Fully adjustable for safe speeds for small children with an easier to carry, lightweight design with backpack is why parents choose Skitch as the best skateboard for beginner boys, girls and kids ages 6-12 years old. Skitch is also fully adjustable for bigger riders with top quality bearings and a buttery-smooth ride feel is why professionals also choose Skitch as the best 22 inch mini cruiser skate board for teen boys and girls and adult men and women. The wheels on this board are super smooth, the backpack carrier is amazing and I absolutely love the colors! My son is 8 years old and just learning to ride a skateboard and he absolutely loves it. This would be a great gift for anyone of any age on your shopping list!
