She’s right! It’s a lot of fun! Best speed when you are first starting out is 4.0 – 4.4! Skip on!
I’m a 16 year old male, and despite the fact that through the teenage years people become less and less likely to skip, I still skip everywhere, whenever I can, because I find it fun and it makes me happy. I get loads of weird looks from everyone including my friends, but it doesn’t stop me.

The fact it’s encouraging people to be happy and to skip is amazing. – Alex, London, UK
