I've seen some skateboards for sale at the local supermarket for around $50, but the decks were warped, the wheels were a squishy rubber, and the trucks were plastic. DON'T get one of those! If she's 11 and serious about it, get her something that isn't going to break while she's riding. Quality quality quality!
You are right;don't want any accidents or money tossed down the drain. I will check out a specialty store and get a good one and that is the price I figured a good one would cost. Thanks for your help.

Ha Ha, you are a fellow drum head (no pun intended) Her mother bought her one of those small electric pianos at Christmas, has not ben touched yet. Does not seem to have an interest for her except exchanging Justin Beiber mp3's with her freinds besides her mother would kill me.
