My son wants a new skateboard. He broke his old one trying to do an Olly (Ollie?). His old one was a cheap Toys R Us one bought when he was in maybe third grade. His birthday is coming up so that’s what he’s getting.
He’s been visiting a local skateboard/snowboard/wakeboard store. He wants one by Plan B or Zero, which my wife was looking at online, and apparently they got good reviews. I don’t know why he wants those, but probably more for the bottom art than anything else.
Is there anything we should particularly look for in a skateboard? He doesn’t know tricks, but wants to learn them, so it should be good for a beginner.
