How Did We Choose?
We must say that although these are cheap options, they are not low-quality ones.
We have very specific criteria for selecting the best boards out there. Here they are:
First of all, the board should meet our criteria for the price. Boards over $500 were eliminated. We looked at boards from $200 to $400.
However, boards under $100 were not chosen. This is because there may be safety concerns with electric skateboards that are too cheap.
It’s quite unreasonable to price the board at such price considering all the costs of making it.
We also reached out to other customers to see what their experiences are. Do riders enjoy riding the skateboard? Are there any electrical issues with the board? How was the customer service?
We also looked at the brands. Obviously, we don’t want to recommend bad brands to you. We want brands that are reputable and deliver what they promise. Those that pass this test are the ones that are worth your money.
Hurbo Electric Skateboard
The first one on our list is this Hurbo Skateboard. It’s also the cheapest one. The deck is 35.4 inches long, which is pretty decent for a regular skateboard.
It can go up to 20 km/h (around 12.4 MPH). This is not the fastest, but it’s definitely acceptable. You can control the board with a wireless remote controller.
The board is IP54. This means it is dust resistant and can withstand splashing water well. You can ride this in light rain and not worry about the water splashes damaging the circuit.
To charge the board, you can use the USB charging cable. This is very similar to the charging cable you use for charging your phone. It takes around 1.5-2 hours to reach 100% battery.
Is the board heavy? We think it’s not that heavy at all. The weight of 6 – 10 lbs is pretty manageable. Kids can also ride this skateboard for fun as well. It’s safe and fun!
Miageek Youth Electric Skateboard
Next up, here’s Miageek skateboard for you. It’s the same price as the Hurbo one. The speed is also quite similar. It goes as fast as 12 MPH.
The deck is made from maple. In fact, there are 7 layers of maple stacked on top each other, giving you the highest-quality and most durable deck.
The board can hold riders up to 286 lbs! Heavier folks will have no problems riding this board.
This model takes in a wide range of input voltage, specifically from 110-240V. You can safely charge it with the electricity from your wall outlet if you’re in the US.
The board is also water and dust resistant. You don’t have to worry about those environmental factors damaging your board.
Hiboy Electric Skateboard with Wireless Remote E-Skateboard
Here’s a little more expensive e-skateboard from Hiboy. This skateboard passed the UL-2271 safety standards. You can ride this without any worries about electrical issues.
The board is light compared to some other models. It’s only 8.6 lbs. There are 4 different riding modes that you can easily control with a remote controller.
The max speed of this bad boy is 12.4 MPH. You can certainly ride it around town or school in style.
Hiboy is also protected from moisture. But, don’t use it on very wet roads as this may damage the inner circuits.
We really like the design of this board. You can have a playful experience with this powerful and high-performing skateboard. Plus, it doesn’t break the bank

WOWGO 2S (38″) Electric Skateboard
Although they call this a skateboard, we feel like it’s more of a longboard. It’s over 36 inches long. Technically, that’s longboard size.
Why is this baby more expensive? Simply, it’s much faster. Yes, if you’re a speed lover, you’ll definitely get excited about this skateboard.
It goes up to 24 MPH. What’s even greater is that you can climb hills with this one. It can go up and down hills about 25-30% steep compared to a flat road.

The best thing of all is this board is very quiet. It won’t bother you with noises at all. You’ll love this awesome board.
Teamgee H5 37″ Electric Skateboard
This is a $400 skateboard that we want to introduce to you. Again, it’s more expensive because the motor is much more powerful. Specifically, it’s 760W.
With such power, you can expect to travel up to 22 MPH on a flat road. It’s one of the thinnest boards there is on the market. Yet, it’s made up of 10 layers of maple.
You can safely ride at night thanks to the smart indicator lights. You can go up and down hills easily with the board.
Thanks to its concave deck, you can make deep, sharp turns effortlessly. The big 90mm PU wheels also offer you the best grip and roll your money can buy.
