Is the Ookkie right for my child?
The Ookkie is for all of the Mums, Dads, Grandparents and rad Aunts and Uncles who want to safely support their little one to learn how to ride a skateboard. We have designed the Ookkie for an average age range of 2-6 years old and a maximum recommended rider weight of 20kg. If they are under or up to this weight, they will be good to roll!
Will the Ookkie help my child safely learn how to skateboard?
The 41-60cm adjustable Child handle provides extra stability for riders from 2-6 years old and helps them develop their balance and confidence on the board as they grow. While the 81-86cm adjustable Parent handle helps you to safely guide them. As the rider learns and grows, the board will transition with them. There are 4 stages of the Ookkie from all handles, to just the child or just the parent handle, to none at all when they are ready to skate on their own.
Will it fit in my car boot?
We all know how quickly the back of the car fills up, so we designed the Ookkie to be easily collapsible. With the quick push of a button at the base of the board, you can break the board down into its 3 main components to fit nicely. Perfect to take down to the park, beach or on longer holidays!
How does it steer?
The Ookkie is easily manoeuvrable without compromising on stability. Some parents assist their little ones in steering when first learning, however, as the rider develops confidence, they can begin to change direction by leaning. The front truck is easily adjustable, to be either tightened (for a more stable ride) or loosened to allow the rider more control.
What else do I need to know?
