Riptide R1 Electric Skateboard Unboxing, Two Week Review + Raw Footage

I received my Riptide R1 about 2 weeks ago and in this video I will quickly unbox the board and review the board over raw footage I recorded.

(close captioning should be pretty accurate if you want to turn it on and read along my review)

0:15 – Unboxing
1:52 – Review Starts
2:20 – Introduction of me and my esk8 experience
3:00 – Design (info/review on deck & wheels)
5:27 – Remote (info/review on remote & ride modes)
7:33 – Motor System (info/review on motor, acceleration/braking, & coasting)
11:04 – Battery (info/review on battery, range, air travel, charger, charger port)
13:20 – Extra Info (water resistance, modularity, wheel swapping)
14:29 – Final Thoughts

If you’d like to buy your own Riptide, this link will give you 10% off (Disclaimer: it’s a referral link):

Feel free to comment if you have any feedback or suggestions. I’d appreciate it as this is my first esk8 video.

If you’d like to follow me on Twitch, I do mainly Fortnite streams but occasionally stream my esk8 rides/group rides:

If you’re an old subscriber wondering what this is, I’ve decided to use this channel and shift it’s focus to electric skateboard videos and maybe occasional Fortnite videos (though I might just keep that to my Twitch streams).

Most reviewers of this board talk over their video because the “WHINE” of the motors are horrid!! sounds like a moped from the 80’s
