BoardUp is a company that have the ability to say that they have a world first. The BoardUp is the world’s first production self-folding longboard. It began life on Kickstarter and has gone on to become one of the most popular new brands to hit longboarding in a while.

So what exactly does that mean and how well does it work? Keep reading our BoardUp review to find 

What We Like About the BoardUp

The Folding Mechanism – This is what makes the BoardUp what it is. I can’t rave about this enough. It’s a brilliant piece of design that makes this longboard completely unique.

The Build Quality – With many other products out there that rely on one feature to sell them they are often very frugal with the attention paid to the rest of the product. This is certainly not the case with the BoardUp. The entire longboard is built and designed very well.

The Performance – I was fully expecting to have to compromise on the performance of the board with a huge hinge and weak point right in the center of the board. But nope. It acts and feels just as I would expect a longboard of this size and price to act. out.

Final Thoughts

If you’re looking for an exciting, innovative, and efficient way to improve your commute or getting around campus then the BoardUp is one of the best products on the market. The self-folding design works remarkably well and takes very little practice to become accustomed to. The rest of the board is as of a high a quality as the folding mechanism which leads to a great performance and some exciting carving. It’s also priced quite reasonably and should cost you no more than $200.
