Pros: No pushing - That always throws me off. Different Styles of Acceleration. Even up-hill!
Cons: Sometimes when your turning sharp the wheel will skid.
I rode the Rip Stick for the first time at my friends house,
Ive seen other people do it so I wanted to try.
30 minutes later I got the thing down pat!
Later, we took it down a hill, just in the city, and the
best part is... IT GOES UP-HILL! You'll never have to walk back again. Also, if your a big surf fan or snowboards lover
then this thing is yours. The different styles you ride relate to how surfing and snowboarding work. There's also the way the DVD teaches you how to do it, but the way they show you is no guarantee for the optimum speed you can dish out.
If you've ever ridden a skateboard before and you stopped because you had to push? With a Rip Stick the whole idea it not to let your feet touch the ground. Therefore all you people out there who have ate it on you board because you had to push here is your redemption. 163
The only downside to this awesome device is the fact that you look a little weird riding it. Most people try it from their hips and that doesn't look very attractive! And sometimes while you're riding and you make a sharp turn your wheel will skid out from under you!
The controls are simple:
Move your back foot back and forth to gain speed!
I'm going to buy one!
You should too!
