Hello,
DS1 is turning 7 & would like a skateboard. I know nothing about skateboards! Can anyone recommend one to me please?
Many thanks!

Ds 8 has a skateboard but struggled with it, as did his friend (who has great balance). We got them stunt scooters which can be used in skate parks and they love them. Maybe worth considering unless you are sure your ds can manage a skateboard (apparently the bearings are key with both skateboards and stunt scooters and the more you spend, the better the bearings are).

Thank you so much for all that info bisjo, greatly appreciated! I did wonder about the pricing as some seem very cheap & I couldn't work out why. Thanks again
