Pushing, pumping, tic-tacking, it's all so pathetically 90's. Get over it. The skateboards of the future are all electric. And OK, it may not work for flippy-do tricks but harnessing the energy of the Exkate electric skateboard is the closest feeling to surfing you're ever going to get on the pavement. Commanding a respectable 20 mph with a wireless handheld controller, your feet never leave the board as you carve your way all over town. And with around 10 miles to a full charge, you'll be tripping. Until someone invents the Hoverboard, this baby is it!

ALTERED DCM - Digital Control Modules
In reality your Altered Electric Skateboard is both a skateboard and a wireless computer. For 09, we spent nearly a year & a half developing the finest digital wireless electronics available. We have the patent on the wireless feature and we partnered with a Silicon Valley corporation to raise the bar to the highest levels. It was a huge expense but the result is everything we had hoped for. In the past the electronics were an older RF technology which limited performance and had some interference. With our new 2G Digital Wireless DCM's, we are now state-of-the-art and this will open doors for many future developments.

Tips for using a skateboard

* Give your board a safety check each time before you ride.
* Always wear safety gear.
* Obey the city laws. Observe traffic and areas where you can and cannot skate.
* Don't skate in crowds of non-skaters.
* Only one person per skateboard.
* Never hitch a ride from a car, bicycle, etc.
* Don't take chances; complicated tricks require careful practice and a specially-designated area.
* Learn to fall—practice falling on a soft surface or grass.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), more than 15,600 persons need hospital emergency room treatment each year for injuries related to skateboarding. Fractures are a frequent type of injury. Deaths as a result of collisions with motor vehicles and from falls are also reported.

Irregular riding surfaces account for more than half of the skateboarding injuries caused by falls. Wrist injury is the number one injury, usually a sprain or a fracture. Skateboarders who have been skating for less than a week suffered one-third of the injuries. When experienced riders suffered injuries, it was usually from falls that were caused by rocks and other irregularities in the riding surface.
