What you'll do

We will meet at Lewis MacAdams Riverfront Park and go over the safety basics of riding an electric longboard. We will put on safety gear, helmets, knee pads, elbow pads and go over how to use the remote control to slowly accelerate and gradually build up speed and learn how to brake. We will start out slowly and go over how to watch out for bikers, pedestrians and dogs on the bike path before we ride a 5 to 6 mile stretch of the scenic river path. If you just want to experience the ride without standing and balancing on the board, you have the option of sitting on the board like Super Mario Cart. I will provide a comfortable box seat with a cushion so that you can confidently ride sitting down with a lower center of gravity. We will ride up and down the river path and observe wildlife like ducks and cormorants lounging at the river. I will go over a brief history of the origins and importance of the historic L.A. River. We can end our tour with a stop at a local neighborhood coffee shop like La Colombe or if the weather calls for it grab a beer and a bite at Spoke Cafe or Salazar. (Food and drink are not included in this experience). Or part ways and call it a day.

Marvin

With the advent of electric technology I can truly say that one of the most fun and enjoyable activities I like to do is ride electric skateboards. I have ridden regular boards but nothing can describe the feeling of gliding like you're on a magic carpet ride. Electric skateboards have a feeling similar to surfing, you don't have to go fast to have fun and be safe. It is a therapeutic activity that puts you in a state of flow, sharpens your focus and enhances your awareness. I think everyone young and old can ride on an e-board to forget their worries and stress.

Where you'll be

We will explore urban wildlife ecology and just enjoy the view. Maybe stop for some coffee at La Colombe or drinks at Spoke Cafe and tacos at Salazar if we get hungry. More importantly we will explore how it feels to ride on a super quiet electric longboard and explore the smooth river path cruising through the L.A. River.
