- This first custom made DIY electric skateboard comes from Rik Cordero. You can follow his journey creating this board here.
We like this board for a few reason, but this design is sick! I’ve always been a fan of neon green wheels. Where Rik’s board really stands out is performance. His custom made electric skateboard can get up to 28 mph, which is REALLY fast compared to the majority of the electric skateboards on the market. Rik has done an excellent job on this board if you would like to find out more about this project such as the specs, or materials used please check out his blog RunPlayBack.com
