I purchased this wheel from @Jason McNeil about 3 months ago for my sons birthday, but had to wait until (1) his actual bday (4/28) and (2) the most important part, he was supposed to save half the money :thumbup:.  Anyway, it all came together today and go figure, it took him about 20 mins to be up and rolling, seriously not fair!

nice!

kids are so incredibly fast in learning....

But please: Give him kneepads, also. Even on the minimalist fall...you allways land on your knees!

I should have known that my kids would figure it out quickly, they had no trouble on the hoverboards or ripsticks...<_<

There's something about the way kids handle the eucs so fast... Maybe the center of weight? :)

I find it crazy to think of how much effort we put into helping each other with advice on how to learn to ride these things and then a kid tries it and it's like no effort?  Seriously, I was so ready to help my boys with everything I've learned from this forum about being a new rider and they needed almost no help whatsoever.  I'm not complaining (well, I guess I am a little) I'm just a little surprised.  I'm glad that I didn't spend money on a "toy" that is just going to collect dust in a corner of a room, that's for sure!

In case you missed it (posted in the General Forum), here's a pic from yesterday morning of my son getting in a few minutes on his wheel before school, walking the dog in the rain :thumbup:

I just wanted to share that learning to ride on the side walk and driveway is hard.  You need a large area to wiggle and flap.   Someone on youtube mentioned soft grassy field (very short grass) like a soccer field.  The soft turf doesn't damage you and your vehicle as much  That's where I finally learned to ride.  The second thing I realized was to force both knees to clamp the EU when it starts to wobble or lean.

Kinds have a low center of gravity and much less mass. No magic formula. If I was 3 feet tall and 75 lbs vs 5,1 and 190.

simple physics. Yes kids can balance much easier. 

Good, I'll be using this against him in our nightly trash talking sessions about who is better on their EUC...much appreciated @Carlos E Rodriguez :laughbounce2:

:blink:  Five year old?  Holy cow that's a small rider.  I'm amazed... :efefae4566:  Get some videos up!  :popcorn:  I think she might be the youngest I've ever heard of riding an EUC.  Next thing you know people will be strapping babies on these things!  Madness I tell you, madness!  :laughbounce2:
