Electric Skateboard Freedom

Longboarding and all its disciplines comes from the human need to break boundaries and seek freedom in places that are humanly impossible- to test the limits of speed and danger that humankind can persevere and strive in. Every discipline of longboarding incorporates some sort of monumental freedom that isn’t attainable without the help of a 4-wheeled moving companion- whether it’s carving all over the sidewalk or dropping a curb, longboarding helps to free you from walking on two legs.

More and more, people are beginning to embrace speed and efficiency in their daily lives- it helps free up their time so they can use it on more productive things, such as working, or spending it doing something else that they like. Naturally, since most people spend most of their waking hours commuting to work or school or some other kind of routine commitment, they would want to cut down on commuting times. However, where they find that walking is too slow, their only other option of cycling is much too bulky and inconvenient for them- rather, they show up to their destination sweaty and smelly, and the extra hassle of showering at work again isn’t always a possibility or a desire for most normal people. You’d have to be incredibly productive and diligent to do that, which most people aren’t. Plus, there’s the whole problem of storing your bike, buying a lock, removing tires and whatnot, and that could waste a ton of time. The modern solution is the electric longboard. Wheels, effortless commuting in a small package? Sign me up! Some of these electric boards are small enough to fit under a desk or in the breakroom- all you have to do is carry it into your office and set it down. It frees up so much time and effort for you to spend on other things! That sounds like freedom to me.

More than that, with an electric longboard, you have a new, fun pastime to explore. Under your feet, you have a fast, nimble vehicle that can carry you into the mid 20s (miles per hour) where you can flow and breeze past others on your favorite cruising paths. You will get to see four times as much scenery in the same time! You can carve around, use all of the path- the road under your feet is yours. Imagine living on an escalator that takes you anywhere you want- that’s longboarding. Personally, I’ve found that after starting longboarding, my life has moved faster than it previously did- travel times were shorter, and I started to want things that were faster and more quickly paced. I didn’t like sitting around, waiting for things to be done; I wanted things now and that was the only way I could have it without becoming extremely impatient with the things around me, and it really upped by productivity. The freedom and motivation to do things quicker with a longboard was astounding.

Aside from electric longboarding, traditional longboarding has much in stock in terms of freedom- seeking adrenaline and breaking personal boundaries. The prime example is downhill longboarding- monumentally dangerous-looking sport where people on longboards race down steep hills at speeds in excess of 40 miles per hour, doing gnarly-looking slides with nothing but a shirt and shorts on. To put it poetically, downhill longboarding is a symbol for human’s need to fly- to go faster and do things that are impossible for the normal, unequipped human- we like the idea of soaring through the skies and breaking records and reading car speeds on a plank of wood with wheels on it. It’s the achievement of unrealistic, romanticized dreams. Personally, this is the sport that I indulge in. The sense of freedom when I get as the wind roars through my helmet, and the breeze I feel breathing through my shirt is incredible. Some of the most incredible friendships and professional relationships I have ever gained were through downhill longboarding, and year after year, I find myself reveling in its glory. I recommend the sport to anyone who loves adrenaline and also appreciates a nicely sized friend group full of people who appreciate similar things.

I loved the feeling of being uninhibited by my humanly features- my legs are slow, my endurance is horrible, and I don’t think I could possibly run for more than an hour. But on a longboard, the 3-minute-long, fast downhill cruises I was able to have freed me from my responsibilities and left me feeling refreshed after a day of hard work. Going home sweaty every time, I’ve never felt an ounce of regret for the road rash and bruises that I had accumulated over the day. Once you get used to having such an awesome release of stress and freedom, you never go back- getting injured after a fall and not being able to skateboard for a few weeks is like suffocating in a box for a few hours. It’s like mental torture!

Longboard dancing is also incredibly freedom-inspiring when you think about it- the gracefulness of riders on boards, moving at constant speeds while treating their platforms as stages to exhibit their mastery of balance and smooth moves is a freeing experience like none other- and it’s not easy. Longboard dancing takes years of practice, and the end result is many times, jaw-dropping when you show it off on the boardwalk. Personally, I was never good at it and I really wish I had practiced more before I gave up on it. Also, the many beautiful designs that dancing board companies offer these days are seductive and attractive, which gives you the freedom of choosing what you want your board style to be.

