‘The Commute on an electric skateboard’..

Skate Electric -‘ the commute’ with the electric skateboard where I had a ‘meeting’ with David Cameron @ The Houses of Parliament… This was shot recently from Notting Hill to Westminster (5 miles) all on a wireless electric skateboard. and took 23 minutes!! This is quicker than a car, tube and bus – zero emissions, alternative way to get to the office!!!

  1. iv got the 8ball cruiser 2. it is SO fun! AND so practical for getting around town. so much quicker than walking or getting the bus. I had doubts when ordering, but its one of the best things iv ever blown money on. weight is the only downside, but im getting used to that. some people say longboards, or electric boards aren’t real skateboards cos you can’t do tricks, but they are two different things, meeting two different requirements, these get you somewhere, and quick!

  2. @XLRO8 it was an amazon job – but that was a year ago now! Since then the battery has given up on me, although they’re only meant to last about a year. It served me well though, and saved me a lot of bus fares. I’m checking out new models now, but may wait until spring to buy another one – I won’t get too much use of it over winter.

  3. Hi check out ELEKTROSKATE BOARDS they have the most powerfull and lightest boards on the market with high torque digital brushless motors and WIRELESS 2.4 ghz remote controls. Full 1 years warranty designed in the USA. they also offer a discount for non Euro customers. I have tried them all ES are the best by miles

  5. @williamsingleto Thanks a bunch, I do a lot of commuting on my longboard already but this could certainly up my range. Your set up sounds the most legit of the ones of come across.

  6. @asweeatsugar ….mine is the 600 watt EMAD sidewalk surfer. I upgraded to Lithium Ion batteries. It has a 40 mile range and goes 20 mph. I use it to get to work and I have been for 4 months. No breakdowns or complaints. This is an awsome design and very durable. I save $100+ each month from not using my car hardly at all. I love it! You get used to it real quick too; just start out slow and you will be comfortable in no time.

  7. @samuroid HPD is pretty cool, no hassles if you are respectful. They usually just want to check it out, wishing they had one to patrol on.

  8. @phonix747 They can last many years if maintained properly. The batteries need to be maintained like a car battery. The are rated for 300-400 charge cycles, then have to be replaced. Other common wear and tear parts are the drive wheel tire, inner tube, and drive belt. Check shop.bionicwheels(dot)com for parts prices etc.

  9. that would mean you were going only 3 miles per hour?
    The 11 mile range is realistic and I have been able to go even a little further under pretty ideal conditions: fully charged battery pack, level, smooth surface, average speed of 10-15 mph, fully inflated tires, etc.  If you add hills, rough surfaces, lots of accelerating/ breaking, wind, etc, the range will be smaller.

  11. I just got one yesteryday and it says it has a 11 mile range but I can only like ride with it for and hour and then I drove like 3 miles I think
