An eight-year-old boy gets a skateboard for his birthday, but when his mom—who was a skateboarding queen in her day—tries it out, she has so much fun that she won't give it back.
January 14, 2005 Barbara Odanaka is a stay-at-home mom who skateboards to escape the stress of motherhood and homeschooling her son. She wrote the children's book Skateboard Mom and started a group the International Society of Skateboard Moms. The oldest member is 80.
