A magnificent and enjoyable way to get outdoors and active is by investing in a micro scooter – they are a classic, entertaining way to get exercise into your daily routine and can be enjoyed by all ages – from children to adults there is something to suit every age and ability.
The festive season is fast approaching, and the search has begun for the latest toys, tech, and 2020 must-haves. Since our lockdown summer saw a boom in sales for inline skates (or rollerblades, if you’re retro!) there’s a good chance you’ll be purchasing a pair or two this year.
Roller skating has a wild history that literally crashed onto the London party scene when, in 1760, inventor Joseph Merlin wore his new metal wheeled boots to a social gathering and literally collided with a rather expensive full-length mirror.
It’s over 20 years since Tony Hawk changed sports sims and the perception of skateboarding in the UK forever. Today, there isn’t a town in the country that doesn’t have a skatepark, where boarders hang out to show off their slappies and perfect a pivot grind. But it wasn’t always this way. Skate culture owes as much to Neversoft and their chosen figurehead as it does to Ollie, Dogtown and punk rock.
