Fun story. When I was 10, I was fat and couldn’t have balanced on a skateboard if my life depended on it. Instead, I’d kneel on one and propel myself forward with my hands, pushing on the side. All was good until one day I had the brilliant idea to try and push… from the front! That quickly resulted in my pinky finger being dramatically separated from its nail. Not fun. So I don’t like skateboards, but plenty of people do. And if you’re gonna buy one, you might want to consider the SNAP, which folds away for easy transport in a backpack:
The deck is constructed from 6061-T6, high grade aluminum, and fitted with 56mm premium, 85a urethane wheels using ABEC 7 bearings for fast and efficient cruising. It folds into a compact 14.3” x 7.87” x 5” dimension that can easily fit inside smaller lockers and backpacks.
From the video it looks like you can do anything with this board that you could with a wooden one. The hinges are patented and are meant to secure the board so it doesn’t just fold up as you do an ollie. Or whatever it is the kids do on skateboards. Remember, I don’t like’em.
