The latest news you find in Electric-Skateboard Forum. got three new boards // August 28

This week a few packages arrived in our office, among other things three new electric skateboards.

2C Boards

The first two boards are from a german manufacturer called 2C-Boards. On this way we want to welcome the new manufacturer on our site.
Here you'll find 2C-Boards in our community: 2C-Boards

For one thing we got the 2C Board 200, with a engine power of 200 watt, for another thing we got the original 2C Board 600 out of the gameshow "Schlag den Raab" (beat the Raab) with signature from the TV-comedian Stefan Raab himself.

For sure, we are testing the 200 watt board to publish an other electric-skateboard review.

Pictures from unpacking are right here 2C Boards 200 Auspackzeremonie Vorschau

Of course we won't desecrate the 600 watt "Schlag den Raab" board.

Titus' pre-emptive measures // May 09

After we'd survived our first rides on the boards (cheers to our guardian angel), we have made our way up to the Stock-Car-Elektroskateboard-League. Cause: Skateboarding and Streetware


Starting from wristguards to kneepads with extra pads and elbowpads to helmets, Titus supports us & has supplied us with two complete sets.
We are delighted Titus has donated the pro-guards, because, trust us, driving without any is pretty risky!!

Interview with Mo-Bo // April 21

Markus Buchbauer from Mo-Bo was kind enough to do a little Q&A with us. The interview hasn't been translated yet though, but will be available within the next few days. We are sorry! Stay tuned!

Due to crappy, rainy weather the planned video shoot had to be cancelled and postponed. You guys have to hang in there and be a little more patient until the pics and vids will be available on the site soon.

First video session scheduled for this weekend // April 17

On Wednesday the board from Mo-Bo arrived, yesterday we equipped ourselves with some video equipment, and tomorrow we are going to have our first video session at the local skatepark. We don't really know what's going to happen yet, but one thing for sure, we'll start collecting first information for a detailed test report about the Mo-Bo 800.

Furthermore, the interview with Andrew from Elektroskate is now available in German as well.
Enjoy reading..

Just a few minutes ago, DHL delivered the Elektroskate Sport 600. Unfortunately, the Air 400 seems to have gotten lost on its way here, but Andrew is already looking into that and solving the problem, so we will be able to test both examples as soon as possible.

Fasting Has Come to an End.. // April 15

Right on time in the middle of the week, an enormous package was delivered unheraldedly to our office. Its sender was non other than Mo-Bo themselves. Well, you can most likely guess what was inside the package - exactly, an MB 800 All-terrain.

So, the first steps were unpacking the baby carefully and taking a few pics. Believe us, that thing is a monster of a skateboard. We had already expected that the Mo-Bo board would put any other normal skateboard to shame. But we definitely didn't expect a difference between like a
Bobbycar and a Monster Truck
118 cm long, 52 cm wide, 24 cm above ground, and about as heavy as two beer crates!
Here are the pics of the unpacking ceremony. Mobo Auspack Zeremonie Vorschau

Even though we were a little deterred at first, we couldn't keep our feet off of the board. What we had initially planned as a little test drive, ended with an empty battery and two exhausted but happy editors. More updates about our skating sessions will follow!

The English version of will be launched very soon. Still slacking off being extremely busy and enjoying his semester break, our chief master of translation slowly but most definitely awakens from his lethargy ... makin' progress, yo! :-)

Oh, right: Elektroskate sent out an Air 400 and a Sport 600 today. These two are expected to arrive at our office by Friday latest. Look forward to the upcoming reviews ...

One more thing - We are proud to present to you: The banners for linking on your website or blog are now available. Have fun!

Elektroskate Develops New Remote Control // April 6

We just got the news in at first hand that Elektroskate is currently developing a new remote control for their boards. Their bluetooth technology will remain the same, but the remote control itself will get a whole new look. Being one of the few manufacturers using an egg-shaped remote control, Elektroskate's new model will receive a pistol-like form just like the ones already being used by many other manufacturers.
It is uncertain yet whether there will be any further changes or improvements to the remote controls. We'll keep you updated, of course.

Forum - CMS - Sunshine // April 2

Another day, current news.
After we had done an update of our design last night, we are now about to take first steps towards the community and globalization of our site. Meaning: we're currently trying to figure out how to best implement a forum on our site, and how we are going to translate the whole project to English at the same time. Taking this opportunity, we'd like to introduce to you the latest member of our crew: a friendly American studies grad student who will take care of the translation of our site. (Note from the translator: Thanks guys, glad to be on board :-P). Welcome!

Elektroskate Added After Inquiry With Manufacturer // April 1

After we had gotten in touch with the English manufacturer Elektroskate, we have now listed them in the 'producers' category as well.
As we were told by Elektroskate themselves, the stuntman Jalil Jay Lynch - best known as the stunt double in films such as Bad Boys, Miami Vice, Taxi, Rush Hour ...- is currently testing one of their boards for his next Hollywood Blockbuster. This could very possibly be the breakthrough for the first ever electro skateboard on the big screen.

Mo-Bo Likes // March 31

Just after six days since we took our first steps in the endless realms of the internet, we have come to the realization that the guys at Mo-Bo have already found our website. And after a brief e-mail and phone correspondency, we are proud to announce that
Mo-Bo are going to send us press boards for our first tests!

Launch of Our Website // March 25

As you will most likely notice, the site is still in its early stage, and will undergo quite a bit of development and construction. Rest assured that we come up almost daily with new ideas of how to improve the site, how to make it larger, more informative, and also better looking.
Just make sure to drop by every now and then, and i'm pretty sure that there will be plenty of new things for you to discover each time you visit our website..
