Let me just preface this by saying that I JUST got this thing last week this is only my 5th day Riding it and now my tire is flat, there was no glass in this empty field and no nails that I could see, it’s daylight so I know I didn’t see any, just twigs but none sharp enough to puncture an EUC, I’m more concerned that this will keep happening I just bought this Inmotion V8 for $899 and I don’t wanna have to keep spending money on repairs I don’t know what else this could be and worse yet where to go to fix this, I just rode it all around the entire park and made huge progress and now it’s flat and I don’t know what to do about it, or worse yet why it even happened so any advice would be appreciated, I just made a quick leap in progress too this is a bummer guys please point me in the right direction, I heard pressure is a factor it’s possible since I’m new at this that I didn’t “adjust something right” hopefully I get to the bottom of this. And thank you in advance.

I had a flat tire as well -- no punctures. I traced it to the valve stem leaking air.

To check if it's the same case with yours, try to squirt soapy water into the tire valve stem. If you see bubbles form, you have a slow leak.
