    For kids who love board sports, or who’ve always wanted to give them a try, the Spooner Freestyle board is an ideal gift. Your future Shaun Whites may be city-bound but still work on their technique and balance, or simply enjoy hours of fun mimicking skateboarding, surfing, and snowboarding moves on the Spooner, which can be used outdoors and indoors, even in small spaces. Created by the owner of a San Diego surf shop, the Spooner enables kids of all ages and skill levels to enjoy the thrill of board sports whether they’re seaside, snowbound, or landlocked. Designed for kids under four feet tall, your young boarders can continue to hang ten as they grow, by graduating to the larger Spooner Pro model.
