Base Camp Ghost electric skateboard review: This deck is scary fast and fun to ride [Video]

Ghost skateboard

As we reach the pinnacle of the spooky season on Halloween today, I thought it would be appropriate to share my recent experience with the Ghost – a high performance electric skateboard from Base Camp, featuring some impressive in-house technology, and some of the fastest top speeds I’ve yet to come across. Here are my thoughts.

2Swift Board review: It’s a skateboard! It’s a scooter! It’s… its own thing in the best way [Video]

It’s very rare that I see something in the world of electric mobility that makes me think, “What the hell is that thing?” Buried in those rare instances, however, are usually some unique gems, and that is no different when it comes to the all-terrain, two-wheel inline electric board from 2Swift. Learn more below, alongside my video review.

Base Camp F11 review: A portable, electric option for the beginner skateboarder [Video]

Base Camp skateboard

Here I am, back at it with another test run of a new product in electric mobility. This go-around is with Base Camp and its F11 electric skateboard. Unlike many of the longboards I’ve reviewed in the past, the F11 is much closer to the skateboards I grew up unsuccessfully kickflipping on. Its specs won’t blow you away, but its portability, ease of use, and available accessories are definitely worth a look.

The Defiant: One review – a beauty to look at, but a true beast of a skateboard to ride [Video]

Defiant One

All hail the Capybara! It’s only been a few months since electric skateboard brand Defiant Board Society introduced the Defiant: One. I recently got my hands on one to see this beauty of a board up close and give it a spin. Despite its best efforts to knock me off, I was able to eventually carve this electric skateboard around town and had a blast doing so. Here are my thoughts.

Review: 28 mph Maxfind FF AT all-terrain electric skateboard rides better than the expensive boards

maxfind ff at skateboard

This is the first time I’ve had a chance to test one of Maxfind’s electric skateboards, but the budget e-skateboard maker has seriously impressed me. Having previously tested much more expensive name-brand boards, I can immediately tell you that the Maxfind FF AT rides just as well, if not better, than some of the bigger names out there. It may not have quite as much power (though it’s close), but it makes up for it in the ride quality.

Raldey MT-V3 electric skateboard review: This beginner board is even better on CloudWheels

The $449 Raldey MT-V3 electric longboard is a worthy option for beginners venturing into electric skateboarding. While the range leaves a bit to be desired, this beginner board offers a quality ride with various speed settings you can work up to, just don’t try to take it too far off the beaten path… even with the CloudWheels I also tested.

Possway T3 electric skateboard review: 32 mph and big ‘ol comfort wheels for $499? Sign me up!

The $499 Possway T3 electric skateboard falls into an interesting middle ground between typical road-ready electric longboards and their beefier all-terrain electric board cousins. The chunky wheels and powerful ride combine to offer it a commanding presence that gives you the confidence to tackle more than you might be able to on a conventional electric longboard. Or at least that’s what it did for me when I got the chance to test it out recently.

Review: Spoiler alert! Backfire Hammer all-terrain electric skateboard is a beast

Backfire Hammer

I’m admittedly only a couple years into the world of electric skateboards, immersing myself in the technology after seeing people zoom by me on the strand in the South Bay of Los Angeles. One name that continually came up has been Backfire Skateboards, which just recently unveiled its Hammer all-terrain electric board, and I got the opportunity to test it out for you.

While I was a bit timid (and truthfully terrified) by the near 30 mph top speed of this skateboard, I quickly fell in love with the Hammer’s performance and smooth ride through everything I threw at it… and I mean everything. You’re going to want to check the Backfire Hammer out ASAP, because this thing cooks.
