Win a Shred Sled

ShredSled We have a winner.....#4!  Beth from CA!  Thanks for reading and entering.  Please check back as we will have some really neat giveaways for the remainder of the year.

Over the course of my lifetime I have: skateboarded, inline skated and snowboarded.  Surfer Guy does all that as well as, y’know, surf.  So when I was offered the opportunity to review a Shred Sled, I was all over it.  I tried it, yes…Yes, I did.  I tried it and if I didn’t have two babies and a to-do list about a mile long, I may have mastered it.  However, I pride myself in doing things efficiently.  So, I grabbed the Shred Sled and walked across the street to Seth’s house.  Seth is 13 and a wicked good skateboarder.  He also doesn’t have to worry about breaking something and then having to fly his mother out to take care of his two toddlers while he is laid-up.  Seth graciously offered to be my Shred Sled Tester stand-in.  So off he went….Whipping down the street.  Then, I was totally thrown off by what happened next: He skated back up the hill towards me without having to take his feet off the board to “push off”.  This is the beauty of the Shred Sled, you use your arms, hips and whatever else, to create the motion that propels you!
So, you ask: What is a Shred Sled?  It’s the next generation caster board and first 4-wheel inline, dual-deck board.  Instead of pushing off the board like aShredSled2 regular skateboard, riders use their hips, legs and arms to move The Shred Sled, similar to movements used to propel surfboards and snowboards.  It really combines skateboarding, surfing and snowboarding into one unique sport.   The Shred Sled is great for strengthening kids' legs and waist muscles and encourages them to get off the couch and get active outdoors.  The Shred Sled is appropriate for kids ages 8 and up.
So back to my stand in tester.  Seth’s feedback is that it is cool, fun to whip around in circles and generally cool for carving.  Carving is a snowboarding term where you use the edges of the board to “carve” down the hill.  However, he said he wouldn’t give up his skateboard for a Shred Sled.  In my opinion, it’s a fun variation on all the board sports.  You can jump out your front door and just go for it.  No need to find snow or waves.  Speaking of waves, Surfer Guy went surfing on his way home from the office today.  When he got home, he took one look at the Shred Sled and told me not to wait up for him.  He’s been out there for about 45 minutes now ripping it up in the ‘hood.
Check out the video to see the Shred Sled in action.  Then keep reading to win!
