    Photo courtesy Burton SnowboardsBurton: Using its team of younger testers, Burton has revamped the Punch series to deliver all-around freestyle performance for smaller riders. These are not scaled-down versions of adult boards. The flex, shape and even graphics are all designed by and for younger riders. Versatile, the Punch goes from park to pipe to all-mountain freeriding, delivering advanced freestyle performance for smaller, lighter riders. Included in the line is the Shaun White (who is 14) signature model, the Punch 143.

    When the snow melts at the end of the season, younger riders trade their snowboards for skateboards. For these riders, the skate-shoe influence of the Freestyle Youth and the Freestyle Youth SI is the perfect boot for taking skate tricks onto snow. Burton's Command SI offers the step-in system, easing the learning process while giving full soft-system, freestyle performance.

    K2 Snowboards: K2 has come up with two boards to accommodate kids of all riding abilities. The Mighty Eldo is made for the little tykes getting started and the Mini Zep is for the groms that are already rippin'. The Mighty Eldo has a twintip design and softer flex for the kids who are bouncing from mogul to mogul. Like its adult counterpart the Zeppelin, the Mini Zep freestyle board has a progressive sidecut.

    The Striker Jr. and the Sector Jr. are K2's answer to dream boots for kids: warm and comfortable with a custom fit (both feature a removable liner that is heat-moldable). The Sector Jr. is easy to lace with a waterproof construction and also features an adjustable footbed system that allows the boot to grow up to two full sizes. The Striker Jr. can be used with strap bindings and the Sector Jr. is compatible with K2's step-in Clicker binding.

    The K2 V-2 Plasma binding is the perfect match with the Striker Jr. With kids in mind, K2 made proportionally smaller highbacks for heelside support and comfortable, molded, quick-adjust foam straps with user friendly, lift-release ratchet buckles. The bindings feature a 3-point strap system and adjustable forward lean.

    Lamar: Lamar introduces three junior board models. The Super-X, Commando and Primary boards all feature full, wood-core construction and unique graphic designs. Each board is designed and tuned specifically for junior riders, providing a responsive and controlled riding experience.

    The Lamar MX1 bindings feature an atomically contoured baseplate and highback, providing maximum control, comfort and fit. The MX1 is size scaled and flex tuned specifically for junior riders and is designed to be simple and easy to use without sacrificing fit or performance.

    The versatile AKA Jr. boot has been redesigned and restyled. A built-in liner and multi directional rubber outer sole provide a controlled and comfortable fit. The AKA features aggressive skate styling.

    Limited: Limited offers the new Defender and Element boards. Both feature wood core construction and are built to give the young rider total control.

    Limited's LT1 strap binding features a baseplate and highback shaped to fit young feet and calves. The Focus Jr. boot is redesigned and restyled and sports a built-in liner and multi directional rubber outer sole.

    Photo courtesy RIDE SnowboardsRide: The Lowride is built for smaller children, designed to be fun to ride and easy to control. Complementing the Lowride is the Preston LS Micro binding. The Preston base is anatomically shaped from aircraft-grade aluminum for extra stability and support. Cushy "bubble ankle pads" provide relief to the instep for all-day comfort.

    The Base Boot is a mix of performance and flexibility. Forward and lateral flex provide enough support to take first-timers and intermediates all over the mountain. The anatomically shaped tongue features latex padding that is easy on youngsters' shins.

    Salomon: Salomon gets on board with the Team series of snowboards for kids. Team series boards are built with an aspen wood core and a P-Tex 900 graphite base.

    Sims: This year's kids boards have been renamed. The FSR 250 stands for freestyle/freeride, and is designed to give the younger rider the freedom to ride the whole mountain with confidence. Sims' junior binding was redesigned with a sturdier nylon baseplate and the addition of aluminum, self-ratchet buckles. New for Sims this winter are boots, with junior boots designated the 400 Series, geared to the entry-level rider.
