Britannia rules the electric skateboards? Reviewing the Ridge EL1.

The EL1 is an electric skateboard from Liverpool-based Ridge. It is inexpensive, small and light. Handy when travelling, good looking and quite fun. But is it good? After riding the board for a few weeks, we quite like it. The official price on the Ridge website is SEK 3,800 (GBP 350:-), but on amazon it’s…

Lokaltidningen Södermalmsnytt gör reportage om elektriska skateboards och ESK8 Sweden: Snabbt och smidigt glider Söderbon och författaren Henrik Arnstad upp för Sankt Paulsgatans backe på sin el-skejtboard. Runt 20 kilometer i timmen rullar brädan under hans fötter. Gas och broms sköter han med en fjärrkontroll. Reporter är Elina Lundberg och fantastiska bilder (samt video) är…

Mind your head! Here’s ESK8 Sweden’s Helmet Feature 2017.

According to medical expertise, head injuries pose the greatest danger to skateboarders. These can involve time in a hospital, permanent impairment, and — in extreme cases — death. Considering that electric skateboards are much faster than ordinary skateboards, head injuries pose an even greater danger to us ESK8:ers. So how about not being an idiot? Wear…

Hey handsome! Acton Blink S2 review.

Product: Acton Blink S2. Reviewer: Henrik Arnstad Having had our eyes on the Acton Blink S2 since spring 2017, getting it was both heaven and hell. Heaven riding it, hell buying it. But All’s Well That Ends Well, right? First of all, the Acton Blink S2 is just gorgeous. It is pure beauty. Its the best…

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…
