I am a longboard fanatic myself and by having used it over the years for recreational purposes as well as a way of getting around, I have noticed that carrying it around can be a hassle.  And as it turns out, this is the case with every personal transportation device that is on the market right now. They bring you from point A to point B, but in themselves, they are never mobile in terms of size, weight or both. So I have created the board of the future, leaving the question ‘Shall/can I bring my board?’ in the past. The board becomes an essential part of your backpack.

The lack of products that are truly compact and portable. And if I have to be really honest, I always leave home too late to go to appointments, so I often have to run in order to get to them in time. I thought “I need a way to make travelling faster and more fun, so I don’t have to run anymore.”

My hopes and dreams for this product are to really get it on the market. And that people will really see, experience and share my vision regarding the future of personal transportation devices.
