“One segment of American culture that has been increasing in popularity for years is the extreme sports area.  Skateboards have not seen a lot of changes since the 1970’s…until now.  A few new products have hit the market to challenge your notions of conventional skateboarding.  If these products (Rolls Rolls Skateboards and Flowlabs Flowboard) are revolutionary or just cool remains to be see but do you think that they will catch on with the kids who they are intended for?  Is this for the hardcore skater or the casual skater? Are there any advantages from having these products?  Thoughts? Comments?” (You MUST write 5 sentences or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

    I think that it will catch on because it looks cool and interresting to look at so they can buy it.

    i dont reallty think it will catch on. to me it seems like it would be really complicated to skate on that type of skateboard. It also looks like it would be really exspensive. I dont really understand how you would turn it , it looks really hard to turn. I dont think it will catch on.

    Really i dont think its a good idea. It looks dangerouse. But it does look cool, again though i dont think people will let there children have this, well they might. And the original skateborde is better i would think you ccould do more tricks on it. But hey thats just me..

    That seems……SO COOL!!!!!!!!!!!
    I’m not a really good sk8er but still,
    I would love one of them.
    I think once the kids see the commercial’s for these,(If they sell them or not…)
    They’ll beg their parent’s for one! (I know i would…. lol)
    I think that the new Flow boards are for more hardcore skater’s then casual sk8ters.
    So what if they are more hardcore,
    it’s just a better chance to master sk8ting and making it more possible to even go pro!
    Plus!, if your really good at Snowboarding,
    You’ll be great at this! The smooth turn’s Make it seem like your still snowboarding!

    I think that kids are so interested in these items because theirs always room for improvement and they see new items coming out and they jump on it, rather if it works or not.

    i think they will not catch on because most skaters like origanal. They are a dumb invention to me because they are like kidish and some little kids will probley try them but wont stick with them. They might be cool and popular for a little bit but they are just like those 2 wheel ones i forgot what its called. It might make money for a month or 2 but not for long as said skaters mainly like origanal.

    Um. It’s possible It could be a good idea but too me It’s not because it’s just a skate board. But it does look pretty cool skate boards to skate on. People probably can have a good time on them. This skateboards are for the hard core skateboarders because they are more advanced skateboarders. And know what they doing. But It looks cool but dangerous. You could break your neck on those skateboards. Accidents do happen.

    I think this product will not catch on pretty fast because i think that some people don’t really know how to skate. So they would be like no they will not buy something they can’t do. Anyway it would be very hard to try to learn how to skate on a kind of board made that kind of way. Sometimes skating can be kind of hard. people don’t want to feel unsafe. especially if it is their first time trying to learn on one of those new boards. if people want to learn how to skate i prefer them to get someone proffesional to teach them how to skate.

    i think this product would catch on fast because there r so many skaters out there know. i think its for hard core skaters because its a new style and they will learn how to do it quickly. there are andvantages because they will sale quickly. people will get a lot of exersize. If they dident sale how much money will we loose. they are cool.

    Ithink this skate boards are for the hard core skaters this is a more harder skate board to use. An advantage is that people could get hurt and fall and los their balance. Maybe some people wont seem so safe because it looks kinda hard to skate on. And a little more difficult.Another advantig is the cost beacause it looks a little expensive.

    i think it will catch on with the advanced skateboarders that has more skills because it looks hard to do if you are a newbie at skateboarding but that’s from me because i am not into skateboarding and i will never will be. also that looks like some weird board wheels and boards to ride and looks like the pros will have to practice a lot to master that board. that’s what i have to say about the boards

    i think its a pretty good idea for the skateboarders. If they like rip sticks then they will like these ones. I think after everybody hears about these and they will get one. they would probably stop riding cars, and buses and would ride that thing every where. i probably wouldn’t ride one daily but it’d be cool to have one.

    These should catch on because of it’s catchy design. It is better for hardcore skaters because it has a more hard design. Kids will think the same because of it’s soon popularity. So, these skateboards bought from the past will be popular for everything. It may even just be these designs. The old ones like ours will be gone for good.

    If you care about my opinion skate boarding is the most stupid least fun to watch and least developed sport in the world.people like tony hawk could do that stunt on an original skate board it does not make one lick of since it doesnt matter.they just make those fancy desighns to draw hungry for stunt teens that will pay big mony for a rolling peice of drift wood.

    I think that it can be for any one that chooses to have that type of skate-bored if they like it because no one can tell another person what he or she likes or what they can have so to me it really doesnt have to be for a certain type of person or which kind of skate-boreder you are it can be anyones choice. But many skaters maybe would buy this skatebored b/c maybe they thinks its the latest style or is better than anyone elses And no i dont think that it will catch on to the kids i suppose that it depends on what there into now days .

    yes it think it will catch on to the kids that it is intended to because they will want to try something fun and cool. another reason i think it will catch on is because it is new and all the kids will want to buy it. i think it is probably intended for the hardcore skate because it wont be hard for them and they will know how to skateboard with it so it will be fun for them.

    I don’t think it really would change any thing. It can be used by anyone but some people are just better skaters than others. It could be used as a prize at a skate competition. It is a new invention created ny a creative person. That is my op ion.

I also may not buy one, but if i had a friend that i had one, i would try it out before i would go to the store, and buy one for myself.

    I think it will catch on.But to me the skate boards and things they made back then where better then the ones they make today.I think that if they where made in a different way that they would have sold more back then and right now.But their is one good thing about people coming out with new ways to make them and how they look is.That we have some new things to try and ant just sticking to the old ways we are moving up in a good way.

    I think its a cool idea i guess. It seems fun to ride on a skateboard like that. But it also looks difficult. I think the skateboards that people ride now are probably much easier and better then those. I honestly don’t think its that great of an idea. It looks like it would be too difficult to do tricks on.
