A Guide To The Best Electric Skateboards

A new way to cruise from point A to point B, whether you’re a complete beginner with no experience in skating or a veteran skateboarder, an electric skateboard can be ridden by anyone.  It might take a little getting used to if you’re a complete beginner but it shouldn’t take long.  Alternatively, an electric scooter for adults is much easier to ride but is not as compact.

These electric powered skateboards are usually made in the form of a standard skateboard or a longboard.  Electric longboards are longer and tend to have larger wheels, making it more practical for just cruising and riding on rougher surfaces.

The top 3 electric powered skateboards shown in our table above are made by reputable companies who offer a manufacturer’s warranty as per their website, whereas Marui skateboard company appears to be based in China so the warranty offered is not made clear therefore we recommend contacting the seller if this is an issue for you.  Undecided on what one?  Jump straight to our top 3 best electric skateboard reviews for a more in-depth insight.   

The video below will demonstrate how one user found it very easy to ride an electric skateboard as a beginner.  The skateboards used in this video are not the same as the ones shown in our table, therefore some of the features may not be the same.
