I think the only thing I know about skateboarding is that Tony Hawk is one and a good one at that. Now you can follow in his footsteps with the Tony Hawk Skateboard range.

Like I said I know nothing about skateboards so I don't know if the features are amazing but from what we've seen of it we love it. This skateboard is perfect for Ellie to learn on, she has been watching YouTube videos of basic tricks and can flip it while stood on it and other basic things and has slowly got the hang of pushing herself along on it.

Considering the size of it, it is quite light and Ellie has no problem picking it up and using it. It is made well, it's solid but at the same time bends to be able to turn and we love the design on the bottom. Ellie hasn't been brave enough to go out of the garden yet but she is getting there, building her confidence. In my opinion this is a great skate board for beginners.

We are lucky to have a couple of little slopes on the paths in our garden which she has been doing up and down. I've said she can go to the skate park when she has learned to brake properly. We should get there during the summer holidays. I will be going with her to make sure she doesn't get over confident. Eek!

Ellie has spent more time outside in the back garden over the past week than she has in the the past 3 months thanks to the skateboard. She's been having great fun and is getting some exercise too.

Of course Ellie usually does wear knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards and a helmet when she is on the skateboard. She didn't just for these photos.

At the moment this skateboard is on sale for £44.95 down from £54.94 and can be bought from the website.

We were sent the The Tony Hawk SS 540 Wasteland Complete Skateboard free of charge in exchange for this blog post.
