When I was younger, I would always be outside skateboarding till the streetlights came on. All the pushing and kicking really kept me fit. Nowadays, I have bad knees and I get shin splints. It’s impossible to get decent exercise without hurting.

This new electric skateboard is called the ZBoard. It’s a segway but in skateboard form. You lean forward to go and lean back to stop it. This board can go long distances and even travel up hills. Perfect since I live on a street that has a big hill.

The Zboard isn’t the skateboard that you can do kickflips and ride the rails with. The board is used mostly for giving your feet a break and saving you money on shoes. It also comes with a price tag that will set you back some money, around $1,000.
