I’ve already googled and read several articles, but not many reference electric boards. I was the kid that built the ramps for the cool skateboards cause I wasn’t coordinated enough. 30 years later I want to give it another go and mix my engineering passion.
My goal is to build a basic proof of concept and make sure I enjoy riding. Then give to my wife and build something a step up.
Neither of us are skaters, so I want a stable board. I was looking a drop down decks and figure at my weight I’d need at least a 8-ply board. Am I correct in this?
Looking at cheap plain decks from $30-$50, I realize you get what you pay for but as a proof of concept board it does need to be fancy just hold me.
