My son has been skateboarding since he was four years old. He has gotten really good at it and last year he and his father had built a half pipe in our driveway for him to do his stunts on. He just turned ten and all he wanted was a motorized skateboard. His friends all come to our house to skateboard and although I'm a wreck watching them do their stunts, it's nice to know that they are in the neighborhood instead of skateboarding out in the street somewhere. He has a couple of skateboards that he uses and his father said that maybe we should buy a kit to make his favorite a motorized skateboard. We had told our son about this idea that we had and he didn't want to change his favorite one. We went out shopping for a new motorized skateboard and they are a little on the expensive side, but they definitely are very cool. They run on a lithium battery and can go as fast as 19 MPH. They will take the passenger up a hill without any effort on the rider and by shifting your weight you could slow it down or even stop it. We decided to get him one and know he will be the envy of all his friends. Share
