A fiberglass and bamboo construction gives the board plently of flex for sharp carves.

Don't take our word for it! Check out their 5 star reviews. It's the perfect gift for any serious longboarder in your family.

2. Meepo Mini 2 Electric Skateboard

Since Boosted went down, we've been searching for the best alternative to fill the e-board shaped hole. Thankfully, we came across the Meepo. Yeah, it's basically a complete rip off of the OG Boosted Mini, but they aren't out of business and it's hella fun.

This electric skateboard makes cruising around easy. With a ton of great reviews, and the ability to go almost 30 MPH - it's truly unbeatable. Drop a comment if you have found a better alternative we should take a look at.