All in all, longboarding is one great way to introduce freedom into your daily life- it’s one of the best ways to push yourself out of your comfort zone, and when your comfort zone is really widened, that’s when the fun in life begins. Start now- get yourself a longboard and experience what I have! Always wear a helmet too! 

Magneto Longboards

Amazing London at Christmas Electric Skateboard ride!

Last Friday myself and a You-Tuber called Ollie headed out for a skate on our Magneto electric skateboards.


What an awesome way to see London at such an amazing time of year, although the day did not start well! 

Poor Ollies board got run over by a car at the very start of the day! 

See the video below: 



Literally at the very start of the day! So it kind of made the day less fun for Ollie! We’re sending him new parts to get his Magneto Electric Longboard V1 repaired! 

Having said that, the sun was out, the weather relatively warm and just riding around London or any city on an electric skateboard is a liberating experience. Such an amazing way to take in the sights, the smells, the sounds. Of course, the main benefit being you can just pull up anytime and walk into any shop or Cafe’ with your board in tow. 

We took an Amazing route for anyone who is interested. 

We rode from the Tate gallery area, up past Big Ben then cut into St James Park to Hyde Park corner then through Hyde Park and finally finishing off around Covent Gardens! 

Stunning route!

Ollie was on great form and recorded the entire Skate albeit I’m sure he was tired pushing! Check out the video below.


That’s about it! But here at Magneto, we would Love to hear your favorite skate routes and rides! Post below and share if liked this! 

Peace and Love to all and of course, MERRY CHRISTMAS! 




Free Electric Skateboard when you buy an Audi!

At Beijing’s car show the other week Audi unveiled a new mobility concept – and I’m sure the fact being that you’re on an electric skateboard website, you know what that concept is. 

Of course, it’s an electric skateboard included in the car. Pretty cool the way it sits in a dedicated space under the bumper! Check out more details from the: VERGE 

electric skateboard with audi

You might be wondering why the hell we are covering this. After all, it’s got nothing to do with our brand and what we’re doing.

Well if you did think that, you missed a trick.

For us, this means the electric skateboard is going out to the mainstream, no longer is it an esoteric gadgety  toy and what brand could be more mainstream than Audi after all.

At the end of the day, there’s a very simple reason why electric skateboards or electric longboards are going mainstream. (of course, the original appeal is either the gadget guy or the ex-longboarder who’s now too long in the tooth to push). 

The reason is this. Are you ready? 

Electric Skateboards are USEFUL

Despite being cool and currently maybe only appealing to esoteric groups, they actually solve a very, very obvious problem. A problem we all face, not just the cool ex-longboarder, or gadget guy has this problem. 

They solve the problem of short journeys too far to walk and too close to call a cab. ‘The last mile solution’ But let me just edit that sentence slightly: Electric Skateboards are a damn COOL way to get around. 

Audi jumping on the bandwagon and what does/could it mean. 

Finally, electric skateboards will be looked at as the legitimate solution they are, I think it won’t be long before we see BMW and other brands jump on the trend because electric skateboards aren’t going anywhere for the foreseeable future. 

I also thinking this mainstream light will serve in another way. The LAW. 

Currently, in many countries, it’s a gray area, most laws are out of date in regards to electric travel. Soon we may see an overhaul of electric vehicle laws or lack of, or gray areas being amended, as the benefits are blindingly obvious. 

1.) 100% portability. 

2.) SUPER Eco-friendly. 

3.) Solves the last mile solution.

4.) F****** Cool (excuse my French) as opposed to other ways to travel via motor driven electric device, eg the hover board or electric scooter, which to be quite frank, well I better stop there as I realized this post is becoming biased and opinionated! 

To summarize. 

We at Magneto welcome Audi into the electric Longboard/electric skateboard scene with open arms and look forward to other major brands doing the same. 

Make sure you share & like! 

