My Daughter on her Chicklet (Backyard)

Just fooling around in our backyard. We're a few hours from an actual mountain. She seems to be capable of balancing on it well enough. She loves doing it too (I ask for a break before she does - wears me out, lugging her back up the hill). I think she'd do pretty well on a groomed slope. The Chicklet/Choppers seem really good about not catch edges easily.

Nothin' special...but I'm happy she enjoys riding it so far!

Need to get her some proper headgear before hitting the real slopes...Also, any suggestions for butt padding for a 4 year old kid?

That is adorable!! My wife ordered the K2 equivalent of the chicklet for my daughter She won't be ready to use it at the hill for a year or so but I plan to take her to the park at least hehe.

I love her little helmet too lol. Just awesome

Check this thing out Burton Riglet

It'll make it so you can control her speed a bit more I guess and also helps for pulling them back up lol.

That is awesome! It's nice that you have a small hill in your backyard that she can practice on.

As for padding, I'm unsure. I tried searching for some, but the only kids ones that showed up were Optimum Electro Plus for kids. All were from the UK.

Cool!

Yea, I misunderstood that the Riglet was a sold-separately accessory so I was a little disappointed that the 100 didn't come with one. In the meantime I tied a small piece of rope where the Riglet would go and just attach a dog leash The Riglet's nice though because it retracts. Not as ghetto as a rope and dog leash either haha.

The little gear is definitely cute but I doubt subsequent purchases (as she grows out of stuff) will be as fun haha! I have a son who's no quite 2 yet, also. He may just have to learn on a pink Chicklet

Grats man! Looks like both of our first babies are sharing a birthday. I can't wait to find out the gender. Has your girl had her first ultrasound yet? Let me tell you, hearing your first baby's heartbeat for the first time is something else. Words can't describe the feeling I got hearing it. I'm super stoked!

Stop being overprotective and put that kid on a half-pipe. She'll figure it out and have X-games gold by time she's 13
