I learned how to ride 5 years ago. My brother taught me and it only took 2 or 3 hours for me to learn. Now I can do any trick except ollies and kick flips. Those are tricks I do on a skateboard. It's the only thing I ride in my neighborhood besides a golf cart. Me and my neighbor learn a new trick every weekend. I highly recommend this. I have only had one ripstik my whole life. It's been run over and parts of the colored part has fallen off but I can still ride it perfectly.I LOVE RIPSTIKS!!!
I love this ripstick my friends all have one and im saving my money to get one the difference between the ripstick g and the normal ripstick is that the riptick g can grind . It takes a little while to learn how to ride it. I would recomend riding it on a sidewalk. Do not get discouarged if you cannt do it yet it took me a while but im so glad i didnt gove up a must have
