As a mother, every time I see a kid on a skateboard, including when my 4yr old wants to try the one at the toy store, I envisage broken bones and bruises as I gently steer him in the direction of the scooters instead.

However, there will probably come a time when I will have to accept that "boys will be boys", a time when his bike with training wheels and parent handle will be laid to rest, *sob*.

Take some free skateboarding lessons
When this day comes, apart from buying him every known piece of injury prevention apparel, should he want to try skateboarding, I would definitely take him along to some lessons so at least he knows how to properly handle this flying piece of perspex with wheels.

City of Ryde, as part of their "Active in Ryde" program will be holding 2 Learn to Skate clinics at Meadowbank Park during the school holiday term in July. Session details as follows :

Session 1: Clinic 10am - 12noon (Arrive 9.45am) OR
Session 2: Clinic 12.30pm - 2.30pm (Arrive 12.15pm).

This clinic will cater to beginners and intermediate skill level skaters with the focus on improving the control and safety skills of the beginners in line with more experienced skaters. The sessions will be taught by experienced and qualified instructors.

Although spare skateboards, helmets and protective equipment will be available on the day, it is recommended you bring your own if you have it.
