and push…

I set this site up to help those interested in getting into longboarding or e-boarding (especially the youthful older ones like me, who may not have skateboarded for a long time :->) and to highlight some of the less well-known small time longboard makers, including many Europeans, who are making this sport and pastime a real joy right now.

I have tried to capture all the various things I have learned in taking up longboarding and e-boarding to help anyone else looking to take it up – which I thoroughly recommend, it is a lot of fun.

There is no commercial intent behind this site and I make no money from it and get no freebies – this is just me rambling on and trying to help.



I am no longboard, or skateboard, expert; just someone who has taken it up later in life (a dad with two boys who, thankfully, let me longboard with them) and learned much on the way.

We live in London in the UK and longboard, both traditional push and electric, around the local neighborhood or when we go traveling.

Sad to see Yuneec Boards no longer made

    Sadly it looks like Yuneec has stopped making e-boards (although I have found no official statement). They are still making their other products, drones etc., it seems that they have just stopped selling their e-boards. I say “sad” as we have had one of the first-gen boards and it is still going strong, it … Continue reading Sad to see Yuneec Boards no longer made

New Electric Conversion Units

I have just found a new European maker, Ride Unlimited, based out of Barcelona. Interestingly they produce both complete e-boards and units to convert existing decks. Three models, of conversion units, are available (pre-order for spring 2018 right now): a “Solo” single hub-motor and battery unit, single hub-motor but double battery “Cruiser” unit, and a double battery … Continue reading New Electric Conversion Units
