He chose an Almost (Almost is a skateboard brand) complete for about 110 bucks. When I got back to his house, he started skating and tried to do a few basic tricks.
Being a good friend, I taught him how to ride, ollie, shoveit, and the basic mechanics of the skateboard.
We skated at some basketball courts near his house for a few hours, then went home and chilled at the Xbox. It was a fun time!
