UPDATE: I just published a list of the 5 best electric skateboards you can buy on Amazon — it’s very different from this list and worth taking a look!
Longboards are better with a motor. And there are a surprising amount of skateboards that are electric—with seemingly more popping up every year. It’s getting to the point where it takes some serious innovation to stand out in the electric skateboard field; features like regenerative braking and in-wheel motors. And that’s exactly what you’ll find here: the very best of the best electric skateboards. It’s crazy how each company takes a totally different approach to the same idea and I can really appreciate the time and effort that went into developing these awesome boards. Whether you’re looking to cut down on your commute or just surf the pavement, the coolest electric skateboards are here for you to check out.
