Local girl launches new company

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A new San Diego based company just launched its line of balance boards. What's so impressive, is the CEO is only 8 years old!

Ripples Turquand, a La Jolla second grader, developed Milkshake Balance Boards with the help of her dad. 

They launched a Kickstarter campaign and raised well beyond the $3,800 they were asking for.

More than 100 boards have already sold. They'll be available to the public next month. For more information go to milkshakeboards.com.
