Hi I was wondering if anyone prints ninjaflex because I would like to make a timing belt for an electric skateboard and Id like to try 3d printing it. I have seen other people 3d print ninjaflex pulleys and the like so it should be possible.

Would actually be cheaper to purchase the proper timing belt from AliExpress.com.
ninja flex can be difficult to print and doesn't have the resolution/finish of other filaments, for a timing belt you would need fairly accurrate tooth profile . If you have an STL I can take a look

Yes, and timing belts usually have a mesh embedded inside the rubber to give it strength.

yes good point and to stop them from stretching, because then the timing will be out
