History of electric skateboard

Gasoline-powered motor-boards went on sale in the summer of 1975, but were banned in California in 1997 for noise and pollution problems.

Modern electric skateboard is thought to be invented by Louie Finkle from Seal Beach, Calif. , whose first unplugged cable-free skateboard was launched in 1997 and patented in 1999. However, it was not until 2004-2006 that electric motors and battery technology had enough torque to effectively drive the skateboard.

Not until 2015 in the United States, Europe, and Australia has electric skateboard become gradually popular. In 2018 ,there has appeared on the market more than dozens of electric skateboard brands. More electric skateboarders and electric skateboard brands are expected in the future.

We strive to build EskateboardPark as the most authoritative electric skateboard platform.
