Have you seen the Shaun White Skateboards for kids at Walmart? #ShaunWhiteSupplyCo #CBias

We are always trying to find new ways to encourage happy healthy kids. Physical activity is a great way to do that! Teaching your kids fun ways to keep active not only helps them physically, but also their emotional well-being. I strive to make my boys healthy inside & out. Our oldest son has expressed interest in skateboarding so we thought we would test the waters while shopping at Walmart

I was surprised by how limited the skateboards for kids selection was both by the quantity & quality

We just about gave up. We walked past the bike/scooter area (where the other skateboards were) toward toys. When I spotted the Shaun White Supply Co Skateboards for kids display

Take a quick look at the skateboards in these pictures. What do you notice?   

With a quick glance, I could tell instantly the board that was higher quality. With 3 boys, I know they are going to be rough so I always prefer quality and let them distress their own gear! I am not a professional when it comes to skateboards. However, I do consider Shaun White trustworthy as far as the topic goes. All 3 boys were mesmerized by the graphics since they were fun & colorful. We like that they are reminiscent of our Grateful Dead prints :) With the quality and style, I think $39.97 is an awesome price for something more durable. Check out the image below to see different styles. We went for the Thrash series, but there are more to choose from ranging from $59.97-69.97.

Shaun White Thrash Series Skateboard, Easy Rider: The Shaun White Thrash Series Skateboard is constructed of maple and stiff glue for top performance. In addition, the skateboard features urethane wheels, heavy-duty trucks and ABEC 7 speed bearings.

  • 7ply maple and stiff glue for top performance

  • 5.375″ heavy-duty, lightweight aluminum trucks
  • ABEC 7 speed bearings
  • Deck: 31.5″ x 8″

Dylan was ready to get started

He was hesitant at first. He would only use 1 foot.

Then, he made it kind of to two feet…

We decided to let his dad help him since he used to skateboard

 With some coaching, we got him steady and confident

  2. How fun! I’m scared of skateboards because i have horrible balance, but my kids would sure love them! They are always out on their scooters, so a skateboard would be the next step up! :)
