How young is too young to start your child surfing? Well the answer is easy if they are kicking, crying and screaming to avoid going surfing, well then don’t do it. Once a kid is confident and comfortable in the ocean and wants to give surfing a try then it is the right age. Always start with a soft board that they can manage. Make sure both the top and the bottom of the board are soft and start with some small waves. Even better give Carolina Beaches own Odysea surf and kiteboard school a call!
