  • My son wants one too but he isnt getting one. Hes too young to not really get hurt on one.

  • To young for a skateboard and after what happened the other day...I don't think any age is appropriate. On Monday a teenage boy from my neighborhood was on his skateboard and had his ear things in and went right in front of a car and that car plowed head on into another car. The boy was pinned between the two cars and died instantly. This was just two blocks from my house and that boy use to skateboard past my house every single day. What a gift for those poor parents.

  • I think I might get him one but monitor him while he uses it, if he really wanted one.