Peace & Love, 

Magneto Team

Magneto Electric Skateboard Pre-ride Check List



What to check for before setting off on an electric Longboard ride.

The Magneto Electric Skateboard Pre-ride checklist.

OK guys, so this is something you should be doing most of the time before you plan a any sort of significant electric longboard ride.


Check Longboard and controller are fully charged, You’ll see 2 green lights on the controller, 1 indicates the remote is paired and status of battery in the remote, the 2nd indicates battery life in the Magneto Electric Skateboard.


Check operation, Turn the board on, pair the remote by holding A, now just lift he back wheels off the ground and accelerate using the remote. The wheels should spin, now brake using the remote by pushing down C. This just confirms the operation.


Do quick visual and run your skateboard tool around wheel nuts checking everything is how it should be. Do not over-tighten these.


Plan your journey. No electric skateboard, or pretty much any smaller motorised riding device likes rough and bumpy roads, so plan a nice clear, quiet tarmac route. This will extend your range and pro-long general longevity in the Magneto Electric Skateboard.


Weather! Always check the weather, common sense guys, who likes to ride in the rain anyway!


Safety, OK, I know you were expecting this and I know, you know! But here goes again.

The Magneto Electric Skateboard is a beast. People injure themselves on normal skateboards, please take extra pre-cautions in wearing safety gear.


Like anything mechanical failure and the un-expected is always possible. Try to ride with a plan to bail or fall safely back up at all times. Never put yourself in a situation where your life is 100% dependant on the brakes or the board performing perfectly. Even though the event of failure is extremely rare, why risk it?

We hope you found this post useful, please share it 🙂


Your First Electric Skateboard ride.



You hear that knock on the door, it’s the postman, could it be…could the wait be over?


Yes the Magneto Electric Skateboard has arrived.


You put the box on the table and begin to gingerly unseal the box to reveal the beast within.


Here’s what you need to know. 


After opening the box you’ll find your Magneto board and all the accessories to ride.


These include:


1.) Charger for board and remote.


2.) Bluetooth Remote and sleeve.


3.) Skateboard tool.


4.) The Magneto electric skateboard.


5.) Instructions.


Before your first Electric board ride 


1.) Charge the Magneto for 5-6 hours (first charge) Also charge the controller.


2.) Read instructions and read our safety page


3.) Put on appropriate footwear and safety gear, see safety page, link above.


OK, now your board is charged, you’re wearing the correct gear and feeling pretty excited.


Awesome! I bet right now your heart rate is buzzing and you can’t wait to get outside in the fresh air and ride at 20mph..


Just hold on a second…


Our boards have a very tight braking and acceleration programme, with practice, it’s easily mastered but the first few hours there will be some spills even for experienced rider’s so don’t be a show off!


We tailored the acceleration and braking, it’s a very rewarding programme, however it requires patience and practice to master. The braking is aggressive and it should be, it’s important to be able to stop fast, it’s also fun! 🙂


So look…we all want to be Casey Neistat but you need to take it slow at the start otherwise you’ll be punished.


Find a large flat, dry open space take it slow, the brake is tuned to be lighter at higher speeds, at lower speeds it can be full on, the best way to use the brake initially is pull back quickly, release, pull back quickly release. A bit like ABS in a car.


Stance: The Longboard deck has a concave that allows you to lock your feet in, use the W concave on the deck, it’s there for a reason! 


The idea is this: at low speeds you can just turn your lead foot a little forward so you feel comfortable.


However: At higher speeds both feet need to be locking into the concave and facing more forward. With your feet locked in like this, with practice you’ll be able to go full on the brake at top speed. It’s an awesome feeling and will take time to master.


In theory to be safe you should never rider faster than you can run, as bailing is an important part and of course if you need to abandon deck! If the board is under your top running speed you’ll be able jump off and run along side the board in case of an emergency or losing your balance.


Riding conditions Always try to ride on clean, dry, flat ground. Avoid divets and bumps like the plague. Remember the wheels aren’t bicycle wheels, they’re a lot smaller, so hitting a bump or small hole can bring the board to sudden complete stop.


