In an effort to make outdoor adventures more accessible for families, today iROCKER launches NAUTICAL Kids, the brand’s first kid-friendly paddle board. Inspired by time spent on the water with his own family, iROCKER founder and CEO Steve Elder worked closely with his children to perfect the detail and design of the smaller and lighter boards.

“Drifting through the water on a board is one of our favorite things to do as a family, but we used to find ourselves crammed onto a large board which made it difficult to maneuver on the water,” said Elder. “Our NAUTICAL Kids board solves the problem of having to share a board or put a child on a large board with a too-tall paddle. We believe exploring the outdoors should start early and be accessible to everyone, and having a board specifically sized for petite paddlers is a game-changer for explorers.”

The NAUTICAL Kids boards are designed specifically for those ages eight and up, as well as petite adults. The nine-foot lightweight board, available in four eye-catching colors, comes with a shorter, lighter paddle to make paddle strokes easier on the smaller board.

Although new, the design is constructed with the same durable material and innovative technology the original NAUTICAL boards are renowned for, featuring a 32-inch width for ample stability. The boards are also compatible with iROCKER accessories, and feature a front and rear bungee storage area for gear, as well as a premium wheel option.
