Wow was I impressed! It’s one of those new products where you ask your self “Why didn’t I think of that”. It’s a new take on an old fashioned skateboard. The video presentation from this new company is awesome! Looks like so much fun to ride it. I’m sure it is. But like all marketing hype, like that which is routinely presented in the fantasy world of viruses and how to get rid of them (as if the body never shits them out) the Devil is in the details.
Watch the video and be WOWed first, then look below for what the tiny little issue is. Hint’ it’s in the title of this article.
The thing is, how the fuck do you propel the thing? You need a third leg. The representation of all the fun they are having is hyped up so massively because in real life you need to propel to have that much fun. The user of this device cannot take one foot off the thing as it would throw it off balance entirely and make it stop instantly. On a skateboard one foot is in the middle of all four wheels. The skateboard remains stable while the rider uses one leg to propel it. With this piece of nonsense/hype which we could acronymize as NS/H you have to have a third leg to really use it like on the beach or on level pavement. The presentation is terribly misleading.
And like wow man. I never knew I would see such a thing sold in the marketplace for a whopping $1499. Have a cow dude.
