Win a Descender Skate Board | Holiday Gift Guide 2013

If you are following the Christmas Wishes giveaways(which you really ought to be), then I am sure you were blown away by the Rockboard Original Scooter I just posted about. If that is the case, you are really going to flip for this.

The Descender is the new, all-terrain, skate board from Rockboard.

With winter weather ravaging many of the states, using a traditional skate board is not really possible. With the Descender, you don't have to wait for a sunny day or a smooth sidewalk.

This board is outfitted with heavy duty rollers or tough as nails treads.

These treads grip just about any downhill surface. Pavement, grass, wooded paths and even snowy hills are nothing the Descender can't conquer.

Here in Florida, we NEVER get snow, but the all-terrain aspect is still very important to me. Since there is no sidewalk near our home, and we live right off a busy main road, there is not much room for him to ride on the pavement. Riding a traditional board in the grass would be practically impossible, so I love that with the Descender he can ride it right in our own backyard(literally).

The width of these rollers makes the board easier to balance too. Since they can also pivot independently, bumps, lumps and dips are no cause for concern. One "wheel" could dip if need be while the others remain flat, so the board is harder to tip over.

I can certainly speak to haw steady it is. I have the worst balance ever, and am usually terrified to skateboard. I can barely stay on a normal board, but this one was great. I almost didn't look like a fool. I am actually kind of proud if myself, although I've been out skateboarded by 8 year olds.

My husband took this for a test ride too. He is not the best skateboarder either, but he did really well, and he said it was a lot of fun. The fact that two oldies like us can do it without getting hurt really helps us be confident in how safe it is for our son.

Another aspect that I really love about this board is that is comes fully assembled in the box. Nothing is worse than having tons of gifts under the tree then not being able to play with anything after you open them all because everything needs to be assembled first.

The Descender makes an awesome gift because it is so fun, and so safe, but it also helps get kids active, which keeps them healthier, so it really is an all around perfect gift. My son is a bit chubby, so I love finding fun ways to make him more active. This is exercise in disguise, and I love it.

If you have a little adventurer on your shopping list, then I highly recommend the Descender. If you're lucky, you won't even have to buy it, because the Descender is on our Christmas Wishes list, which means we are giving one away.
