I have been extremely pleased with the skateboard and ride it daily. I am an adult weighing 175lbs, and it is plenty fast and maneuverable (loosen the trucks a little). I surf and skate, but this is a whole new level of fun when it comes to skating. I ride it to go check the waves and to walk/run the dog as well as just for fun. In Florida where life is flat, this lets you carve and cruise like you are going downhill. I generally keep it on the slow setting while carving around the neighborhood as the fast setting is honestly a little too fast for use without protective gear. I'm happy with the quality and performance and have had no issues with use or charging. I can't speak to the range because I only ride it a couple of miles between charges, but it appears to hold the charge well. It is a little heavy, but why carry it when you can ride it!
We LOVE this skateboard so much. Fun for the whole family. All the neighborhood kids love to try it and my husband takes it when we go on family bike rides.
I bought this board this past week and I can’t get enough of it. This board is loads of fun! Seriously, I have been longboarding for over 10 years now and I haven’t been able to get the speed on my other boards that I have been able to achieve on this Backfireboard. The board feels very well made as well as the motor and the remote control.
This is my first board and I absolutely love it. Customer service has been a breeze to work with and they are quickly responsive to any and all needs. For a beginner, this is definitely the board you want. It handles easily and has enough power to climb hills and cruise down pathways at around 20 mph. Highly recommend it for any longboarder making an entry into electric-powered cruising. This is a quality board from a quality brand and I can’t wait to get this longboard back on the roads this spring!
