Longboard: Boosted Board


Until now, I used my bike to get around almost anywhere within my small town, from school and back, to around the college campus, and wherever else I needed to be for work.

The thing about bikes is, there are situations where it doesn't quite cut it. Going longer distances can get tiring, it's difficult to keep up the speed for more than a half hour (no, I'm not that much of a biker), and it's not quite portable enough to be taken indoors or packed into a car when needed. So this fall I preordered a Boosted Board, an electric longboard, to become my main mode of transportation.

The only obstacle: I don't actually know how to ride the damn thing.

Here we go.