Never ride downhill exceeding the boards top speed, this can cause a malfunction in the equipment.  


Common sense tip:


This might sound a bit contradictory but try and stay out of your head when riding, just focus on your body, the moment, feel the air, listen and pay attention. Don’t think about why Jenny hasn’t text you back or what you’re having for dinner tonight. 😛


Note: Continuous downhill and uphill riding especially for heavier rider’s will cause the board to wear much faster.


After the ride


After riding, give your board a quick clean with some moist wipes.


Never leave the board fully un-charged for a longtime, try and fully run the battery down then fully charge in order to get the most out of the battery.


Always wear a helmet, any Qs add them to the comments!


Here’s a You Tube unboxing by Ben Fox 







Ride your Magneto Electric Skateboard safe.


Ride safe today so you can ride tomorrow.


Lee from Magneto here.

I have noticed from some social media pictures that some of you guys may not be wearing proper safety equipment.

I hate to sound like your dad but…


People break bones everyday regular Longboarding and Skateboarding.

Our board has a motor attached, it deserves respect, if you don’t give it respect it will hurt you, period.

Skateboarding/Longboarding is considered an extreme sport, so what does that make electric skateboarding?

An Extreme, Extreme sport at least! Would you go rock climbing without a rope?

Please do follow the advice on our safety page and be aware.

*Wear full protective gear, especially helmet and wrist protection.

*Do not ride in traffic.

*Learn to foot brake- master this.

*Learn to fall.

*Learn to bail.

*Always be prepared for a sudden stop.

*Do not ride at full speed or FAST in a place where you are going to need to brake suddenly.

*Know that you are riding something remotely controlled and although really, really rare, interference is possible.

Again, sorry to sound long winded but please go out and buy safety gear today, wrist protection and helmet should be no.1 and no.2 on the list and give our Longboard the same respect you would give anything else that can hurt or even kill you if not used correctly.

Electric Longboarding is fun, don’t make it painful.

Ride safe.

Lee, Magneto.


The History of the Electric Skateboard

History Of Electric Skateboarding | Electric Longboard 

Back in 1975 the first motor based board ‘electric skateboard’ was actually non-electric! The Motoboard. As we know now, came in to production- which is kind of contradictory to the title I know!

The initial longboard was a gasoline powered one and it became the initial concept for current electric skateboards. These gasoline powered longboards were banned as they were causing too much pollution and were extremely noisy.


Electric skateboard

In late 1990’s Louie Finkle introduced the world to a new type of skateboard which was the new wireless form of electric skateboards. The product was revolutionary and was an instant hit, but yes it was pretty expensive so it couldn’t be owned by everyone. In 2006, a group of friends collaborated together to improve the model of Louie’s electric skateboards.

Nonetheless, after the development of the gasoline powered skateboards, there were a fair few reasons which caused these motorised boards to get banned like: noise produced by the engines and gasoline engines that were creating pollution.  But the fact is that California is a ruling state for producing motorised skateboards

However, the awesome news that the ban of riding electric skateboard has now been lifted in California is just immense and reversing the outdated 1977 ban was the right thing to do. You can read more here: electric skateboard ban lifted.

There are some hazards that are associated with the electric longboarding industry and road accidents are one of the major concerns. Hence, under the 2054 bill number, it’s been cleared that electric longboards cannot cross the speed limit of 20 Mph. It is also wise to mention these that any loss associated with electric skateboards are not covered by most insurance policies.

The use of longboards is very common among youngsters but not every normal individual was able to enjoy these slick electric rides. However, with the current advancement and development of new companies such as ours and the Magneto being a good example, electric longboards are becoming more easily available for public use. 

The speed and actual capacity of an electric longboard depends on many variables including but not limited to, the battery used for fueling it, lithium or lead, the size of the battery and of course the quality and the output of the motor and drive system.

We decided, to provide an all round experience for our users with selling a board that will offer speeds up to 20mph delivered from a powerful 1200W brushless motor. An 8AH Lithium battery is capable of providing riders with hours of use and a 14-17 mile range- this is massively dependant on riding style, surface friction and gradient. The Magneto is also built for carving and handling with it’s concave deck shape. We are also conscious the weight and charge time were big factors in solving the last mile problem so the Magneto board is light at 6KG and a full charge takes between 2-3 hours. 


