If you enjoy skating on longboards but find them a little hard to transport, you may be worth giving a new folding longboard a little more investigation. Being marketed as the world’s first self-folding longboard the BoardUp has taken to Kickstarter and already raise the required funds it needs to go into production.
Check out the video below to learn more about this unique folding longboard which is capable of carrying up to 400lb of weight. The Kickstarter campaigners now come to a close but pre-orders are probably still available by contacting the designers direct.
BoardUp is the world’s first patented self-folding longboard, requiring no hands to fold. It’s easy to fit in your backpack or locker, by your desk, or even in an airplane compartment. Now, you can longboard anywhere in the world with ease. When it comes to riding, keeping that familiar feel was important to us. More than that, having a longboard made with quality materials provides a feeling of security when your bombing down neighborhood hills and cruising on the streets.
Say goodbye to extra straps to secure your longboard to a backpack and oversized longboard backpacks. BoardUp fits within any standard backpack for on-the-go fun!
