Ride of the Week

Emma Garrard/Sierra SunRiley McCarthy and his Rip Stick

Six months; I got it for my birthday.

It’s like surfing and snowboarding, but you can ride it on the pavement. It’s more challenging than a skateboard. It also gets people’s attention because it’s different.

You don’t have to kick; you move it by moving your feet. You can also ride it uphill.

It’s hard to learn at the beginning, but after a while you get the hang of it.

One of my friends had one before me and another had one after I got mine.

I found it in the woods and thought it was cool.
