7yo boy desperately wants skateboard for Christmas. Is there a particular brand that is cool?

Can't comment on brands as such but my 7 year old has asked for this skateboard. But then he is superhero mad.

My ds has a penny board that he loves! It cost £12.99 from Amazon and has lasted really well.
Not sure if that helps! Skateboards can range so much in price, from £10 - £110+
I think it depends if he's skaeboarded before, where he's going to use it? Park or proper skatepark? Garden?
My ds now wants a more expensive better board, I'm going to the local indoor skate park to buy it as they really know their stuff there and won't just sell me the most expensive one. I'll probably be spending around £80 gulp

Mine had penny boards at that age.
Now they have custom made at the local skate shop.

I brought these - they are solid and hardwearing - have the same design as penny boards - hard to tell the difference and have loads of different colour options
