Youtubers we like: Casey Neistat

Having almost eight million (7,760,300) subscribers on youtube, mr. Casey Neistat is strangely almost unknown in Sweden. Not so in the international esk8:ing community. Casey almost single-handedly created the current esk8 hype, all by himself, by being the world’s best known Boosted Board-rider. Recording his entertaining (and interesting) vlog, typically when travelling on his board…

Rule Britannia? The Ridge EL1 is a tiny esk8 for only SEK 2.000!

Stumbling over the Ridge EL1 on the internet, we couldn’t resist buying one. It was only SEK 2.000 (EUR 208) incl. shipping to Sweden. And that is not expensive for an esk8. This is such an unusual thing as a British electric skateboard. So will it be “rule Britannia” — or will it be BREXIT? We’ll…

Youtubers we like: Sara Dietschy — it rhymes with peachy!

One of the nicest youtube-experiences is Sara Dietschy. Her name does not only rhyme with peachy, she also has a lot of smart stuff to tell you about esk8:ing. And a lot more (she can teach all you need to know about youtubing as well). Subscribe to Sara’s channel and become a smarter person. You might…

Youtubers we like: Press Reset

Electric skateboards were kind of born out of the Youtube videos by mr. Casey Neistat (we love you, Casey). So why not present our favourite youtubers? First one to receive that special esk8.se-attention is Preston at Press Reset, USA. He always presents informative and fun videos regarding esk8. And makes me long for my home, back…

You need protection — and camouflage

Most esk8:ers ride without protection, which is like crazy. When falling from a board that moves at almost 40 km/h you are going to hurt yourself. So be prepared! Right now we are preparing a feature about helmets. Meanwhile, I just bought these kneepads and elbowpads; 187 Killer Pads combo knee & elbow pads Camo. Because…

“Put another shrimp on the barby!”

All over the world there are e-skaters and we are very proud to be friendly with ESK8 Sydney. Their videos makes us remember glorious backpacking days down under. Subscribe to their youtube-channel, smile and have a vegemite sandwich! And put another shrimp on the barby.

Cheap Tough Guy: Airwheel M3 Review

Product: Airwheel M3. Reviewer: Henrik Arnstad. I bought my Airwheel M3-board during spring and tested it for about a month, before I decided to return it. Anyway, for just SEK 4.000 it’s certainly not expensive. Here’s the pros and cons. Honestly, the Airwheel M3 looks kinda cool. A bad boy? A tough guy? Yea, ok. It has…

Tishies on the way

We’ve ordered some T-shirts and are planning to give one away, in some sort of competition. Meanwhile, let us know if you want to buy one (info@tricorder.se). Stay tuned!    

Yuneec E-Go2 finns i vanliga affärer

Den lilla brädan Yuneec E-Go2 är ett mindre skateboard-alternativ till de större longboard-inspirerade brädorna. Och den finns i vanliga butiker, som Teknikmagasinet och Webbhallen! Yuneec E-Go2 är dessutom relativt billig (cirka 6.000 kronor). Vi har kontaktat generalagenten i Sverige för att få låna en testbräda och hoppas återkomma med recension! Uppdatering. Vi fick följande meddelande…
