Holiday Sk8 Shopping As a parent you may feel compelled to buy your child a football or a soccer ball for the holidays... and you should. Just don't forget to also get your child a skateboard! A well rounded child should be exposed to all sorts of things for fun, learning and development. And just as you'd go outside to play catch, you should go outside and take interest in your child's skateboarding. Hell, buy a sk8 for yourself too! Anyway - back to holiday shopping...

I'm sure Walmart, Kmart or whatever "Mart" at which you're accustomed to depleting your savings will have wonderful sales on footballs, soccer balls and skateboards. Go for the Balls! But when it comes to buying that skateboard you'll be happy to know that you won't have to battle crowds at the mall because you're going to buy that board from your local skate shop!

Every skateboard manufacturer out there should be pushing parents to buy sk8 product for their kids (isn't it odd that companies don't seem to do this?) at qualified skateboard shops. If you're not a sk8-savvy parent you may have to use the phone book - find "Skateboard" in the yellow pages. Don't be afraid to pick up the phone; shop owners are very friendly and as eager to make sales as anyone else.

Don't disappoint. Your child wants a skateboard - a real skateboard - for Christmas!
