Its time to street surf with the Whiplash

Summer is in full bloom in NYC as the weather has been in the high 90’s for a solid week plus now (thankfully it seems a little cooler at mid 80’s). Since Dada Rocks is about getting out and playing with kids (before I melt in this hot NYC weather)… Its time to break out the stuff for the older kids… Introducing the Whiplash , Its the Waveboard and a scooter mixed into one awesome new outdoor toy (sure if you have enough room like say Google Headquarters you can use it inside).

The coolness factor on this awesome hardware is that once you get your skill level up you never need to touch your feet to the ground like their waveboard you can use your body/legs to keep the scooter continually moving. We’ve been playing with the unit in Arizona and its been a blast for the kids ranging in ages from 7-15… While our 15 year old had a little trouble footing the board due to his size (he’s a giant!) the other 3 kids had no problem and quickly got to a level were they didnt need to touch the ground.

I’m going to put this out there that a child should always wear some type of protective head gear (and maybe wrist guards) to protect themselves. While thats not shown in the picture above. this is more of a do as I say not as I do type warning!

If you’d like to get your own you can purchase one from Amazon [Link] and other major retail locations. Here is a quick promo video showing off the whiplash.

The Whiplash website is loaded with great videos that make it easier for kids to see what they need to know to get their skill level up [Link] you’ll learn to drift, cut and self propel.
