So my dad drove us to Sports Authority, Annette and I used our own money to buy 2 boards (they cost about $80 each) and we walked out of the store happy. And no, I did not get a pink board, like pictured here. I got a blue one, just like Annette. If I did get a pink one, though, that would be awesome. ^,^
I've been having so much fun with this! I mastered the board in, what, 5 minutes? I'm like a pro! Well, maybe not a real pro. We got a free how-to-ride dvd with the Ripstick and it showed these professional riders doing all kinds of stunts. I'm definitely not there yet. But I know how to ride off of a sidewalk onto a street and not fall off. I think there should be a skatepark somewhere near us. I'd like to test it out there.
Today I woke up early so my sister and I could "rip" to the supermarket, which is normally our walking route. We are getting soo good. This could be like a new hobby of mine. Hey, does anyone else out there know how to ride a board or something?
