Scarpar Powerboard Trumps Ordinary Skateboards

By Chris Scott Barr

Skateboarding has never been my thing. I remember buying one when I was a kid and spending a couple of weeks trying to ride it. Then I realized that I could go faster with less effort on my bike and promptly forgot about it. The next time I buy anything that remotely resembles a skateboard is either when someone actually makes a hoverbaord a la Back to the Future or when this Scarpar Powerboard comes out.

This awesome motorized skateboard can do everything its non-motorized counterpart can’t. In addition to scooting along by itself on the pavement, it’ll go off-road on dirt, grass, sand and even snow. Take that, crappy skateboard. Sure, it doesn’t look like it has a great turn radius, or that it goes very fast, oh and you can’t do tricks either. Still, if this thing weren’t still in development, I’d buy one.

  1. As far as saving energy is concerned, an increase in small engine vehicles are the way to go in order to shake our dependence on big engine cars. For example, motorized skateboarding is a recent phenomenon but one that has taken society by storm. You can find more stuff on including the use of skateboards as an effective means of urban transportation.
