I know Tynan is big on his electric skateboard and I recently sent him an email after finding this Kickstarter skateboard online. They are way, way ahead of their funding goal so it will get produced. Looks to be drastically lighter than Tynan's board and it doesn't use a hand controller. Tynan suggested I post it for the community, so in honor of your rollout of SETT here's my first post.
Tynan, the site looks great, and I think it's a great idea!
I was seriously considering an electric skateboard, but they can't take being used in the rain. Not much of a problem in LA, a bit of a problem in SF and a big problem in Seattle :(
Actually, since it looks like it's not on the market yet, I think my friend was probably just talking about a normal skateboard called z-flex :). Looks damn cool though, just wish battery technology would get way smaller and lighter soon..
As soon as I saw the video, I knew I had to have one. Displayed before me on my screen was a guy carving around in a parking lot at twenty miles an hour on an electric skateboard. It was a beautiful thing.
Years prior Mystery had goaded me into riding a Segway.

I recently bought a revive skateboard deck and I really like it so I made video review on it.
Here is my review
