Step 1- Not all hoverboards (like rolab) are the same so it is important to look into what each board offers like the learning mode, which helps you ease into turning, spinning and foot placement. All of which are critical to practice before taking off on a longer run.
Step 2- When turning on your hoverboard, place your best foot forward and wait for the green light to turn on before placing your second foot on the board. The location of the light has nothing to do with which way to face your board. There is no front or back to the board so you can stand on whatever side you want when riding.
Step 3- To make sure you have enough battery power to start learning on your hoverboard, make sure that your battery is fully charged before taking off. Having your board turn off when you are practicing turning or spinning can cause you to become unbalanced.
Step 4- Making sure you are riding on a a flat surface will help you avoid any falls due to pot holes and uneven areas of the road. When your starting out, try an open area in your basement or even a park that is well-maintained.
Step 5- After getting on your board, push your front toes forward in order to take off. When turning, push your toe in the opposite way of which you are turning. For example, when you are turning left be sure to push your right toe forward and keep your left one still.
Step 6- When you are ready to get off your hoverboard you will need to stop pushing your feet forward and get off the same way you got on. One foot at a time, starting with your most dominant one.
Step 7- Safety First! Always make sure that when you are starting out on a hoverboard that you have the correct safety gear such as a helmet, knee pads and even wrist guards. Falls are common when starting out so it is important to protect the most important parts of your body, especially your head!
