Is this kinda what you are talking about designing: http://www.leiftech.com
They've taken a Freeboard, http://freebord.com
and mounted and electric motor.
Haven't tried either, but it definitely looks like fun. Anyone tried either of these and able to talk about how similar it is to kiting in waves?
The Evolve GT looks sick. $2k for an electric skateboard, holy shit.
One of the challenges with the freeboard is having to climb hills, since there is no chair lift. Kinda kills the endless wave feel. Most electric skateboards max out at a 20% grade. Looking for something that climbs hills and yet is light enough to strap on my back on the descent with the freeboard.
