Meet Oscar. He's 3 and lovin' his Ookkie!
We spoke to Oscar's mum and dad, Josh and Claire, to learn a bit more about his journey with the Ookkie. Here's what they had to say.
What was your reason for getting an Ookkie?
He loves watching daddy skateboard and wanted to learn as well. Ookkie looked great and provided the safety and parent control/help we needed for him as a beginner rider.
Describe the learning experience on the Ookkie for us.
Fantastic, shaky with balance to begin but didn't take long before he was standing great and even did it one handed. We purchased the safety gear and helmet too, which he loves to wear.
Do you get any comments when you're out and about riding the board?
Yes, how awesome it is and where we purchased. It's great to pop out for a coffee and Oscar hops on his board as we go down the path together to grab one. We all enjoy what it brings.
How has the Ookkie helped your little one in their development?
Absolutely! His gross motor skills have improved as well as his leg strength, balance, core and his confidence.
How has the Ookkie become a part of your family life and routine?
We practice on the footpath out the front, we take it to the park and we use it each day for our coffee run.
