Izzy is just started to get into the whole world of skateboards and scooters. Her dad loves skateboards and surfing so I think he would love it if she followed in that hobby…if only so he gets a chance to do it more.
When we first met he would often be popping out skating and he would sometimes bring his skateboard out whenever we went somewhere for a walk.. which often meant me lagging behind! I tried once or twice but as with surfing I’m just a bit useless.
This is Izzy on her first attempt at just 18months old:
I can see Izzy being good at it. She’s pretty daring and will try most things and loves to be just like her dad.
Skatehut have a really wide selection of skateboards and scooters on their website to suit most tastes. We have been taking a look at possibly starting Izzy out with a scooter for her birthday next week and maybe a skateboard for Christmas.
As with any kind of sport it’s worth looking into getting protection such as knee and elbow pads as well as a helmet for your children. While they may not think it looks quite so cool it’s definitely needed with the amounts of knocks and bumps they are likely to get.
If you have children who are interested in the skating scene why not try looking out for your local skate park. We have two quite close to us that we hope to take Izzy to soon. Mainly for her to watch all that goes on rather than participating. She is only 3 ( well nearly) years old you know!
If your child is a little too small for skateboards or traditional scooters I found these pretty cool ride on scooters on the SkateHut site which enable your toddler to sit on the scooter until they are ready to scoot 🙂
Does your child like any adventurous sports?
