My husband used to skateboard professionally so it goes without saying that my three year old loves to copy his daddy and is a natural on his. My expert husband swears that the Powell-Peralta Micro Ripper 3 Complete Skateboard is great for little ones who are just learning, so here is what we think of it!
The Powell Skateboard retails for $79.95 on Amazon right now. It is 7.5 inches wide and 24 inches long, which is obviously shorter than a typical skateboard because little feet need a smaller board to master before they move on to a big skateboard! It comes ready to go with all the parts you need. All you’ve got to do is set it up. All the parts are included and it’s super simple to do! Don’t worry if you’re not especially into the skateboard design I pictured above because there are plenty to pick.
My son started using this skateboard when he was only 2 years old. Considering he skateboards on it every single week, it is in great shape! All the wheels are intact, the board has no cracks and shows no signs of wear or tear, and I know it will last many many more years to come. Powell Skateboards come with a limited warranty, their customer service team are wonderful, and we always love to support products that are made in the USA.

Of course it goes without saying that we recommend buying and wearing protective items like helmets, knee pads, elbow pads, the works! Skateboarding can be dangerous and it’s always best to be prepared and protected. 🙂
