My son has been skateboarding since he was 4 (he's now 7). He LOVES it. He quit for a year when we made the mistake of introducing video games to him, but the curtain has lifted and he is back in the bowls! His favorite place to ride right now is The Cove in Santa Monica. The kids there are awesome - they encourage one another, help each other and inspire everyone! There is no better day for him than skating with his dad, then heading across the street to Tacos Por Favor. Livin' the dream baby, livin' the dream.
