ENDLESS REASONS TO GET AN ELECTRIC SKATEBOARD

It's just a rich kid's toy, right? After all, what use could anyone get out of a long-distance, lightweight, stash-anywhere, super-fast way to zap around a city faster than you can change channels on that flatscreen TV you've been Netflixing in front of for the last 48 binge-filled hours? C'mon, who's never wanted to teleport? Who's never wanted to surf?
