The NMD Micro Grom is great for kids: it will give them a lot of float and ensure that their first experiences in the water will be enjoyable.
Core: EPS Core - (This core material is a perfect compromise between quality and price. Lightweight, rigid and durable, EPS boards are designed with both longevity and budget in mind.)
Deck: 8lb IXL- (X-link) decking (A denser, more compact foam that absorbs very little water and is therefore very durable.)
Slick: HD Channeled Slick (A hardened slick material that is durable and fast, yet still super responsive)
Tail: Clipped Crescent Tail (Provides superior control and hold on the wave face while also allowing for ease of rail to rail transitions and release from carves and spins.)
Channels: Graduated Channels (Greatly enhance control and drive, ensuring the rider has maximum command over their board when bottom turning, trimming and transitioning from rail to rail.)
