Do you want to learn how to ride a Veymax Skate board? Then this article is just for you. I am also a beginner of Electric Skateboard. In order to learn to ride an Eskate, I have consulted many great gods. After a lot of research and my own knowledge, I have carefully crafted this beginner's guide.
First and foremost, standing still on a scooter is critical to your safety. Second, you should be familiar with the remote control. Now is the time to hit the throttle for the first time. After that it's time to practice how to break with the E-Skateboard. If you are able to perform acceleration and braking, we can move on to learning how to turn. Now that you know the basics, be sure to get to know your board and practice, practice, practice! In this beginner's guide, you'll learn the basics. Let's get ready for our Veymax Skateboard adventure!
First, determine your skating stance
When you first get into Electric Longboards, the first thing we need to figure out is whether you are skating with your right foot in front or your left foot in front. In skate terms: Is your stance "Normal" or "Goofy"?
Goofy Stance: In the Goofy Stance, you ride with your right foot in front and your left foot behind.
Normal Stance: In Normal Stance, you will ride with your left foot in front and your right foot behind.
Here are two different ways to stand on an Electric Skate board. But how do we know which foot is better for the front? I researched various tests to get our answers!
Kicking Test: Get yourself a football and kick it. The kicking foot is your back foot, the standing foot is your balance foot and therefore your front foot.
Board Test: In my opinion, this is the most reliable and best way to determine whether you are a Normal Stance rider or a Goofy Stance rider. Just get yourself on board and ask your friends to help you. Try now which pose is more normal and natural to you. Grab your friend's hand so you don't lose your balance. Drive a few meters in one direction, then the other, and see which front foot feels more natural.
Don't worry if it feels awkward at first. Often, your first few rides on a skateboard or Motorized Long board will feel very unnatural and weird. If you're unclear, if both positions feel unnatural, or if both positions feel about the same, then don't worry. Start with one side and eventually switch to the other as well. Good skateboarders and good electronic skateboarders can drive "Switches", which means they can drive with Normal Stance and with Goofy Stance. Maybe you're already one step ahead.
Correct posture of Electric Longboard
First, you want to make sure you have the correct posture on your E-Skate board. This means your feet are more or less hip-width apart from each other. You should bend your knees to compensate for any concussions or turns. It's also much easier to keep your balance.
You also need to make sure you're not leaning too far forward or leaning too far back. Otherwise, you will quickly lose your balance.
Open the Throttle
Unlike traditional skateboards, most Motorized Skateboards now use a wireless handheld remote. All controls are located on the remote, giving you instant access to every action. Figure out each function on the remote, then find an open space to practice.
Get ready to hit the gas. Some Electric Long boards have tremendous acceleration. You won't believe how fast they can accelerate. Accelerating when you're not ready can be dangerous. Electric boards may flip over. So we need to make sure we are ready for the accelerated process. Be prepared to shift your weight backwards when accelerating. Bend your knees and squat down slightly. In this way, the muscles of the hind legs are already a little tight, and when the center of gravity of the body moves backward, they can immediately tense up. It also lowers the center of gravity so the weight transfer is less intense.
Front foot: Lean forward as you accelerate, shifting your weight to your front foot. Bend your knees to lower your center of gravity. Bend your front leg more than your back leg.
Back foot: You want to make sure your back foot is stable, slightly tensed, and ready to accelerate. Also try to put your back foot on the end of the board, not the end of the board. Otherwise, the skateboard may wheelie and roll off. Yes - you will fall. When you accelerate, your weight is forced onto your back foot. Once you get over the initial acceleration, you'll be comfortable moving your weight across the board.
There are two main types of remote control (RC) for Motorized Skate boards. The first is the remote, which has a large trigger on the back of the RC that you pull with your index finger. The second type of remote control has a sliding button on the front of the remote control, which can slide up and down, and the remote control of veymaxboard belongs to the second type.
To open the throttle, you either pull the trigger (RC Type 1) or push the slideable button forward or up with your thumb. (RC type 2).
Braking with a Veymax Skateboard is more or less the opposite action of opening the throttle. Be prepared to shift your weight forward when braking. So lean back a little, bend your knees and squat down a little. In this way, the front leg muscles are already a little tight, and when the center of gravity of the body moves forward, they can immediately tense up. It also lowers the center of gravity so the weight transfer is less intense. So: you want to make sure your front foot is stable, slightly tensed, and ready to brake.
There are two main types of remote control (RC) for Electric Long boards. The first is the remote, which has a large trigger on the back of the RC that you pull with your index finger. The second type of remote has a slide button on the front of the remote that slides up and down. To brake, you need to release the trigger with your index finger or push the slideable button down or down with your thumb.
I recommend that you practice braking in a safe riding area before performing braking on the street. Also, I suggest you try to take a full break so you can get used to it. So you won't be surprised when you need to brake hard, and you'll be able to handle stressful situations.
Now you can take advantage of key benefits of electronic boarding. You don't need a broken foot! You can go downhill more slowly and safely, even on very steep grades. The braking system of electric longboards is very powerful, so there is usually no need to add a foot to brake or slow down. The best part is that your braking system is regenerative. So you break and charge your battery at the same time.
The amazing thing about Motorized Longboards is that you can now use the brakes!
Turning with Electric Skate boards
Electric Skateboards aren't much fun without turning. Cruising and cutting on a motorized longboard is slightly different than on a regular skateboard or longboard. The length, width, weight and tension of trucks reduce their maneuverability, but also make them stable. You can adjust the tightness of the truck, which affects how tight you can turn.
How to turn: You need to maintain a stable posture on the electric longboard. Press the gas pedal and drive straight ahead. Now, you shift your weight slightly to your toes or heels to make the turn.
Frontside turn: Shift your weight slightly onto your toes. This is called a toe-in turn. This means that if your left foot is in front, you will turn right. The center or midpoint of the turning radius is in front of you. So head on.
Weight transfer to toes
Backward turn: To make a backward turn, you must shift your weight slightly to your heels. This means that if your left foot is your front foot, you are turning left. The center of your turning radius is on the back of your body, so - turn backwards.
Another tip: hold your head up and look in the direction you want to go. If you want to turn right, look right. If you want to turn left, look left. If you are looking at a tree, you will eventually get there. So be sure to look in the direction you want to go.
Get to know your board and start practicing!
Get to know your Eskate and understand its settings. Try to find the traction point, acceleration point, breaking point and your turning radius. Figure out each function on the remote, then find an open space to practice. Just find out how your board rolls around corners, how it behaves and how it feels overall. You'll learn all of these things when you actually ride an E-Skateboard. The more you ride your skateboard in a safe area, the better. Here's a simple but very effective piece of advice: Practice more! Unlike traditional skateboards, most Motorized Veymaxboards now use a wireless handheld remote. All controls are located on the remote, giving you instant access to every action.
This will make your riding experience easier and better! Hope my guide will really help you learn how to ride an Veymax Longboard.
