    I have seen some groms around here riding a board called "The Beater" it's a longer version of a boogie board with a single fin; its also all foam just like a soft board. Saw one at a local shop here for 149$ which is cheaper than what Ive seen online.
    I rode one a couple of times this past summer and it was a lot of fun.

    the beater will most likely turn him off from surfing, just because its so unstable. i guess you could say its a beginner board because its so cheap, but if you know you're kid is going to be into it id avoid one of these

    ron jon always has a few cheaper boards especially during sales. i think of them as the perfect beginner board because they're not too expensive, and the funboards have great stability. ive had one for about 8 or 9 years and its held up great without any problems

    That's an interesting statement especialy when I said the kids I saw were ridding them (that means they were standing up) 4 to be exact.

    thanks for the advice guys. probably looking at getting him a 6'-7' funboard/fish for now. have to see what i can find a deal on before xmas. nothing like finding a board under the tree. i was also checking out the beater and might get one but it would be more for just messing around than anything else.
