I've got so many people asking me "did you make it yourself?" which says a lot about exterior design maturity. The new o e looks even less professional!

I love the DIY/pro type of look, actually. Makes it more genuine.

I revived this thread as I'm seriously considering one...

What is the opinion of the owners? Still enthusiastic about it or it has faded out?

double F**k yeah!

Three seasons, 3000 km later and it's as good as the day I got it.

Obvious caution is a must. So intuitive it inevitably becomes dangerous.

One of my all time best gear purchases.

Well worth the purchase. I have had mine three years. A kid put it in the harbour during a kite-boarding event earlier this year and it stopped working. I pulled it all apart, dried it and put it back together and fortunately it has been fine since then.
The weight distribution skills are similar but different to foiling. Front foot weighting controls speed on a Onewheel whereas on a foil it controls trim.

Oh man, Someone put it in the drink?! That would have been a seriously tense moment for me.

I love that thing.

i have two, 1000 miles on one. Put the Hoosier threaded wheel on mine and it doubled the range.
I ride it everywhere.