Here’s some footage that depicts how far we have come. 





Hope you enjoyed the post guys, piece out. Magneto Electric Skateboards.

Cool Skate locations for riding your Electric Longboard

I genuinely can’t imagine many things better, 3 inches above the tarmac, the wind in my hair and beautiful scenery whizzing past. No windows, no doors. Just the road and the view. Add the feeling of adrenaline and the addictive skill set required to skate an electric board with ease compounded by the above, it pretty much guarantees that you have all the ingredients for an experience that will in-grain itself into your memory for a very longtime. 

Heres a list of cool locations to head out for a skate on your electric longboard. 


Chapman’s Peak Drive, South Africa

electric longboard

Calling all adrenaline junkies only! This awesome road overlooks the sea and makes you feel like you’re travelling alongside the mountains edge. It has 114 curves- so have fun carving whilst ‘soaking’ (pun intended) up the view! Not for the feint hearted thats for sure. Find out more


A82 Road, Scotland

We’re looking at extending this post. Live near or know of some roads you think we should would be sick to skate on? Take some pictures and email them over lee@magnetoelectricskateboard.com and we’ll feature them.
Ride safe guys and don’t do anything I wouldn’t. Peace out. Magneto. 

Looking after your Electric Longboard

electric longboard


Look after your Magneto electric longboard and it’ll look after you.


This post actually applies to most electric longboards/electric skateboards on the market at the moment. 

Only over the last few years have we been able to make batteries able to last long enough (ours 25KM range.)

and motors powerful, small and light enough to fit on a portable object able to carry a person at speed.

But here’s the thing…. 

Even though we have reached a point where we have technology able to carry a person 20 miles per hour and said device weighing only 6kg I get the impression that there is also an expectation that this stuff has to be in-destructable too. 

I spent 2 years riding prototypes and some of the bails and falls I had were spectacular, one standing out in particular:

I was on the top floor of a car park riding in the wet, I punched top speed on the remote and must of hit a divet in the concrete floor, the board come out from underneath me, I hit the deck and as I looked up I saw our precious magneto electric longboard hurtling into a solid wall at full speed, the bang echoed throughout the car park. I looked down at my thumb and I was still holding the throttle at FULL SPEED! oops. That was a 20mph mission into the concrete abyss, however to my surprise the Magneto survived! 

In terms of knocks and bumps our boards are impressive to be quite frank, I can’t guarantee every magneto board will survive a crash like that (and if you do crash your board and wreck it, it’s not covered under warranty so don’t ride like an idiot like me!)


Here are the top 4 things to be aware of and most are applicable to all electric longboards/skateboards in the market at present! 


1.) Skating downhill. 
Be careful riding your Magneto Electric Longboard down steep hills with the power on, the Magneto is ok with the occasional hill, but braking downhill continuously eventually wears the motor out and you will end up with a dead board, a new motor solves this problem.
When riding downhill switch the power off and skate the Magneto like a regular longboard, perhaps invest in some long boarding gloves for these parts of your journeys. 
2. ) Try not to get them wet 
 Our boards are splash resistant, not water proof. Riding through light rain or on a damp surface is fine but if you get the underside saturated by riding through puddles and in heavy rain, you could end up causing a problem with the electrics. You’ll need to put you board in a warm dry place for a few days and let it dry out, this usually cures it. 
3.) Bumpy, un-even surfaces
Riding on your Magneto Electric Longboard on very bumpy surfaces, like cobbled streets is not advised.
4.) protect the remote
Without a doubt the remote is the part that is the easiest to break so if you bail, of course- don’t die doing it, but protect the remote where possible and use the wrist-straps provided. 
I hope this post clears up some questions you might have. Our boards are Frickin’ awesome and we would rather be completely transparent so everyone can keep riding! If you don’t do any of the 4 listed above expect your electric longboard to serve you well, if you do give us a shout and we’ll help you diagnose any problems and send you the parts required to get back riding. 
Peace out, Magneto Electric Longboards

Skateboarding games

Here’s a nostalgia inducing list of skateboard games 


 Hell, even if you are not looking for an electric longboard and you’re here by accident you’ve still probably played an skateboard game! from Tony hawk to the Simpson’s they’re has been a variety of skateboard games over the last 20 years, lets delve in and get nostalgic. 

