My 13 year old son has been using a Wilderness Systems Tsunami SP for the last 3 to 4 years. Bulkheads and decklines give it the same safety feaures as an adult boat. Tracks straight , edges with confidence.
Only downside is the factory kneebraces. They sit so low on the coaming that he could never get his knees under them. I heavily modified them to sit higher on the upper cockpit rim, and now he can engage his knees properly. His bracing and rolling really took off after that.
Overall, highly recommended.
