Good god, I hope not. Adorable little skater boys attract aggressive teenaged girls who pierce their faces and dye their hair pink and all sorts of unspeaking things. That is, if I remember high school correctly.
Still, it's pretty neat that my five year old can take skate boarding lessons. Another fun fact from the County Fair! The fellow in the above photo from Action was really good with the kiddo and made him feel safe and excited about a brand new sport that will most likely mean a broken arm at some point were he to get serious about it. Considering how scared and freaked out he tends to be about other more traditional kid activities (swimming, riding a bike), it was refreshing to watch him get all padded up and be escorted up the skate ramp. Maybe next summer.
