A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this website.
Like most social networking sites, there's some rude and nonsensical content on profiles and in comments, but the overall feeling is positive.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
No overt sexual content, but a few of the profiles feature photos of shirtless boys and some cheeky comments.

Products & Purchases
There's an online store selling the Kids Who Rip DVD series. No other ads.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Not widespread, but at least one profile has a drug reference: "Nemo Couldn't Find You Because You Were Out Getting High."

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a social networking site for kids who love X Games-style sports -- snowboarding, kiteboarding, skateboarding, surfing, bike racing, and more. There's a bit of questionable content in the member profiles, but overall it's a positive place for kids with a common passion.
Is It Any Good?
For kids who are into X Games sports, KidsWhoRip.com is a great place to meet kindred spirits, share tips and tricks, and just-plain show off. But it is a social networking site, so your family's standard rules apply here as they do to Facebook. Some kids are posting more on their profiles than they should (full name, for example), and some comments and photos in profiles can be inappropriate. Also, a few more safety reminders would be a welcome addition for the parents of kids who rip.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
