Thanks guys - I know someone posted a link to a sale Hyperlite 119 with kids bindings on amazon the other day. I snapped off and ordered one, and got a cancellation order today (out of stock). If anyone sees a good clearance sales on a 119 with bindings, please shout it out on this thread :-)

My kids started on a 125 and they would have been fine on a 130 also.

your probably not going to find any under $300 this time of year, most stores have already clearanced off all the deals...
you could prolly find a deal on just a blank board and find bindings elsewhere...

Not to thread jack, but are there any binding preferences that make it easier for them to get their feet in and out?

Evo outlet has good packages. I got the state 125 and remix for my 8yr old last fall for $220. Just got to watch for it.

Does he get them on and off easily? Worried that if it is too much trouble or doesn't hold their feet well they will give up trying to learn.

I have a Hyperlite Motive 109 for my 5 year old. The last couple years he's been riding on his stomach on a knee board behind the boat so he was comfortable back there and not afraid of wiping out. We started this spring with drills in the grass with board on and rope, knees bent, arm straight, stand up. In the water for the first few times I sat in lake with him and helped him pop up by pushing him out; after a couple tries he's able to get up now on his own. We use about 60' of rope for him with a nice even pull. We started off pulling slowly but we found it much better to be more aggressive on the pull.

He rides fairly well and with the X25 he needs to stay between the wake.

Will use the same technique to get my 4 year old up next year. They both play hockey and skate 6 days a week all year except 2 months of summer so they have developed strong legs and good balance which had helped the quick progression as well I'm sure.
