The future is now! While Back to the Future still has the one-up on us with McFly’s hoverboard, electric skateboards are the next best thing. Yep, it’s exactly what it sounds like. Electric skateboards with a motor attached make for an amazing ride around town whether you’re looking for an adrenaline fix, calming down after a long day, or just commuting to work. Easily rechargeable, easy to control even for those of us who don’t ride a skateboard or longboard, saving gas money, utilizing simple remotes, what’s not to love about these things? They handle just like a standard longboard would, with the exception of you not having to do any of the pushing. Throw a backpack on, put a six-pack of your favorite non-alcoholic beverage between your feet and make a day of it or just cruise to your classes in style. Take your new (slightly less romantic) magic carpet for a spin and make all the ladies swoon. Electric boards are the wave of the future, so you might as well get ahead of the Joneses and buy one now.
