Gave the one back a week and a half ago that I was lent to learn on. Now I miss it and want one. Not in the budget though. Funny for something I originally thought was not interesting, but I apparently did get hooked.

I ended up getting a Backfire board because it was relatively cheap and my friend has one.

I FREAKING LOVE THIS THING. I even kited yesterday, had to cut my session short because of social obligations, and was jonsing to ride the e-board.

Gonna definitely get a Onewheel now! I think I'll wait until there isnt so much of a lagtime before order to shipment.

I had it on advanced mode by my 3rd session (first one or two sessions were short too). The sensation of acceleration is pretty rad. In kiting, the force comes from your harness- so its disconcerting to have it come from the board. but I got over that quick.

I kind of poo-pooed the eskate because i perceived it as being used by folks too damn lazy and fat to ride a real skate board. Yes, that is true but only a tiny part of the picture. Riding this skateboard has been pretty fun. I rode my friends after I ordered one, and I almost regretted my purchase because I only did it a little and it was simply kind of meh- maybe because I was uncomfortable with it being someone elses board. But I'm pretty stoked on this thing now!!

thanks for the input guys!
