Electric skateboards


My commute to work used to be a 15 minutes bus journey which to be honest was full of idiots most days so I decided to start cycling instead. On the bike it would take about 10 minutes (as I could take a shortcut through the park) and although this was far more relaxing, turning up to work sweaty is never a good look. I toyed with the idea of getting an electric bike but and on my search I stumbled across a website that sells electric skateboards! They said that they go 20mph with a 15 mile range (which is more than enough for my commute) so I decided to just go for it and it has changed my commute forever. I now actually go twice around the park on most days just because I can, and although when it rains I still cycle in my commute is now a far more fun place.

I'd be interested to hear if anyone else uses electric skateboard to get to work on, and if you want to have a look at some video of then then the website I got mine from is www.cruisecandy.com

A thinly veiled plug for your website Happy

Those skateboards do look good though - however I'd feel like a complete fool riding around London on one.


Lived in London since 2003, it's alright I suppose.

I just got an elecrtic skate board and it the best form of transport i have ever used, i live about 2 miles form work, the bus is unreliable, it takes about 45 mins in the car with all the trafic at that time in the morning/ the electric skate board gets me there in about 5 mins. Allthough they are a bit hare to get hold of in this country, I managed to track mine down at http://www.edgeriders.com/electric-skateboards-cruiser-adult-electric-skateboard-p-2587.html

Hi There,


In response to Rogerton , I totally agree the electric skateboard is the way forward as it it quicker in rush hour in a London commute than the following...

1. car
2. bus.
3. push bike
4. e- bike
5. Tube

You arrive exhilarated, not sweaty and then can just take you board straight into the office no parking hassles...
Nb .. My route is from Notting Hill to Westminster


The board I ride is a Skate Electric 600 watt although the 400 watt is a great board... Obviously I wear an Open Face helmet for safety...


I really believe if a few of use get behind the electric skateboard vision it would be a good thing for our city and long term our planet.....


Skate Electric has great customer support if you need any servicing it also has kids boards and a sick off roader...


Their website is www.skateelectric.com



Cheers,


Electric Green......

Yo,
I have recently just upgraded my rokit science 600 watt electric skateboard which had a lead acid battery and brush motor. For a new model the 600 watt sport from Elektroskate.I bought it from
www.elektroskate.co.uk It is half the weight of my old 600 watt model and it has a Brushless 600 watt motor and lithium battery the hand controller is slightly different as it is fully digital and works via bluetooth not Infa red like my old Rokit science board.But it works perfectly and has no interferance like my old board.They are not cheap at £600 but the build quality and design is the best Ive seen so far. The speed and power of this things Brushless motor is unbealieveable + I did a 15 mile round comute the other day and the board did not lose any power not managed to run the battery down yet but im planning a longer trip soon just to see how long this thing will keep going for I can't wait!!
