Some New Wheelz

My 13 year old son Brennan recently discovered the joys of skateboarding during his Spring Break. First he tore up the house up looking of his old skateboard; you know, the one he never used and I threw out just before we moved houses last April (Shhhhh!). So he picked up an inexpensive new board a few days ago, then quickly ordered new wheels, that could handle the streets of Michigan a little better (his words, not mine, I know nothing about skateboarding, the closest I come to skateboarding is wearing Vans).

The new wheels arrived on Wednesday morning, and he quickly set about finding tools to change them out. I for one have no idea how to replace wheels on a skateboard, but he seemed to jump right into it. “How the heck do you know how to swap out wheels on a skateboard?” I asked. “I just watched some videos on YouTube last night.” Oh.

With that he took over the kitchen and started the procedure. Since I was bored on yet another cold rainy Spring Break day, I grabbed my camera for some quick shots of the process, followed by a brief street test in the cool morning rain.

Thanks for looking.
