Glideboards: Why walk when you can glide?

You’d have to be hiding under a rock to have not noticed the tech-savvy personal transport board making waves overseas. And if, like us, you’ve been daydreaming about joining our previous cover girl Kylie Jenner, effortlessly zipping around on her Glideboard, or share our goals of grooving like Chris Brown on his black colourway, or even being tackled off one by authorities like Wiz Khalifa, wait no longer. Glideboards have finally made their way onto our fair shores, and we’re certain these electronic boards will be the summer accessory.

Reaching up to 12kms an hour, Glideboards are controlled by your balance and we’ve experienced firsthand how easy it is to become proficient on this incredibly intuitive device - even for the clumsiest users.

All in all, we’ve fallen head over heels for Glideboards. They make even the most mundane chores entertaining - supermarket shopping, walking the dog, vacuuming - all become a novelty thanks to the slick, electronic boards. It seems our walking days are over.
