@skyman88 thanks for the reply! I hadn’t seen the wiki so will have a good trawl through. Cheers.
Learn and respect the boards ability prior to trying to commute. Pushback is the boards only warning that you’ve reach the peak speed it can safely keep you balanced. So if you keep the board under the 14-15 mph range, you should be good.
I’ve riden in Boston on all the city terrain (old cobblestone, brick, manhole covers, etc...) and the board just eats it up.
Also, the OW requires you to be engaged. Forget the marketing videos of people texting and eating a snack. It’s definitely in your best interest to pay full attention to the ride. My 17 mph nose dive was caused by a divet in the road that I did not see because I was looking at my Apple Watch to change songs on my BT speaker. I wasn’t ready when the board got unsettled and I ended up putting way too much weight on the front end while trying to get my balance back. Pay attention and enjoy the ride. There’s nothing like it.
