  • We bought my 4yr old one for about 20 bucks, my DH's on the other hand cost about $140

  • Well, it depends how serious you want to get about it. My son skates, and is in the process of being looked at to be nationally sponsored, so we are pretty far into it. You can get a beginner board, like at Target, or Academy Sports or somewhere like that for under $40.00. If your son shows lots of promise, I can guarantee, that board won't last very long. My son's boards run anywhere from $150.00- $300.00. That is, they sell the board separate, the trucks, wheels, and most pro shops will put the grip tape on when you purchase the board. It's a pretty expensive hobby, but if someone can get nationally sponsored, it makes up for it. Hope your son has lots of fun, I know mine does!
