    Default 3-wheeled skateboard

    Does anyone remember a sort of skateboard from the 70s that had an extended arm to the left of it and you rode it on your right knee and held the front with your right hand and the extended bit with your left hand. I think it used to be green/yellow in colour but can't remember its name? Does anyone know?

    I didn't own one but a friend of mine did - I fell off it many times tho' and had loads of grazes to remember it by!!!
