Hell no. Ripstick isn't better than anything.
there not much different they go the same speed but the g is much bettter for grinding
I think a ripstick is sooooo much better in my opinion because I have no idea what a wave is and i finally learned how to ride a ripstick an now i REALLY want one!
The better ripstick to start with when your a beginner is to start out with a big sized ripstick. Once your good enough, you can move on to a smaller one. I own both of them and ride them almost everyday! Love it!
The skateboard goes faster if the skateboards wheels are good and fast than the skateboard will go faster than a ripstick.
the skateboard is cheaper and is better for balance and the ripstick is the opposite of that
The Ripstick G has a metal part to grind on.
