JUST WHAT IS A ROCKBOARD SCOOTER?
Outdoor activities for children who are not interested in sports are few in number, so finding ways for them to get outside and get some exercise are limited. Families should consider the innovative Rockboard Scooters that are seeing increasing attention and use by children, teens, and adults.
The Rockboard Scooter is a variation of the traditional kick scooter, but offers increased exercise and varied uses. They are the perfect alternative to bikes, roller blades, and skateboards.
The Rockboard Scooter is shaped like the common kick scooter with which we are all familiar; however, instead of using the same foot and leg over and over again, in order to move forward, this scooter requires that the rider rock back and forth on the board to achieve forward motion. The rider is exercising both legs aerobically! Coupled with a hand break and the ability to lower the board and use a traditional scooter “push,” if desired, this scooter gives the best of all worlds! In addition, this scooter folds up for easy storage and transportation.
Whether the Rockboard Scooter is being used for fun or transportation, it brings all ages outside. Children can get out and exercise as they ride with friends all over the neighborhood. (Don’t forget the safety gear!) In fact, there are mini versions of the Rockboard for young children and standard sizes for older children, teens, and adults. College students have a great option for campus transport, using the Rockboard Scooter to get to classes, and then they can fold the unit up and carry it with them right into the classroom. Adults also have an opportunity for exercise and for an outdoor activity with their children, or even a ride to work. Rockboard Scooters are the fun, efficient, healthy new way to ride.
