"While some other brands make smaller, kid sized boards, SkateXS does the same but with the highest pro grade parts that I've seen on a board sized for kids. When you get a SkateXS complete skateboard, you get real, high quality trucks, wheels, and bearings.
The SkateXS deck is made from bamboo, which isn't the usual (most skateboard decks are made from maple). This makes the decks lighter and gives them more pop. Bamboo is the perfect choice for younger, lighter skaters."
