Australian Daz Fellows wants to ensure proper nomenclature is used when describing his modified street luge. Sporting twin-turbines with a combined output of 537 lb of thrust, and a custom formed board composed of carbon fiber, Daz has made clear that the conveyance he'll be climbing aboard when he shoots for a world record attempt of 300 mph (482 km/h) next year is a "jet luge."  Read More

The Ungoverned is a powered board designed to tackle everything from rocks to snow

In its early days, skateboarding was known in some circles as "sidewalk surfing," but lately we've seen a number of powered boards designed to leave the street behind and head off road. In 2009 we looked at one such prototype board known as the Scarpar Powerboard. The inventor of that board, Dan Baldwin, has now developed another prototype all-terrain board called the Ungoverned that is designed to tackle everything from rocks to snow.  Read More

The S-Walker Board combines aspects of a Segway, a balance board and a skateboard

Although it’s the major automotive manufacturers and their no-expense-spared world premieres that dominate IAA, German company S-Walker is holding a somewhat smaller-scale world premiere for its S-Walker Board. Combining aspects of a Segway, a skateboard and a balance board, the two-wheeled electric vehicle is set to hit the streets in the not-too-distant future.  Read More

The Brakeboard is being made as a complete board, although the rear truck is what makes it...

Longboard skateboards can travel downhill insanely fast, which makes the practice of downhill boarding look pretty scary to a lot of us. Add in the fact that the boards don’t have brakes, however, and it can seem downright suicidal. That’s why Australian boarder Benjamin Newman has developed the brake-equipped Brakeboard.  Read More

The Trace action sports activity monitor being developed by California's ActiveReplay pulls the hardware off the body and puts it somewhere more comfortable – on the board. It also adds some tracking functions geared specifically for board sports.  Read More
