So this is what the kids are doing these days.

Ripsticking.

Oh, and don't worry. I only fell four times and made myself bleed once. Profusely.

How is this different from skateboarding? Enlighten me.

kristin said...

Awesome!

brie said...

Kara, it has two wheels instead of four - makes it much harder to balance. But it's so fun and so addictive!

When I saw that it just had two wheels -- whoa! Scary! I'd totally try it and fall on my ass.

Look at you with your cutie little flower in your hair. By the way, I heart your hoodie so much. Where did you get it?

Stacy said...

way fun. I am impressed that your only made your self bleed and didn't not break any bones. I would have!

brie said...

Lana, you silly girl, they *do* make them in pink! I wanted one, but for B's sake, picked a gender neutral color.

(I've falled hardcore twice more, btw, but no bleeds - just scrapes!)

Kara said...

Wow - two wheels? I'd kill myself. I can't even skateboard with four wheels! Props to you!

Kara said...

PS - Like JB said, you look super cute with your hoodie and your flower in your hair! Hot mama!

K, almost bought the kiddos one yesterday...but sprots are starting up and I am a mean momma and don't want broken bones.

You look hot on that stick...go girl!

tawny said...

That looks so fun. I saw that at the WALMART the other day and thought of getting it for John for some occasion, but couldn't think of one coming up(because we po folk). But I know he and his Bro Wade would have a blast on it! Does it work on gravel road? Or just sidewalk? How much? Around 90?

brie said...

Yeah Brookie they work on any kind of road except like dirt or gravel roads. But just regular roads and sidewalks 'n stuff and your golden. And I got mine at walmart for $65ish. Way cheaper there than anywhere else!

HAFC said...

I can barely stand up on a normal skateboard without falling on my ass! I can't believe you can actually stay up! That's pretty incredible. Can B do it too?

Penny said...

You must have been balancing a long time to have the pic be taken from so far away and did someone have to balance you to start it? and then run to take the pic from far away? I am thinking maybe Whit and Big B are all helping you out? However you figured it you are seriously so taking after my side of the family all cute and buff and coordinated!
