Best Christmas ever

Holy shit, this thing rocks! I was a commute skater for a little while as a kid. In the morning I did a few spins inside a gymnasium on beginner, got to intermediate on the return trip from 7-11 in the afternoon, and was expert by dinner time. Easily the best Christmas gift of the past decade. Next stop: hoverboard.

Are you ready?!

Ok, you have read the reviews, and yes the board is that good! Just buy it already! I’m glad I did, and holy cow! This board seriously rips, carves, goes up steep hills, descents like a boss.
The new remote is perfect, smooth throttle on and brake. Plus you can push the board like a normal skateboard! How freakin cool is that?
Like I said, I was in your shoes, looking for an electric board. You came to the right place, buy it, ohh you can’t because their sold out? That should tell you something right there if you ask me.
Solid board, solids electronics, solid power and torque. Let’s not forget how beautiful this board looks, and handles like a normal skateboard. I freakin love it!

Great Board - Works as Intended

I use it to get to classes about 1/2 mile each way. It works good on flat ground and hills. Acceleration and braking is a little touchy and takes a little time to get used to. The trucks needed to be tightened out of the box. Other than that, I've had no issues with this skateboard. It works great.

Handles so close to a skateboard!

If you love riding a skateboard, this is the electric board for you. Responsive board. The handles and size are commuter friendly. I commute with it every day, when its dry. Only small negative is that the standard remote can be very touchy, you can start or stop very fast with little movement on the thumb toggle. Waiting for the new controller to get in stock.


It's a really smooth ride
Everything was quick and easy to learn
The controller has a sensitive response so definitely have to be careful when u first take off lol
Very very happy with my purchase !

Great Gift

Bought the R1 as a gift for a star employee and he loves it! We rode together for an hour straight and had a blast!

2nd board

Pimping ain't easy but somebody's got to do it

Hands down best Electric board out there.

I have rode and tested out pretty much most of the brands and Riptide has built the best one. It has most authentic feel towards and actual skateboard and having handles on it is huge compared to other boards which makes them annoying to carry. Could not recommend this board enough.


I love it!!

Very happy customer

I’m beyond happy with my recent purchase so much so we’ve already looked into getting another board or two for the family. So more upkeep instructions for my board could’ve been a nice add on but aside from that this thing is the real deal. Thank you!
