Linky Longboard

Skateboards are fun for many and is a cost effective mode of transplantation. Whether you are zipping around in a major city, out with friends at a park, or just want to enjoy the great outdoors – a  longboard is a way to have fun.  If you are not familiar with longboards, its just like a skateboard but bigger and usually faster. Many people use  these larger boards for cruising, sliding, downhill racing, and a simple mode of transportation.

One of the biggest problems with having a longboard is what to do with it once you have arrived at your destination. Since they are big in size it can be tough to carry around and unlike a bicycle, you do not just ‘lock-up’ a board. A new board called Linky seems to have solved this problem. Linky has created a foldable electric longboard that seems to not only be fun, but its portable. It can be stored in a small bag that you can carry or wear it as a backpack.

Operating Linky is a breeze as it has a simply remote control to allow you to increase your speed and to brake. The board also regenerative braking to allow for recharges when breaking, especially going downhill. There is a USB port that allows you to recharge your Smartphone or other portable devices.
