Motorized Skateboards

The first motorized skateboard was made in the late 1900s by Louie Finkle.They were made to get around on a skateboard faster. Not many people used it then, but now many skateboards are becoming motorized.

With motorized skateboards you don’t have to push with your foot, because it is powered by an electric motor. The board is good at turning because it is flexible. You can’t do tricks because it’s is too heavy, also it could damage the motor. You control it with a throttle that you hold. You can control how fast or slow you can go. The skateboards can go up steep hills, and have good brakes to stop quickly. The board has a good grip on the bottom where your feet go, so if you stop while moving you don’t slip.

This is a good mode of transportation. You can move around on the street or on the sidewalk. Just watch out for pedestrians! You still need protection like a helmet. I don’t have a motorized skateboard myself, but I think the motorized skateboard is a great way to go places.
