I like the board for the kids.....awesome board, I might buy one.

The military theme is funny, they leave out the ladies, unless I missed that. Cool boards.

First - thanks!

On leaving out the ladies, not at all! We have actually a higher male/female team ratio than most other companies. We don't build equipment based on chromosome typing; we base it on height and weight. One of our female riders broke 5 - yes 5 - MENS boards on their old sponsor last season, which led her away from twig and berry construction methods and over to us.. She needs real steel, not tarted-up butterfly wishes.

We did, however, just release a new model called the AdAstra, which uses our 'emocore', a lighter weight core for those weighed down by the 'weight of the world' and not much else. But women and slim men can both ride it - it isn't a 'Womens board' because I prefer to let women decide that . Like the military, we have an officially unisex culture, and we put women in combat roles .

Dan, your board is on the way to us, hot off the presses once here, it is on it's way to you!

One thing on the kids boards is they are real boards - dual-slant sidewalls, Kevlar, etc- we didn't stop at the graphics., so they are basically shrink-ray adult boards. We were actually going to call the board 'shrink ray' but we opted for separate names instead.

saw that....really amazing IMO to offer that. A real keeper for my little ones "first board". I have to buy so much stuff that they grown out of, and it usually gets donated, but a board like this would be rad to keep. Props!

That's cool! Start her off early and maybe we'll be seeing her on the medal stand in the Olympics or X Games ... on an Echelon board, perhaps .

Due to the rising cost of ammo, do not expect a warning shot! Sorry for the inconvenience.
