How To Ride An Electric Skateboard
Riding an electric skateboard for the first time can be a tricky experience. Especially for beginners who do not have skateboarding experience, the feel and technique are always vital elements you’ll need to master before taking the leap of faith. For those who have skateboarding experience, you certainly have an advantage. However, we want everybody to know that you don’t need experience to learn and master the art of e-boarding!
While we always suggest our Best Electric Skateboards for Beginners article as a place to start for those looking to learn. Your traditional electric longboard is always a great way to start. While mini e-boards are sharper around corners and easy to maneuver, the longboard style has more board decking for added balance and carving as a great way to take your first steps. A few important elements you’ll need to know when riding an e-board include:
✓ Positioning (goofy or normal)
✓ Safety and protection
✓ Terrain and environment
✓ Remote control
