Power is peak power. Downhill braking on a full charge is effective but limited. More questions? Check out our FAQ.
Absolutely amazing creation that has been made hear! I’ve always imagined having a board that moves on its own and hear we have it. Boosted boards crossed my mind, but I’m so happy I spent the money on the riptide Instead! I’ve already road it every I can possibly take it. Now I just got to worry about me braking it from shredding the street a little too hard. Thanks for the board riptide
People stare at me like I'm the mudda fuggin G when I'm on this. SMH when I see people waiting for the bus and I cruise right past them like Aladdin.
Awesome setup hands down - brings a smile to my face every time I get on it.
I want to buy a second one for my cheap friends so they can ride with me.
