If you’re looking for something a bit different to surprise your Valentine this year, I have an unusual and fun suggestion.
I was sent a fabulous Limitless Classic Retro Cruiser skateboard in pink and blue from Skates.co.uk to demonstrate my athletic prowess to the kids.
Whilst the board seems quite small to a novice skateboarder like me, it is incredibly sturdy. The retro cruiser boards come in a huge range of colours and the technical information you need is as follows.
Deck: 22 x 6″
Truck: 3″ high performance aluminium trucks
Wheels: 59x45mm PU wheels
Bearings: ABEC7 bearings
Max Load: 80kg
The board is certainly big enough to take a large adult (cough). Here’s the Husband demonstrating the point, although he’s not a big fan of the pink / blue combo. Caitlin is standing behind him laughing.
Obviously I would suggest full protective gear because as soon as Ieuan put one foot on it, he was flat on the floor!
I am threatening to follow the kids round Cosmeston Nature Reserve on my skateboard when the Husband next takes them out on their bikes. They don’t seem too convinced.
Skates.co.uk also have a great range of scooters, skates and Heelys. There’s free next day delivery and a Price Match Promise to boot (or skate).

If skateboards aren’t your Valentine’s thing, what about
Rio Pure Pink Roller Skates – £44.95
SFR Camden Pink Inline Skates – £39.95
Grit Atom Pink Scooter – £64.95
You have to agree it’s a Valentine’s gift with a difference!
