It’s no secret that DIE HARD SKATEBOARDERS don’t really respect the guy who rocks up on his electric skateboard bearing the slogan “Life’s Too Short To Push”
Most “skaters” are very passionate about the art they practise… So why the hell would you ruin it with motors and nerdy electronics!
It’s been my personal mission to blend the two tribes into one big happy family… I truely believe that one day the technology will be good enough so that every skateboard will have a built-in propulsion system whilst still be perfectly suited to tricks and more traditional riding styles. Yes Even VERT RAMPS!.. think of the air time you would get!
So it’s a great feeling when the non-powered longboarding community itself hands down some acknowledgement to the Build Your Own Electric Skateboard Movement. Recently Blogger, Longboard reviewer and founder of Reviewlongboards.com David Holmes interviewed me for an article he was working on.
The article is focussing in on the maker movement that has swept across the world in recent years, specifically how new technology is giving anybody professional manufacturing capabilities in their own garage. As us “e-boarders” know, this movement has given us the capability to make our own electric longboards using common equipment found in most homes.
Through research of his own and an interview they did with me, the article goes over the mission of my company and where Enertion Boards is going in the future. You can check out the full text of the article for yourself at Review Longboards.
