Electric Skateboard


THE DAYS OF PUSHING YOURSELF WITH YOUR FEET COMPLETELY OVER THANKS TO A NEW SKATEBOARD. ALL ELECTRIC AND IT’S GOT PLENTY OF KICKSTARTER BACKERS. COURTNEY DEMPSEY VOLUNTEERED TO TRY IT OUT THIS MORNING. ALL RIGHT. WHEN YOU SAY VOLUNTEER, — HERE’S THE THING. I KNOW MY LIMITATIONS AND I ALSO KNOW MY LANE. SO I KNOW WHEN SOMETHING IS OUTSIDE OF MY EXPERTISE. THAT’S WHY I BROUGHT MY FRIEND KRISTI TORRINGTON. GOOD MORNING! GOOD MORNING. OKAY. THIS IS REALLY COOL. IT’S CALLED THE LOU. THE LOU. HE IS THE ONLY SKATEBOARD YOU’LL EVER NEED. WHETHER YOU ARE A PRO SKATEBOARDER OR BRAND-NEW TO IT. YOU CAN WRITE THIS ON THE RAMPS AND YOU CAN ALSO WRITE IT UP A HILL. Reporter: THIS IS CRAZY. SO HERE’S MY QUESTION. IT’S ELECTRIC. OBVIOUSLY YOU HAVE TO CHARGE BUT I MEAN IT’S GOT A LITTLE WEIGHT TO IT BUT YOU YOU STILL SAY THAT LIKE SKATEBOARDERS THAT LIKE TO JUMP STUFF AND RIDE RAMPS IT’S STILL GOING TO WORK EVEN WITH THE LITTLE BIT OF WEIGHT? WILL — IT WILL BECAUSE IT MOVES SUPER EASILY AND IT FLOWS REALLY NICELY. PEOPLE GOING UP JUMPS AND DOING THEIR KICKBACKS AND EVERYTHING. STILL ABLE TO RIDE IT TO WORK. THIS IS PERFECT FOR THE PEOPLE IN MIDTOWN TRYING TO COMMUTE TO WORK. SO COOL. THE KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN DID IT’S THING. ACTUALLY MADE MORE THAN IT NEEDED TO ACTUALLY GET THIS THING GOING. YES. THEY MET THEIR GOAL IN THE FIRST COUPLE OF DAYS. JUST BECAUSE THIS THING IS SO AWESOME. SO MUCH FUN. I AM A CONVERTED SKATEBOARDER NOW. BECAUSE OF THE LOU. Reporter: IF YOU CHARGE THIS FOR TWO HOURS YOU CAN RIDE FOR OVER NINE MILES. YOU CAN RIDE FOR TEN MILES. Reporter: AND YOU SAY IT IS SMOOTH? A VERY SMOOTH RIDE. VERY FUN. Reporter: I SAY WE TAKE IT FOR A SPIN. READY. Reporter: I AM A — I COULD NOT FIND A CRAB BUT I DID FIND A LOBSTER. ALL RIGHT. THAT WILL WORK. Reporter: THERE IS GOING TO TAKE IT FIRST BECAUSE MY NERVES ARE BAD. KRISTI YOU ARE WELL VERSED ON THIS THING. LET ME GET USED TO THE JOYSTICK. YOU USE THE JOYSTICK TO GET THIS THING TO GO. JUST GO FORWARD. BACK IS TO — YOU WANT TO EASE ON THE BRAKES. AND THEN REVERSE PUSH DOWN. KIND OF LIKE A STICK SHIFT. OKAY. YEAH. LARRY! Reporter: YOU READY? HERE WE GO. MARY. LARRY DOES NOT HAVE THE ABILITY TO TILT AND WHATNOT. SO I CAN’T MAKE SKATEBOARD TURN. Reporter: AS YOU CAN SEE KRISTI IS ROCKING IT. IT’S GOT TWO SPEEDS. NORMAL AND WHAT I CALL BREAK YOUR NECK. SUPERSPEED. 23 MILES AN HOUR. WHOA! AND I’M NOT WEARING MY HELMET SO I’M NOT GOING TO GO 23. Reporter: WE ARE SMART GIRLS. CAN YOU DEMO THE REVERSE FEATURE? YEAH. COMES TO A STOP. AND THEN [ BEEPING ] STUCK ON A HILL BUT HOW ABOUT — SEE? SHE WILL KICK ON YOU. Reporter: THIS IS WHY. KIDS, WEAR YOUR HELMETS. ELBOW PADS. AND KNEEPADS. THAT’S THE THING. IS YOU’VE GOT YOUR BALANCE BECAUSE SHE WILL KICK OUT FROM UNDER YOU. THIS IS THE TOP LEVEL AND SO THE OTHER LEVELS ONE POINT OH, AND 2.0 THEY GO UP TO 17 MILES AN HOUR SO IF YOU ARE NEWER I WOULD SAY GET ON THAT BOARD. ONE OF THOSE BOARDS. AWESOME. IF YOU EASE UP SLIGHTLY THEN YOU CAN SCOOT ON INTO IT REAL NICE. Reporter: MARY. KEEP GOING. COME ON, LARRY. I THINK I TURNED LARRY’S BATTERY OFF. OKAY. HERE’S THE THING. WE’RE GOING TO GET THE HANG OF THIS. IF YOU WOULD LIKE MORE INFORMATION WE’RE GOING TO LINK THE INFORMATION TO OUR WEBSITE. GOODDAYSACRAMENTO.COM. IT’S THE LOU! THE LOU. COMING TO THE STREETS NEAR YOU. BACK TO YOU. Reporter: LARRY! WEIGHT! THAT’S A GOOD DEVASTATION. IT SHOWED HOW IT CAN BE
