Indoor Skateboarding Practice
I have to be honest, I never learned how to use a skateboard personally. So when my kids started taking an interest in it, I couldn’t really help them. I did recognize the potential for danger and injuries though! So how can I help them learn how to skateboard without hurting themselves? Well…what about indoor skateboarding practice?
Like a skateboard without wheels, Kick Flipper is an excellent way to learn the balance, footwork, and coordination basics that are essential for skateboarding, snowboarding, and surfing. Boys and girls ages 5 and up will have fun perfecting beginner and advanced tricks. Fun and creative way to exercise. And, because Kick Flipper can be used on carpet, grass, or sand, beginners can safely learn techniques in their own homes and yards. Made in the U.S., Kick Flippers are cool looking, lightweight enough to slip into a backpack to take to school, the park, or the beach, and rugged enough to support up to 200 lbs. Recommended for ages 5 and up.
We call this a practice skateboard. It has no wheels, so it’s not going to roll out from under them or really go anwhere without the kids wanting it to move. It’s a great (and safe) way to get them to learn about balance, foot placement, and even basic tricks on a skateboard in the privacy of their home.
I’m not going to lie, these make for a great workout tool too! Again, it’s about working on your balancing skills and engages your core once you get moving.
Now, I don’t do all the fun board tricks that the kids can do, but I was able to learn a few neat tips by visiting the Kick Flipper website’s tips and tricks page. They have pictures and step by step instructions to teach you about the parts of a skateboard and how to start working on your skateboarding skill list!
My kids mainly use this inside, especially when they want to spend time learning a new trick or when the weather is poor, but it’s also made to be used on the grass or the sand. And since it holds up to 200 pounds, all of their friends can easily take a turn with it without worrying about damaging the board. Plus they can toss it in their backpack or duffel bag to take it to the local park or a friend’s house after school.
