Based in Hermosa Beach, our team is made up of mechanical engineers with a passion for skateboarding, snowboarding, and surfing. We come from backgrounds in Robotics and Product Design, and are trained in a wide variety of disciplines including CAD, CNC Machining, Computer Programming, and Electrical Engineering.
The idea for the ZBoard came to us while brainstorming for our senior project at the University of Southern California in 2009. We were tired of our bikes getting stolen and having to push skateboards up hills and over Los Angeles’ streets and our goal became clear: design a device that is faster and easier to ride than a skateboard while being more fun and portable than a bike.
This project culminated after a three-year research and development process: studies of how students and young professionals live and move, design an electric skateboard from A to Z and adapt it to everyday needs.
Backed by our widely funded crowdfunding campaign Kickstarter, we designed, built and tested the ZBoard in California. Enjoy the ride!
