Electric Skateboarding As a Mode of the Motorized Skateboard

Pumping is so pathetically 1990’s. Get over it. No more kicking on that board to get you around! The skateboards of the future are all electric.

2 years gone I saw something on the web that absolutely changed my life!
A saw a clip about electric skateboards. Since then I have had at least three different boards, which is as much a tribute to how much I adore these babies. But I still keep purchasing new boards or buy parts for the old boards.

So what is so great about an electric skateboard?

They’re very fast. When you zoom around you have a tendency to look forward (obviously), meaning you never see your feet. It somehow feels like your gliding 6 inches off the street. The furthest I got was a fourteen mile ride.

You control the board with a pistol grip controller that controls the acceleration and regenerative braking. It is pretty simple to ride a electric skateboard even if you have never ridden a skateboard before. If you ask me, it is a lot less complicated than a regular skateboard as you always have both feet on the deck. The only downsides of the electric skateboard are that they break fairly easily and go slowly up hills. The brand I recommend is, E-Glide.
E-Glide has a very good warranty policy. The boards also come with a six month battery warranty.

Altered boards have a cool wireless controller, but the boards are made in China and the customer service isn’t the best.

E-Glide, on the other hand are very dedicated and care what they are selling. E-Glide focuses on only using top of the range components to build their electric skateboards. Additionally they’re the only electric skateboard company who does not import premade powerboards from China.

I personally ride the E-Glide “44 Magnum” a Madrid board designed by Crossbow USA. Until somebody invents the Hover-board, these babies are it!!!.
