is a cross between a skateboard and a snowboard, the Ripstick caster board is the ideal ride for young people and kids looking for the next level of riding. The board has a rotating deck and 360-degree rotating wheels, which allow you to move like you are surfing or on a snowboard. You can turn and accelerate the board by rotating your hips and shifting your weight from side to side, just like snowboarding, and your feet never need to touch the ground. The Ripstick comes standard with a concave deck design including traction pads and a kick tail and nose, which improves stability and is great for trying some awesome tricks. With the 76mm polyurethane wheels and ABEC-5 bearing casters, you get a smooth ride pretty much where ever you ride (note: you will not get a smooth ride if you try riding your Ripstick on grass. You can try but it is not that fun.) Best for riders 8 years of age and older all the way up to riders who weigh 220 pounds.
