The mini-shred movement is all about getting youngsters on the slopes as soon as they are ready. There had previously been talk about it not being good for children’s development as their bones and muscles are still developing at such an early age, but this has now been widely disproved and replaced with the facts that children can start at any age on a board, as long as they tell you that they’re ready.
Burton are pioneering the way with new tech and accessories that can help your little ones get on that board earlier. Burton was one of the first companies offering a full line of snowboard products for kids. They have made it easier learn by adding features like easy ride edges to their boards, so kids do not catch their edges so easy. They have taken it a step further, developing new products, teaching methods, and specialized parks built to be a fun and easy learning environment.
