Why do the smaller boards have a D-ring on the front of the board?
The D ring is placed at the front of the board because younger paddlers just starting out might need some time to gain stability and understanding of how to paddle. A parent or stronger paddler can connect their board to the kid board and pull the board along. The ring is placed as an extra safety measure – perfect for those windy days on the water.
