When the going gets tough, the tough buy more toys!
My kids are always stealing my skate. They all have boards of their own but "Daddy's rides better". I don't blame them, I can set up a good stick. So now I'm going crazy riding the "crappy board" while everyone else fights over my A,B,and C setup. Today I took matters into my own hands. Armed with the Mastercard, we packed the whole family into the Suburban and set off for the local skate shops. I scored two sets of 78a's for the boys. I got a set of zip zingers and a set of Satori's. I was hoping that 78a's would be real smooth on the street. They are not bad. The smaller diameter and narrow width makes them relatively ruff. I think they will work for my kiddos. Next I will find some bushings that are soft enough for the kids to turn. The master plan includes a mini size deck for each kid.
The best part of the night was teaching my boys how to switch out their wheels. Now my sweet daughter wants her own skate. :)
