This article is the reason how I discovered Onewheel and why I bought one! I almost wish I commuted to work, just so I could use it for that! :) Almost.
I had seen one before in my neighborhood at night, but didn't know what it was.
I'm pretty old and never used safety equipment when longboarding, but I need to use my hands for work so the first thing I got was a helmet and wrist guards. After the second crash I realized I needed elbow guards, and saw enough people using knee pads that I figured I might as well get those too ...
The Onewheel has returned the old skateboarding excitement back!
