Need some help. I'm new


Hi, I’m new to the esk8 community and to electric boarding in general. Was wondering if you guys could give me some tips and ideas about what’s good and what’s not so good tech and item wise. Btw I’m in iowa so also possibly looking for people near to go with.


I would swing over to It’s a lot more active over there.


and/or can you elaborate a bit?
Are you looking for board recommendations or interested in parts for a DIY project?
What are you hoping to get out of a board?

/r/ElectricSkateboarding/ is a decent source for reading up about complete boards… is your best option for ramping up on DIY projects/parts.


Hi @nw-esk8.

If you want help bullding and/or DIY inspiration:
If you want to determine which common brand electric skateboard suits you. I would look at some top 10 (top whaterver) movies on youtube. And then google for some reviews/ videos about that board and determine what best suits your wishes.


Hi @skitzor


Ok thanks for the help and thank you for the site recommendation @Phounus. To the other two yes I’m looking at board recommendations, like I said I’m new to e-sk8 but I’m also new to electric skating in general I don’t have a board yet but I’ve been skateboarding for a couple years now. So thank you for the sights I’ll check it out as soon as I can.
