“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)

    no i don’t people will catch on because not a lot of people are into skateboarding. and i think that its for the hardcore skaters because the casual skaters wont really know how to use the skate bored.

    Okay, I seriously think this is the future of skateboarding! I think the casual skaters will like the Rolls Rolls better because it’s more like the normal skateboards they ride now. The more hardcore skaters, especially the ones who like surfing and snowboarding, will probably go with the Flowboard. I personally think either would be great because they’re very heavy-duty and I could ride them year round… That is, if I knew how to skateboard, LOL!

    I think it can be for both hardcore and casual skaters. I think this because either way if your hardcore or casual you know how to skate board. This specific skate board may be more intended for the hardcore skaters because they do more crazier tricks. But either one of them can use it!

    i think a causal skater because, what if you cant do know tricks and they can just cruse. i would get it because i skate and stuff to. i do tricks but sometimes i just ride for fun. and i would like that board. and for causal skaters because they can just do what they do ride the flowboard

    i think these are cool, and a lot of kids will catch on to this. this is for kids that are kinda advanced but not really because it has 4 wheels. this will catch on in the market and make a lot of money, especially since its Christmas time and the kids will always ask for the newest toys. this make skate boarding a whole new sport because of the design of it.

    i think its for casual skaters. The board can be beggineirs. You can probably learn how to skate with those kind of boards. Im talking about the low riding one. The other ones are advanced.

    i think that this will catch up because you see boys and girls liking skateboarding this year i assume that this is in style not just with skateboarding more and more you see people dressing in that punk rock stuff and also this will be very good for kids to do because its a sport you get exercise you get to have a hobbie and possibly win an award

    i think that it will catch on because the more that kids see them the more they will want one and it looks pretty cool and alot of kids will see that if they learn how to skate board they will have alot of fun with all of the cool things that skateboard designers are coming up with.so i think that it will catch on so theres my opinion:)..

    I think they will have a great new product that a lot of people will buy. Is will probly make a lot of money from this idea. A lot of kids will catch on to this. It will be a great new product that can make a new sport. These boards are more advanced than the old 4 wheel skateboard.

    i think people won’t buy it. people like the original better. but some people might but it, who knows. i guess it depends on the person who’s buying it. i’m not a fan of skateboarding. people might buy it because it’s new. they might not because they like the original better.

    Kids that skateboard would probably love this. I think that it’s advantages for skateboarders are that they will be able to perform different and better tricks than what they would with a regular skateboard. I think that this is for the hardcore skater. Like the beginners could use the regular skateboard as a start. Then, as they progress and become better and better they can excel onto the other better skateboard. I think it will be a catch.

    i see people all the time skateboarding, but they seem happy with these kind and i have not seen these new kind . I don’t think they will catch on. But i like trying out need products like these, like the rip-stick. i think his is more for the hardcore skater. because it seem more extreme like.

    I THINK THE ADVANTAGES ARE THAT THEY WILL MAKE MORE MONEY. THE TYPES OF PEOPLE THAT WILL BUY THEM ARE KIDS AND THAT IS GOOD SO THEY DON’T GROW UP TO BE FAT. WHEN THESE BOARDS GET POPULAR THEY MIGHT SELL BUT IT WOULD BE HARD TO START SELLING THEM.

    I personally think That those product are totally awesome. They are more for the casual skater because they are for cruising purposes. The advantages that i can see by having these products is that if you need to keep up with the rest of your friends that are skaters. Also, if you are making moving skate videos and need to keep up with the person you’re recording, then this is perfect. I’m going to get one.

    I think this new type of skateboard would catch on to kids. Teenagers more because many of them skateboard. I don’t really skateboard so i won’t buy this product but it doesn’t man I don’t like it. I would try to ride. I don’t really feel that there are advantages

    This is definitely a really cool new skateboard. I think the flow board will make a tone of money, when it catches on. It has an advantage of the motions it gives out when you are riding it. And also it would sell good to the people that love to snowboard or surf. But just like to Cruz.

    i don’t think that it will catch on. but if it does, the advantages are that it would make more money. if people do but it it will probably be more of the hard core skaters. i mean the casual skaters can barley ride a regular skateboard, yet alone a surfboard/snowboard/skateboard. but i really think a lot of people will think that it is stupid and just buy regular skateboards.

    Ok well i mean they look cool but i mean i don’t really skate board so my guess is as good as the next. They look like they would be fun to skate on and stuff but its all up to what the skate boarders think after they use them. The one with like 8 wheels looks like really fake and like it wouldn’t work. But like i mean its hard enough for me to ride a skate board let alone this. But i mean i’m sure the skate boarders who skate board would like them but yah..

    First of all, i think the flowboard will attract a lot of attention because it looks fun and a lot of people will like to try something new. But maybe some skateboarders will probably thing it’s a big waste of time and would just stick to the old skateboards. Second, if your like to snowboard and you can’t, than the flowboard would be close to snowboarding than anything. Third i think the flowboard would make a good training boar for snowboarding if your not good at it. So if your planning to go snowboarding or just like having fun on wheels than maybe the flowboard is just right for you.

    ii think that skaten is not really a sport to some people but to others it is the best sport out there. Me ii feel that it is jus as well as a sport jus like baseball,basketball and any other sport. Buth there is no type of difference from back then and now cause you are on a borad that is connected to 4 wheels……. So yeah…..
