Howdie folks,

Lots o discussion and debate regarding transportation options.

I am a kitesurfer with a fondness for snowkiting and NOW I can't wait for those in between seasons.

I like mountain boarding - easy freestyle stuff. But the dirtsurfer goes like 100mph and you can carve and swoop big beautiful turns. I can spend hours weaving in and out of the farmers hay bails. Dirtsurfer will go places the mountain board would not have a chance in hell. In fact how many manicured locations are there - not many!

The problem is they are Crazy expensive. You can buy a decent mountain bike for that money. I would suggest you look at one and build your own - it ain't rocket science!

They are a wee bit cumbersome at first so find a big ass field.

I am probably the only one in north america with a motor on the flexi Deck (for those non wind days) it runs about 25km/hr. and the battery lasts about an hour.

See ya

Well, I dont know about a flexideck, but I can assure you that you arent the only one with a motorized board. I have an official and original DirtSurfer*trademark* myself that i enjoy the hell out of as well. Doesnt do 100, more like 25mph, but it's still a cool toy.

You can watch an old photojam of it here...

You can check them out on this page...

And you can find videos of them in use at

NONE of the guys in the videos have the ballz to ride them like we do, but you can get the gist of it.
