If you have someone that has been wanting a Ripstick, there is a great deal on Amazon right now for the RipStik “G” Grind Caster Board.
The regular price is $119.99 and you can get it for $50.31 just shipped.
Best described as a cross between a skateboard and a snowboard, the Ripstik caster board is distinguished by its pivoting deck and 360-degree inclined caster trucks, which offers a snowboard-like carving ability. The RipStik “G” features a spinning aircraft-grade aluminum “G” tube in the center for extreme grinding action. Like the original Ripstik, the “G” moves you forward with a simple weight transfer that lets you turn or accelerate without pushing–just like when you’re carving down the slopes.
The board offers such features as spiked traction pads, a kick tail and nose, and a concave deck design, which combine to improve your foot control–a must for tricks. And thanks to the 76mm polyurethane wheels and precision ABEC-5 bearing casters, skaters will enjoy a smooth ride on almost any type of pavement.
Designed for children 8 years and up, the Ripstik’s plastic end platforms and metal torsion beam support up to 220 pounds.
