The plot thickens! Digging a little deeper than the not-so-skateboard-obsessed Gizmodo, I came across the UK based parent company for the USurfer. (U Suffer? Har har..) named Urban Mover. Remember the BMW Streetcarver? Well apparently Urban Mover does. They offer not one, but two models based on Streetcarver over-engineering.
Urban Mover makes all kinds of
hippie-shit electric powered personal movers from skateboards to bicycles and scooters. What happened to the Streetcarver? The web site is down, so I guess nobody wanted to spend $500 on a heavy sled of a skateboard with proprietary trucks. With the USurfer you don’t have to worry about the weight. All you have to worry about is the embarrassment of riding what looks like an electric wheelieboard. Speaking of, Why can’t I find a picture of that infamous extra-truck on the kicktail plastic skateboard? A little help please!
