Learning to skateboard
My daughter is an adventurous soul and will have a go (with gusto) at pretty much anything life throws her way. I love her spirit. Her gorgeous Great Grandma was just the same and I have so much I can learn from them.
I so want to be more like that.
At the start of this month, we asked if we would like to choose a skateboard from Skates.co.uk for L for my daughter to review. She is a huge fan of purple and that was our prerequisite! (Oh, how technical we are!)
They have a cool range of skateboards. I would personally have chosen one with a skull! But no she like this rather lovely purple Enuff Logo Stain Complete Skateboard (£64.99)
I (who know nothing about skateboards) could see at once it was a beauty. It is made from Canadian maple and look such good quality.
These are the features
- 7.75 x 31.5
- 100% Canadian Maple hot pressed, medium concave deck
- Light weight aluminium Pro truck with 95A cushions
- 53mm 55D Refreshers wheel with print
- ABEC 7 Chrome bearings
Though I have to be honest and admit I have little clue what they mean – thankfully the website has live support so you simply need to ask!
L loved the look of the skateboard and was excited to learn to skateboard. She spent hours on the Saturday afternoon going up and down our kitchen, then out in out garden after watching YouTube how to skateboard videos and trying again and again. She was determined to crack this!
On the Sunday morning, I have never known her get dressed and up so quickly – begging me to take her down the park. Again and again she got on that skateboard until she was sailing away.
I was so proud of her. She is KEEN!
What a fabulous gift idea for Christmas this would make and what a brilliant, healthy and fun new hobby my daughter has been introduced to.
Take a look….
