hey there, i’m either super novice about skateboarding AND electronic/mechanic, but i love to learn. i discovered electric skateboard because of casey neistat about 3 weeks ago, and i’ve NEVER heard about it before. I first wanted to buy one because i walk a lot and it looks pretty fun, but i wanted something much smaller than a longboard, so i can carry it arround, like a cruiser. didn’t find any electric cruiser to buy on the market, and most of the suppliers don’t ship in europe anyway.
we thought with a friend that it would be a great opportunity to start a business. we basically want to take orders from french people interested of buying an electric skateboard who have “specifics requests”, then we buy what we need, what the client wants, and ship it to him. the client buys exactly what we ordered to build it + the shipping + i don’t know… 30% of the total price for the labour…?
i suppose that i am the 9999th to came up with this idea, but not in france i guess… so here is my question:
can we start from nothing and learn everything about electronic and mechanic by ourself (internet), or we really need to have studied/worked in electronic/mechanic to make this project run correctly ?
thanks for reading me.
ps: i suppose we would not drown under orders in the beggining.
