Where did you hear about Evolve - 

While doing extensive research to find the most advanced technology and best designed battery powered 2 and 4 wheeled vehicles to be used for filmming, transportation and FUN, I came across Evolve boards. Fatefully and coincideally, i was on the set of Pirates 5 in Helensvale, on the Gold Coast of Australia. After a little digging I figured out that the creator/genius behind these board and the factory, were only a few km down the street. Crazy luck!

What do you love about your board  - 

Its the best technology if found and equally important, the best looking boards. But what i  actually like most, is how they ride. Literally, I don't use my car on the weekends on the Gold Coast, I go everywhere on my board.
