Wheel spins 360°
True, it would take a fairly big splash in the world of extreme sports to knock skateboards off the top spot, but for an interesting, slick and definitely different way to carve up the pavement, why not give the Wave Mini SL Caster Board
Part of the (relatively) new movement of Waveboarding
, this twisting two-wheeled platform lets you propel yourself along without having to stomp the ground. Just plant one foot on each deck and twisting your feet in opposing directions (incorporating a bit of a weave) will bundle you along.
Easier said than done, obviously – learning to ride a Waveboard can be a tricky and time consuming process – but it’s a fantastic way to strengthen core muscles and improve your overall balance
. And once you’ve learned the basics, you’ll find it far more manoeuvrable, responsive and lighter than a standard skateboard.
The Wave Mini SL Caster Board is the smallest in the range, designed for younger riders and first-timers
. But the small size is also favoured by more seasoned Waveboarders for its tight turning circle; and being lightweight it’s ideal for tricks. Although you might want to build up to those.
