Hi everyone, I wanted to introduce myself and let you all know how excited I am to find this forum.
A week ago I was out for a walk with my family and saw a kid on a skateboard coming in the opposite direction. I noticed he was coming uphill…then I noticed he wasn’t pushing. I had never seen this before, and I immediately went home and looked up electric skateboards, and haven’t been able to think about much else since.
I saw some boards I wanted to buy, but figured I could probably build one and then found this forum. It’s informative and I’m loving the mentality here (build a better quality board vs buy the hype … yeah, I almost pulled the trigger on a gtr that first day lol).
So I’m learning the terminology and trying to understand the basics before I start planning a build, but I’m looking forward to sharing my progress when the time comes.
