If you've been skating for a while, you've probably figured out how to fall correctly on an electric skateboard. However, if you are a beginner or intermediate skater, you will be more concerned with avoiding tumbles. When we fly off an electric skateboard it surely has a cause. But what are the causes, how do crashes occur?
Ride beyond your skill level
Many beginners are unable to accurately assess their riding skills. An electric skateboard can accelerate very fast and can achieve speeds that only serious downhill longboarders achieve. Riding a powerful machine like an electric skateboard requires a lot of practice and skill.
Run into cars or pedestrians
When you ride your skateboard during rush hour in the city, be sure to be careful of your surroundings. The most serious concern when riding in traffic on the street. Even if we ride courteously and cautiously, crazy car drivers can still crash into us.
As a result, we should ride as far away from traffic and people as possible and at reasonable speeds. We should also try to practice our awareness and sensitivity in high-traffic situations.
Bad road condition
Riding with an electric skateboard on rough ground can be dangerous as well. Cracks and holes on roads can be real obstacles for our wheels.
And please avoid riding on wet roads, the wheels of electric skateboards are small, and without enough grip, you will easily fall.
The remote control disconnects
Another very dangerous situation to happen is when your remote control (RC) disconnects from your eboard. Please make sure that the remote control has enough power before going out and buy a high quality remote control
Speed wobbles come from the back truck and are more likely to happen if your trucks are loose. Remember to keep your back truck tighter than the front to avoid too much steering input from the rear. You can also keep your weight forward (over your front foot), then speed wobbles should happen less. Tightening your back truck will help you.
Electric skateboard is a fun toy, You can enjoy it as long as you master the riding skills and avoid situations that might make you fall.
