Do-it-Yourself Electric Skateboard

Posted by on 6/7/2016 to News

A do-it-yourself electric skateboard powered by a cordless drill? Farfetched? Maybe.

If you're just dying to ride your very own electric skateboard, but just can’t afford one, may have the answer for you. Igor, the owner of, has come up with a pretty creative way to modify a regular skateboard by rigging the wheels to allow a flexible drill bit extender to be attached. Connect that to a cordless drill and voilà, you have an electric skateboard!

We're not necessarily 100% convinced it would really work all that well and would still recommend an inexpensive, but REAL electric skateboard like the MotoTec 600W On-Road Electric Skateboard, which is only $447 (on sale) here on, but we absolutely give Igor props for his ingenuity!
