great for rocky places.
