My Grandson has learned how to skateboard (is that the right term, or is it ride a skateboard?), and I bought him a real cheap one to start with. We had some accidents when he started, but nothing serious, just a cut across the bridge of his nose when he tried to flip it like he'd seen done. You know, they step on the back of the skateboard real quick and it flips up into their hands miraculously? Well, his flipped all right, but hit him in the nose!! He's lucky it was only cut and not broken.
Now that he is so much better at it, not the flipping, but the riding, I am thinking about getting him a custom skateboard. He would like a design that is really cool, like a skull or a spider or a shark. He likes anything like that. I saw the one above and thought he might like that one? And Warehouse Skate Boards offers custom made skateboards, so I will have to do more research and try to get him a good one that fits him.
I will also need to get him some protective wear, like pads and stuff, and I can find all that and more right there online.
Now, if only I could make sure he wouldn't get hurt, that would be wonderful! I guess that is why they practice so much?
Till Next Time,
