SkateXS has launched a brand new website and online shop specifically for younger skaters ages 5 - 10. The shop features SkateXS' own flagship line of skateboards made of environmentally friendly bamboo. The boards are sized just for kids with a size chart to help parents choose the right size board for their son or daughter. Complete skateboards are made to order using only high quality name brand components such as Bones and Spitfire.
The bamboo skateboards may look and feel a lot like a traditional board, but by using bamboo as opposed to wood, a stronger, lighter and more responsive skateboard becomes possible. SkateXS turned to the industry leader - Bamboo Skateboards out of Oceanside, CA to manufacture the specially sized SkateXS boards for kids.
The SkateXS website at http://www.skatexs.com/ features a Parent's Guide to Skateboarding that helps address parent's concerns and questions. The guide includes focus areas on Safety, Equipment, Skataboarding Basics and an F..A.Q. The Parent's Guide is an evolving feature with its own blog that includes articles such as 5 Tips for Skatepark Road Trips with kids and an Introduction to Skatepark Etiquette for younger skaters.
Founded by parents, SkateXS was built with children's safety and health at the forefront. Skateboarding can help kids develop critical physical skills including balance, coordination and stamina while also teaching self-reliance and encouraging self-confidence. Two primary safety concerns with kids skateboarding have been the size and quality of the skateboards. Parents often had to choose between a smaller toy board made with low quality parts or a full size skateboard designed for a full size teenager. The SkateXS boards finally let parent's choose the best of both worlds.
Parents can customize their child's skateboard online choosing between an Advanced board setup and a Pro board setup. Multiple colored grip tape options are available as well as different options for wheel color and style. The bamboo skateboards are manufactured for SkateXS by Bamboo Skateboards out of Oceanside, CA. Each complete skateboard is assembled to order by hand and packaged for shipping in the Wisconsin based headquarters.
SkateXS is offering free shipping for the holidays with orders placed by Thursday December 13th shipping free in time for Christmas.
