The Powerful, Remote-Controlled Electric Skateboards of Golden Gate Park

Sunday, February 8th, 2009

You see, this is why we have Healthy Sundays diverting cars away from JFK Jr. Drive in Golden Gate Park. It’s so people can zip along at 20 MPH on their .8 horsepower electric skateboards.

This could be you on your 2009 Altered Exkate Pro-Line 600. It’s only $600. Read the owner’s manual, read all the cautionary material, and skate, skate, skateboard.
