hi, i had the same dilema with my two sons, i bought them a second hand foamie and told them when they can catcth waves and stand up i would buy them a secondhand custom board each and when they can surf full on i bought them new custom boards. the idea i had was twofold, first i didnt want to spend a lot of money for it to be wasted and also a reward for sticking with it.did it work? i am now 56 and still surfing with both my sons, and my grandson is getting a foamie for xmas. cant wait for the day that three genarations ride the same wave, so go cheap but offer a reward for sticking at it. it worked for me
