Mike, cool video, I am having a blast Eskating.
I grew up skateboarding but after having a family, I haven't really rode until this Feb when I for some reason got the skateboarding bug bad again after a nearly 20 year absence. I'm 41 now and started going to skateparks again with my old skateboarding friend from high school and we've been having so much fun checking out all the local skateparks that weren't around when we were skating as kids. And of course, since I'm in a electric unicycle rider I decided I had to have an electric skateboard.
I did a small amount of research and picked the most powerful budget board I could find. I have been really enjoying the Meepo NLS Pro, but I've never had an ESkate before so I don't really know how to compare it. I am a lifelong skateboarder, so I can say that the deck is good, flexy and comfortable, the trucks turn well, and the big wheels roll good. I feel like maybe the rear hub motor wheels are less smooth than the front freewheels and pick up a little more vibrations from sidewalk cracks etc, but these giant wheelsroll over bad terrain way better than any of my regular skateboard wheels (my wheel of choice on normal skateboards is 52-54 mm) the meepo wheels are wider than my normal wheels are tall hahaha.
I have not been able to fully kill the battery yet, but have had a couple 10-12 mile rides on it. It's a lot less comfortable than an EUC because of after 10 miles of vibrations my feet get all worn out, but it's soooooo much fun to just carve around on a skateboard for an hour or two. I do really love it. The only problem is deciding to ride EUC or ESkate, I've been trying to give them equal attention and it's hard
