Scooter Tips and Tricks


If you have a big bro like me, he may be asking Santa for a scooter this Christmas. If he is lucky enough to get one, he will soon be looking for some scooter tips and tricks.

Scooters are so popular as a cool way to travel about, but are also really good to learn tricks on too. You might have a scooter park near you which is a perfect place to practise.

Here are some great scooter tips and tricks to try  – and also a guide to the different types of scooters that are available.

Top Tips:

1. Make sure you wear the right safety and protective gear.

2. Ride and practise your scooter tips and tricks only on private land, in skate parks, or public parks.

3. You cannot ride or use your scooter on roads, in crowded areas, or on public footpaths.

4. Please remember to be careful, to keep safe, to be aware of other people but most of all, HAVE FUN!

  2. Some good tips, my sons would love to see this post and the tricks. Definitely remember to wear and helmet and other safety gear, the boys go as fast on a scooter as they do on their bike. When Ben fell off once he took a chunk out of his helmet, thank god it wasn’t his skull.

  17. My 3 year old loves to stand and push scooters, he just doesn’t quite get it yet. I’m not sure I could convince him to wear a helmet consistently so I’m quite glad really as we would be having stand offs in the park resulting in scooter confiscation. I see my future oh so clearly!
