ENDLESS RIDER: PHILIPP MARX SUNRISE SLIDES

Meet Philipp Marx. He is one of the most talented riders we know that brings his longboard sliding skills to the Mellow Board and totally shreds it up. After mounting his setup under the day's first sun rays he tells about the boardsports he loves and his feelings about e-skating. He then puts the Mellow Boards to the test with a few sunny slides!

Do you often go skating at sunrise? Not often due to my laziness.

What feels different from getting your speed from a downhill compared to the thrust of a Mellow Board?

The way you get to speed is different but once you get going it feels the same.

How would you picture an e-skate race track of the future?

In my opinion an e-skate racetrack should be a wild mix. Long straights for max speed, hairpin turns to test braking and acceleration. I'd surely add some bowl corners and big jumps partly for agility testing, but mainly just to keep things exciting.
