    hope you like it ! share and have fun :D



  • Hard to imagine it's your first time ;-)



  • it is ! maybe 20 minutes after we powered it up and discovered how to engage/disengage.



  • @okp Amazing for a first ride! You're moving at a pretty decent clip, too!



  • Is that tape on the deck?
    Did you scrape your fingers at all?



  • Here is the new BOSS :)



  • So Now I need to one up this. Ha Ha Ha



  • hey, thanks a lot mates for upping this :D much appreciated.

    I have to admit that as a electric/non electric skateboard/mountainboard rider, I was quite pleased in a good way with this OW. That was really almost first try. The tape on the deck is to protect it from scrapping as it was lend to me and I like to take care of what people lend me. Scrapping the finger is really difficult as the balance is easy to find.

    If I got the OW still this week, I will go back to this park and make it 2 minutes more which would be the full road. I think this is achievable.

    I really think that it's all about bringing creativity and fun on what we all try to achieve, whatever the level !

    enjoy mates!



  • and during this time, I'm just trying to learn to ride switch :D

  • awesome vid okp. Whats that stuff you have wrapped around your board?



  • thanks, this OW has been lent to me by one friend, so I need to take huge care :)

    I added some glass fiber tape with some neoprene below to ensure I preserve it from any scrapping :)

    I will now go back to ride normally and film some switch as well !



  • I tried that later after watching the video. Pulled it off. Not as fast or as far but it was exciting. You have to be quite flexible and fit



  • yeah, that's definitely not hard to do, just cool to be the first one who did that - I really think riding is all about creativity !



  • I showed my friend that then he did this >>
