At long last, it's time to ride your new electric skateboard for the first time! But before that, there are a few things you need to do to make sure it's ready for the ride.
In this article, we'll take the Veymax X3 as an example to tell you everything about preparing for riding a Veymax Skateboard, including tips for a successful first ride!
5 Important Tips for First-time Riders
The main advantage of the Veymax e-board is its simplicity: anyone can use it. No hours of learning, no need to master complicated controls. You can use it right away. Isn't that wonderful?
Read the instruction manual
When you buy a new electric skateboard, the first thing you should do is read the instruction manual. Even though this is a very simple thing, it's important that you familiarize yourself with our electric skateboard and how it works before using Veymax X3 for the first time. In the manual you'll find information on how to start, how to operate your electric skateboard, troubleshooting tips and much more
And you should also be familiar with the settings before taking it for a test ride. Such as start the remote, start up the e-board, how to brake and switch the gears, and much more. All this is important for the safe operation of electric skateboards.
Find a safe place to practice
Where can you ride an electric skateboard as a beginner? You should plan it early on, and find a safe place to practice!
As a beginner on an electric skateboard, the best place to practice is in an open, apartment area with no obstacles, where you have plenty of room to maneuver. This can be a private park or an empty parking lot. You should avoid riding in crowded areas or on busy streets until you're comfortable with your skateboard and have mastered your technique.
For example, some parking lots (in the open air or in an underground parking lot) are great for practicing riding your electric skateboard. This is because the area is large and the surface is completely apartment. Some places even have small slides where you can practice how to go downhill safely on an e-board.
Assuming you've already assembled your electric skateboard, there are still a few things you need to do before you can ride it. Here's a quick checklist to get your electric skateboard ready for its first ride:
- Check that the brakes are working properly. The brakes are crucial for safety, so it's important to make sure they're in good working order before you start riding.
- Make sure the board is fully charged for maximum range and availability. Charge the battery using the original charger according to the manufacturer's instructions.
- After starting the electric skateboard, listen for unusual noises to make sure the motor is working properly.
- If you plan on riding your e-board far from home, always have a light emergency kit with you.
Know the local traffic rules
Many people take for granted the various traffic rules that apply to riding an electric skateboard in a given area. It's important to know them before you hit the road, as ignoring the laws can result in expensive fines or worse.
Each state or territory may have different laws, so it's important to be aware of and understand the specific requirements of the area you're traveling to.
Always wear protective gear
All riders, no matter what your age, level of experience, or skateboarding location, must wear protective gear. The most common injuries when riding an electric skateboard are knee injuries from falls or injuries to your elbows and wrists when you extend your arms or elbows. Special equipment is needed to prevent these injuries.
Head injuries are the most dangerous, so helmets are a mandatory protective element that reduces the risk of head injuries to the rider. For girls with long hair, it's also better to braid it into a pigtail and wear it under a helmet. Don't use metal barrettes and hair clips, as they increase the risk of injury in the event of a fall.
Steps to ride an electric skateboard
Take the Veymax X3 electric skateboard as an example. By the way, this is a model that convincingly proves that there is something for skaters from 18 to 80 years old. We have a skateboard that can go up to 29 mph and maintain that speed for about 40 minutes.
Three simple steps:
- Turn on the skateboard with the wireless remote control, and hold the remote control in your hand until you leave the electric skateboard.
- Find a position that suits you, stand on the board and keep your balance. Then slowly press the switch on the remote to start the skateboard at a very slow speed and move forward.
- Start to practice simple maneuvers like going straight, slowing down, and turning.
And here are 10 tips for learning to ride an electric skateboard.