 It all began on the Atari back in the late 80s 



Skate boardin’ (Atari 2600 VCS, 1987)



skateboard game



Indeed one of the very first, if not the first skateboarding game, made by absolute entertainment. Hilariously so old that skateboarding was not used as single term at that point “skateboarding”. 

However, kudos to anyone who is the first despite the poor graphics.

Some more info here on skate boardin’


Time to change console and upgrade a to the first REAL mainstream console, sadly for me I am old enough to remember the late nights playing this in my pyjamas, however I was more of a Mario or Zelda player back in the day.’



Town & country surf designs: Wood & Water (NES-1988)



skateboard game



 The titles a bit of mouthful, eh? 

We thought one of the early skateboard titles on the NES was worth a mention? Anyone play this? 

10/10 for nostalgia! 



Skate or Die! (NES & PC 1988)



skateboarding game



Probably the first title we’re mentioning that you may briefly recollect, Skate or Die one of the members in the EARLY skateboard game hall of fame. 

If you love the retro scene and have never played this, check it out, its so typically indicative of the Retro era its amusing. 

More info on Skate or Die 



Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater (Multiple Platforms, 1999)



skateboard game



 The first major mainstream skateboard game, featuring no other than the world renown Tony Hawk

I remember playing this on Playstation 1 back in the day

This game really started the skateboard game movement and SMASHED IT IN THE REVIEWS

enough said. 



Grind Session (PlayStation, 2000)



skateboard game



This is a 3rd person skate anywhere type get up, its worth mentioning, but not quite as good as some of its competitors in this era in my opinion, however it did feature some of the pro’s: Daewon song, Ed Templeton, Cara Burnside. 

It was however a Skateboard game that the critics loved, check out the review



ESPN X-Games Skateboarding  (PlayStation 2, Game Boy Advance, 2001)



skateboard game



Swiftly moving to the next generation now and its an ESPN game, unlike previous releases this version featured skateboarding only. 

X-games got mixed review and did live up to the hype or compared to games such as Tony Hawk’s pro skater 3.  

Although one thing that was pretty cool, is it did feature a soundtrack from Linkin park. 

Review by Gamespot



Skate  (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Mobile, 2007)



skateboard game



  Jumping forward on to yet another generation it brings us to nearly now in terms of graphics. 

After Tony Hawk had dominated the skateboarding market, Skate was finally a title to stand up to the big bully Hawk. 

Skate also had a note-worthy online mode. 

The most important this to say about Skate is got rad reviews, click here for Gamespots full review



Shaun White Skateboarding  (PS3, Wii, Xbox 360, PC, 2010)



shaun white skateboard game



Shaun White is super well known for snowboarding, it turns out this dude is multi-talented. His renown for his Skateboarding tricks and contest victories- so he got his very own video game, woo hoo!

Sadly it received a less than average review, here’s IGN’s take.

Ps- if you’re real life skater check out our post on safety.



Tony Hawk’s PRO SKATER 5, (Playstation 4 September 2015)



skateboard gaming



Sadly this game was destroyed by the critics, we were hoping the first leap into the generation of today would have been a big one, sadly not. 

Check out the review by Eurogamer

Check out our post Riding an electric skateboard like a Ninja for inspiration.

Ohh one I missed…. 



The Simpsons Skateboarding, (Playstation 2002)



simpsons skateboarding



It turns out Springfield has been converted into a Skatepark for the annual Skate tour. 

All the voices in the game were recorded by the actual actors.

However The Simpsons Skateboarding received a painfully low score on metacritic of 38/100


Playing games really is no substitute for the real thing, although we all like to chill with a good game in front of the TV now and then and I had some great times playing some of these titles. 


Magneto over and out.
