Having a blast on my first board. I needed motivation to rehabilitate after a car wreck. Lost strength and stamina all over but especially in the core muscle groups. I struggled to make myself get into a gym,and was dealing with depression and all the crap that comes with it. I was looking for another way build body and mind. As I looked around the net it seemed like an explosion of people on electric skateboards. It sparked a desire to move. The idea of an endless wave was very attractive. After a lot of research I bought the Evolve GTR with the 7" All-terrain wheels at the end of Jan this year(2020). The owner looked like he was about my age and I didn’t want to try to DIY (yet). I am in love with the freedom and the board. I recently bought 2 kite board half-hook footstraps from North Shore Inc and am installing one on the rear end the board, I"m going to play with that a bit and see how it works out.
