I grew up LOVING to go skating. The local rink in our small town was the happening place for all the kids and has now become a great hobby for my little guy. He’s always done really well on roller-blades (I do NOT!) so I thought it was only fair to pass on this review to the most qualified specialist in the household: our Little Frugal Floridian!
Now.. my little guy is super stoked when it comes to mail time. Whether we get in a 25c coupon or a huge box full of goodies he is always a good sport and hanging in for the day the boxes come for him!
Last week was the lucky day for my little guy when My little guy was lucky enough to get to try the Jazzy HX2 Heelys as shown below:
Now.. while my little guy thought he was going to be a Heelys pro (since he has been skating for over a year now) it is important to mention that we did check out the General Heelys Skating Info and the Heelys Safety Playbook for important tips on how to make sure you stay safe while having fun!
The first few days were a learning process and they do require different technique then the usual inline skater. BUT, after a few videos and some practice my little guy is doing great (with padded knees of course.. just in case).
Here is a few pics we snapped from the first day and while he did not have protective gear in these photos it is something I highly recommend (for kids AND adults) and he did wear in our outside practice:
And here is a video that I’m sure you will all get a kick out of:
And a recap after a few days of practicing… he’s getting there!
