When I say we, I am talking about a small group of us. I’m Chris, here on the left. We have been boarding for years, and like everyone, started out on conventional skateboards.
Now I have to confess, that I wasn’t that much in to some of the crazy stunts that some of these guys are in to. I just enjoyed the chilled fun of it all and it made for a cool mode of transport that got me from A to B quite quickly, sometimes beating the commuter rush.
From the skateboard, I soon progressed to the longboard. Loving that, it wasn’t long before I got in to the hoverboard – when it came out. Now that was fun, although not the best mode of transport. For me, the no brainer came about when the longboard got power. I can’t tell you enough how awesome it was to travel at 40Km/h effortlessly.
