Whenever we’re down by Freedom Plaza and see the skateboarders doing ollies or flips, my husband likes to remind me that he and his buddies used to tear up the same concrete over 20 years ago. He was a skater before skateboarding was cool. (And, I have to admit, I think that’s kinda cool.)
I know he would love to see Owen (or even Sasha–skater girls rock!) on a skateboard someday, and if the kids were a little older, we would definitely take advantage of this great deal from Tippr: For $128, you can get two 2-hour lessons over a 2-week period ($225 value) from Go Skate.
So, if you see the X Games in your kid’s future or maybe just want him/her to learn to skateboard safely, go check it out.
