RE: Beginner Seeking Guide: Riding On The Street
Great questions OP
You asked all the ones I had for me ;-)
As I eagerly await my first board of any kind since I was a teen (early 30s now) I am both growing more excited and a bit anxious over the falls that will undoubtedly occur.
Another question for the experienced riders...
How worried should we newbies really be of sudden cut offs and/or nose dives? Are they truly 99% of the time human error or is there a real threat of getting tossed on pavement for not fault of your own. That's the main thing as I read throw all the forums that worries me.
Also...any one wheel couples aka those who now ride with their wife or gf? Any tips on precautions for over zealous better halfs? Proactive question for someone who has a wife that will need hers not too long after I finally get mine I'm sure...
Overall my plan is to practice daily in a large park by my house that has both tons of grass and paved walkways until I'm bored before I take it to the public streets...
RE: Real world range for 230# rider....
Can't get in that linked thread for some reason. Anyone else have that problem?
Found the hardware featured in the pic though. Is the green box just acting as as charge adapter? Looks like the lightest portable battery option I've seen. Any downside? You said it doesn't need to the FM charger so does that break the warranty?
RE: The Onewheel Treatment
Nice vid man!
If I could do it all over again, I may have gone your route...but the v1 then get the v2 summertime after the preorders are filled. Instead....I wait!
Been a long time since I've been on a board of any kind besides Bosu balls and what not at the gym so a lil anxious over the learning curve so this was great!
and PS. Nice choice with old school Bonobo for the background music ;-)
New guy here...as I wait for my first ever OW+ to arrive in April...
I've read so many forums on this awesome community board and am both super pumped and a lil anxious as I'm in my 30s and really not trying to hurt myself too badly!
I am not a snowboarder, but skated around town more for transport than tricks back in the day.
Seems so far based on the other review thread, that this thing is easier to pick up as a first timer on OW...however, curious for more opinions from you OP, on your first time OW experience on the OW+.
