Sorry, maybe slightly self interest only, but I took this yesterday.. it's one of my (four) boys making his first B/S 5/0.. I just love the grit and determination and he was absolutely over the moon at FINALLY making the coping!

Bless... Remind him how difficult it was to get his first taste of coping in about a year time, when he'll be kickflipping his way in and out of it... :D

Blimey, yeah. Much smaller and he'll be putting wheels in his bearings.

A young child on MAS..........Is that even allowed? :evil:

BTW - that looks lie a backside slash grind not a 5-0 which would be when he's out of the ramp on the coping.

Buy that kid some wheels, surprised he even manages to skate on those bearing condoms.
