Travel with an eSkateboard: Expert Tips and Regulations for the Adventurous Rider

Are you the thrill-seeker trying to blend the pulse of electric skateboarding with the zest of travel? If balancing on an eSkateboard propels you into ecstatic realms, imagine merging this adrenaline rush with experiencing new places. But before you weave through the bustling streets of Tokyo or coast the sun-dipped hills of San Francisco, you must navigate the practicalities—particularly when it involves traveling with your precious eSkateboard. Lucky for you, Miles Board is here to ensure your ride is as reliable overseas as it is in your local playground.

Familiarize Yourself with Airline Policies The surge in eSkateboards has many explorers wondering: Can I board a plane with my electric deck? Here’s your first checkpoint: airline battery regulations. Most airlines permit lithium batteries only if they adhere to specific requirements, generally measured in watt-hours (Wh). The magic number? Below 160Wh. Fortunately, models from Miles Board like the Dual and Phantom are designed not just for performance but also travel-friendliness, with battery specifications that usually fit within airline limits.

However, always check with the particular airline as policies can vary. Some might require you to carry the battery as hand luggage while checking in the board. Others might not allow electric skateboards at all. It's vital to call ahead and confirm, saving you potential hiccups at the airport.

Packing Tips for Your eSkateboard Packing an eSkateboard involves more than just tucking it under your arm. You’ll need a sturdy bag – ideally, a specialized eSkateboard travel bag with padded compartments to protect your board and its electronic components. Keep in mind to detach the battery if possible, wrap it in fireproof material, and store it in your carry-on luggage to adhere to Transportation Security Administration (TSA) guidelines. Also, bring along essential tools for assembly and disassembly, because you never know when you’ll need to make a quick adjustment on the go.

Understand Local Regulations and Etiquette Once you touch down, it’s tempting to hit the ground rolling immediately. But first, a deep dive into local laws and etiquette surrounding eSkateboards is crucial to avoid fines or, worse, your board being confiscated. Some cities embrace them; others regulate them strictly. You'll want to know speed limits, allowed areas, and whether helmet use is mandatory.

Embrace the Adventure with Miles Board Traveling with an eSkateboard is about injecting excitement into every glide and turn on routes unknown. Miles Board was founded in 2018 with a crystal-clear mission: to supply you with high-performance electric skateboards that intertwine reliability with the sheer joy of everyday adventure, wherever you are in the world.

As you chart out your next destination, embracing the possibilities with your eSkateboard under your feet — remember that Miles Board is with you, ensuring your ride is thrilling, safe, and utterly unforgettable.
