A reader suggested providing a bit of a summary so here we go. (this is going to take me some time so bear with me)
I know this blog is about making a electric skateboard but you could buy one of the two good quality longboards that have put a lot of time effort and money into developing something that is reliable and fun to ride. Why these two? Because they have great quality boards, components etc as opposed to the cheap Chinese imports that everyone else is producing.
- http://evolveskateboards.com.au/ (been making quality boards for quite a while with good reveiews from people whove ridden one, Still haven’t got around to it personally so I can’t comment)
- http://www.boostedboards.com/, Got a lot of press from a well executed kick starter. my blog post about them and an update here. They haven’t launch just yet.
If you’re reading this blog so your probably not going to buy a board but I have to put it out there cause it will save you time.
