SHOULD I BUY A WOBOARD MINI?
For the Daily CommuteWith climate change and environmental concerns becoming an evermore serious issue, people are looking for innovative solutions as to how they reduce contact and their personal carbon footprint. Our boards have proven to be an exciting and eco-friendly alternative for our customers who were previously confined to the daily commute using petrol powered vehicles. For many e-skateboarders however, solely using an enSkate board to travel the daily commute just isn’t possible, whether that be due to the distance between work and home, unsafe high-speed roads, or simply that there is nowhere to store the board once at your destination. The alternative is public transport, however this can bring difficulties often in the last mile of the journey that a bus or train does not cover. The Woboard Mini is our new board, designed specifically with portability and convenience in mind without compromising efficiency or design. Unlike a larger enSkate model, bikes, or an e-scooter, the Woboard Mini is the perfect travel companion to take on the daily commute. This board can easily be carried onto a bus or train without proving a hindrance to other passengers, and after riding the rest of the journey to work or university campus, can simply be stored under the desk, in a locker, or simply held beside you during lectures. The Woboard Mini is also our first e-skateboard model that can qualify as carry-on luggage given the size and dimensions, meaning it no longer needs to be a hassle to travel with you board, wherever you want to ride.
A Great Introduction for Beginners & Amateur
We all have to start somewhere, and the Woboard Mini can be a great introduction to e-skateboarding for the younger rider, or indeed any amateur. When being of a smaller than the average stature, a wider, longer deck can be much more difficult to maneuver. The weight of the rider can also become an issue when not enough pressure can be learnt onto the trucks to make sharp turns. In this sense, any aspiring young riding will find the Woboard Mini as a great starting platform to practice on. For any amateur rider that considers riding on a Woboard S an intimidating prospect due to its power and capabilities, the Woboard Mini can feel like a reassuring and forgiving entry to the world of e-skateboarding.
