Learning how to ride a hoverboard should be as simple as riding a bike (or lesser). With the help of some basic tips, you should easily be able to maneuver your hoverboard and ride around easily. Failing to ride a hoverboard correctly can cause some serious injuries.
Here are some simple steps that you can follow to start using hoverboard. If you’re under 18, then try to have your parents (or other adults) around to help you with the steps. The first step should be choosing a hoverboard that fits your purpose. You can buy toy hoverboards for kids or golden hoverboards (more info) if you’re a pro.
Learn The Maneuvers First
Every hoverboard comes with a user instructions manual in its box. You can refer to that guide and see how the things works.
First of all, learn to carefully place your feet on the board, then try to move it back and fourth by applying some force with your feet. Lastly, see how you can conveniently turn your board right and left by applying some tilt of your feet. Remember that a hoverboard is always controlled by your bodyweight, so try to use your weight to your benefit.
Try New Surfaces
Initially when learning the hoverboard for the first time, make sure that you practice on a smooth surface with an easy landing (just in case you fall). Use that surface until you master the turns and other maneuvers.
Hoverboard shows the most efficiency or a though track like pavement or cement roads. Once you learn the board fully, gather some confidence and try new terrains. Gradually going from soft to though surfaces can save you from a serious injury.
Learn How To Stop
Learning to stop on the right time even more important than learning how to start the board. Many boards come with a built in feature that’ll make the board stop automatically once you breach a certain speed limit. Also, try to place your foot behind the board instead of stepping forward, as this can cause you to fall over.
