    The name of the scooter?

    Hello Everyone,

    Can you tell me the name of the board?

    I have bought my son a slide board, which is about a 80cm-long and 30 cm wide plastic board with two wheels on its bottom but without handles as the scooter. One can stand on the board and move it through gently swaying his body

    Regards

    Sky

    Could be a waveboard. Skateboards have 4 wheels and are pushed forward with one foot, instead of using body motion alone.

    Wow, I believe that's it. It fits the definition better. Let's wait and see what sky73 has to say.

    I myself think waveboard is more lively than skateboard. But my wife argued with me that my kid's board should not be called waveboard as it is actually two parts which are joined by a metal bar that can move. my wife think that the waveboad is a whole part without the bar?

    No, the waveboard has two boards joined by a bar. The skateboard is just one board.
