I have seen a few of these skate boards around town and it really looked like it would be a lot of fun. Also it can get you to your destination a lot faster. So I was interested to see it in the items that we could select. I have attached a top picture of the skate board and hopefully you can see that it has a good gripping to stand on to help avoid slippage. I also attached a side picture so that you could see the under carriage. I gave the skate board to my older grandson and he absolutely loves it! I do like the fact that both feet are on the skate board. That way their foot / leg do not get caught while the kids are pushing off. And it eliminates that type of injury / fall. However the skate board does require that you have good balance, which I believe is a good thing for children to master. Unfortunately I do not. I would recommend this skate board to other people that are looking for that unique and awesome present for kids and teenagers alike.
