Read: 5 mins. My son and I had been tandem riding the adult Evercross H5 eScooter for some time, and I thought that it would be good to get his own to help develop his balancing skills, confidence, and maturity. In this review, I will go over the Gyroor H30 electric scooter that was designed for children aged 6-12, though my 5-year old rode it well by the second day.

Review: Runwave Lotus Flower Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board (iSUP)

By |2021-09-09T22:25:52-07:00Apr 23, 2021 - Friday|Product Reviews, Reviews|0 Comments

Read: 7 mins. Standup paddle boarding had been such great fun while socially distancing amidst the COVID-19 pandemic last year. It helped us bond with our children, and not long after, many friends joined in with boards of their own. Most of them bought the beginner-friendly Runwave Kohala inflatable stand up paddle board (iSUP), but I still found the DvSport Sunshine to be my favorite. Recently, though, one of my female friends purchased the Runwave LOTUS Flower and many of the women in our circle drooled over it. "Cute" or "pretty" were words that most of them expressed. In this review, I took a look at that surprisingly light, very stable, beginner-friendly Lotus iSUP that my sister-in-law also adores!

Read: 5 mins. Do you need a bike repair stand? It may seem insignificant, but working on a bicycle on the ground -- especially a heavy one -- can be difficult and uncomfortable. From laying it upside down to service the gears and brakes, to flipping it back up to look at the shifters and handles, it can get overwhelming with constantly having to stand up, sit down, and position one's body in some odd ways to reach specific parts. A bicycle repair stand is worth it. It saves time, makes it more comfortable, and lowers the risk of getting hurt. In this review, I tested two bike stands.
