Episode 109 - Riptide R1
Here we go! Let's talk about the electric skateboard. In episode 109, I got to speak with Eric Birkemeier from the company Riptide. The Riptide R1 Electric Skateboard packs massive power (1800W) into a compact, 31" deck. The R1 has up to 8 miles of range and a top speed of 20 mph, and packs in features such as handles, a kick tail, headlights/tail lights, and an airline friendly battery. It was awesome for me to hear about how Eric started his new company Riptide and what his plans are for his skateboards.
