Other results in this sneakers and the real number four. Oh queries it released yet. Yeah actually stealing. She units. And yes have a hover boards. After addressing a rally almost as much skateboards and super. Super surprising I caught up your monitor which stands on market analysis and asked if any Dana. For those sales out of does exist but what we do you have I think might be useful as a ton of data about injuries. So downloaded data for skateboards for scooters. They didn't have a category for hover boards specifically. By paddy. Motorized skateboards and scooters category which definitely includes hover boards you know what I'm wondering is to guess it's fair to use injuries as a proxy for popularity or not is there.
