14:10:12 Hi Andrew, thanks for the opportunity of an interview with you, how are you?
Andrew - elektroskate.co.uk
14:10:22 Hi Guys, i'm fine.
Kai - elektro-skateboard.de
14:10:39 Ok, how do we get started?
14:10:48 Well just tell us, who you are and what elekroskate is.
Andrew - elektroskate.co.uk
14:11:53 We as a company started back in 2005 since then we have been developing electric skateboards ever since.
14:12:19 We are based in Manchester in the UK but sell electric skateboards in Europe, Australia and the USA.
14:12:49 We pride ourselves on the quality of the products we sell and our after-sales care which is why we can offer electric skateboards that come with a full 12 month warranty on the electronics.
14:14:01 Once you have ridden a Elektroskate skateboard you will never look back. They are the lightest, most powerful skateboards on the market.
The new elektroskate range is a quantum leap in electric skateboard design technology, and performance, and promises to revolutionize urban travel. Our Air board is even light enough to perform tricks with.

14:15:49 So how are your decks produced and what wood are they from?
Andrew - elektroskate.co.uk
14:16:31 Our decks are manufactured from candian maple wood which is lightweight, strong, and flexable.

14:16:59 Is there Griptape on it?
Andrew - elektroskate.co.uk
14:17:41 Yes there is griptape, same as a normal skateboard.
Kai - elektro-skateboard.de
14:18:22 Lets talk about the wheeles, what are they made from and whats the difference to normal skateboard wheels?
Andrew - elektroskate.co.uk
14:19:36 Most manufacturers use reclaimed rubber for there rubber alloy wheels which wear out quickly. Our new PU wheels are as soft as the alloy rubber wheels but with the advantage of being much harder wearing. We will also have new rubber alloy wheels available for 400 watt and 600 watt models from March.

14:20:59 I read, you are using brushless motors, tell us why you are using them and what the advantages are.
Andrew - elektroskate.co.uk
14:22:40 We only use brushless motors because they are alot more efficiant and have around twice the torque of brush motors + very high rpm, it is easy to tell if your skateboard is fitted with a brush motors as it will have only 2 wires coming from it, a brushless motor has 6 wires coming from it. To fit brushless motors you have to have digital control box as brushless motors need a digital signal to control them.

14:24:00 Seen.
One remarkable feature of your boards is your remote control - tell us about the shape and the the bluetooth thing.
Andrew - elektroskate.co.uk
14:26:33 Remote control works via bluetooth so there is no interferance, it is easy to use, we also have a new gun type controller avaialable soon which is also bluetooth. Other remote controls on the market for other boards work via infa red which is prone to interferance!!!
Kai - elektro-skateboard.de
14:26:55 Has elektroskate the exclusiv patent of this bluetooth remote for elektro skateboards?
Andrew - elektroskate.co.uk
14:27:09 Yes we have pantent on all parts.
Kai - elektro-skateboard.de

14:27:56 Next Topic. You are shipping your boards world wide. Are the any resellers espacially in Germany?
Andrew - elektroskate.co.uk

Kai - elektro-skateboard.de
14:29:48 Warrenty. I got some issues with my board, is there a need to send it back to you every time there is a small problem, or is it possible to try to fix the problems by myself without any loss of warrenty?
Andrew - elektroskate.co.uk
14:31:02 Yes our boards are designed so parts are easy to fix and simply replace - bolt on bolt off, if a warranty part ails we can send you the part free of charge.
Kai - elektro-skateboard.de
14:31:53 Sounds good, but how much is the repair service if i have to send my board back to you?
Andrew - elektroskate.co.uk
14:32:44 Depends on the part we charge. £20 a hour labour but we can fix very quickly.
Kai - elektro-skateboard.de
14:34:20 You told us earlier in an email about Jalil Jay Lynch, the stuntman who is testing your boards for a Hollywoodmovie. Are there any further information, what the movie is going to be about and how your board will be used in it?
