Surfing the grass waves in Northern Ireland
I've had mine for 1 month.. I joined the forum 1 year ago and it took that long to pull the pin.. I always thought there was more important and practical things to spend the money on.. The second I did my first carve I totally forgot about the money.. And to be honest I'm thinking how I can get a second board for friends and family.. I think about riding all day and my girl friend calls it the love of my life... All true..
Life is for living, you only get one shot at it so get what you want and be happy 😀😀😀😀
@PINGMAN that's what I thought until I forked out for this awesome piece of kit.. worth every penny.. I also think the price will keep the onewheel exclusive.. only the seriously devoted will have them.. I mean, the last thing I would want to see is kids all over the place riding them, making them a joke.. keep the price high and the warranty amazing.. just saying!
Just gave in after many months of fighting the urge not to order a onewheel.
So it's ordered and will be with me on Monday. So I'm happy and broke!
Love to hear from anyone near me that wants to ride together ..anyone near Belfast or Bangor?
@groovyruvy sounds amazing. I dream of riding with other onewheels. Well when you decide to come over I have a spare room..!! I'll be closer to you next month as I have a work trip to Vegas.. All work so no time to use my onewheel even if I could bring it..
I used to cycle in races that had mass starts. 1500 bikes all starting together. Imagine if we could get all 8000 onewheels together for a ride up the coast. That would be great craic.. Banter would be off the charts!!
@McFly yeah. You have lots of toys. No need for the onewheel if it's going to stop you playing. I've been snowboarding for 20 years and in that time I've never been able to replicate that feeling until now,, I can see me riding the onewheel everyday until I'm not able to or too old..
@thegreck sorry,, we did get a bit off track yesterday. But hold on..... @groovyruvy and I are trying to bring the onewheel world together. This is history in the making. Ireland rider comes to LA for first transatlantic meet!! 😏😜
@groovyruvy I agreed.. Get pads and ride with confidence. I'm nearly 50 and never want to grow up. I take pride in riding flat out past all the cool kids on my snowboard ..
@hustle I've used one for years to lock my snowboard at lunchtimes. I guess if someone wants to steal a snowboard they will pick someone else's that's not locked up. So I guess it's a good deterrent. Hopeful the same for onewheel. But I agree I wouldn't leave it locked with this for very long periods
This idea has been around for a while.. and it's a great one..
we had ideas like,
100 mile ride outs for charity, planning charge stops along the way..
Mass start on the wall of china
Lots of ideas but because we can't fly with onewheel we are pretty limited..
I recently travelled from Ireland to LA and a good friend had to lend me one of his boards for LA meet ups..
@1woman1wheel riding switch is all about practice. On a snowboard you need to spend 25% of your day switch.. You really need to force yourself and it comes in the end. It makes you so fast riding normal stance.. I'm getting my onewheel next few days and will use the same method.
