I found the e-boards on youtube - since that moment I want to try/buy/own one. The thing is I am from Germany. And e-boards are not that common here. So I guess I am not able to try one first.
I had a skateboard years ago. Last time I was skating I broke my arm … But I hope the feeling of an longboard is better - and easier to handle.
My first thought was to buy a boosted board. But it’s very expensive and also I am big … heavy guy. And I am not quite sure about the max wight limit. Boosted board should also carry 120kg and above. Normal longboards mostly carry only 90kg. I am 195cm tall and my weight is around 120kg … But I will also carry an backpack with notebook and other “office stuff”.
While google’ing boosted boards I found this board. And now I want to build one by my own.
I want to use it for fun - and to go to work. So in the best case it should handle easy, but should be fun. The speed is not that important - but would be nice to run 25km/h Also nice would be if the board is light weight - but as long I can carry it on my backpack it should’t be a problem. The range is the focus I guess … more is better. But at least around 10km.
And I have a lot of questions.
deck: As I already told you I need a strong one. My idea was to buy a used cheap one on ebay - but I don’t know if it is too weak. Or build my one out of plywood or even carbon/fiberglass. Maybe I should go with a good deck made out of bamboo?!
motor: one or two? What is a good recommendation?
electric Not idea yet. … Is there a noob tutorial? (already found this one http://www.electric-skateboard.builders/t/start-here-faq-for-diy-electric-skateboard-builders/215 )
So far so good
Thank you all for your help
