How to Balance on a Hoverboard?

Do you even know how to ride a hoverboard? With some practice and the help of our guide, you’ll be riding like a pro in less than 15 minutes. Let’s get started.

#1 Getting on the hoverboard

First and foremost, make sure your hoverboard is charged.Turn the power on and put it on the ground in front of you, with the LED lights facing forward. If your hoverboard has different ride modes, make sure it’s set on Entry/Beginner mode so you can start off easy.

Start by putting one foot on the hoverboard (preferably your dominant foot). Using this foot, put the hoverboard into an upright, level riding position. When you’re ready, lift your other foot off the ground and step onto the hoverboard. Don’t overthink it, just step on naturally like you’re walking up stairs.

These are designed to electronically balance you out once you have both feet on, so the hoverboard will help you. You could also try doing this next to a wall or something to hold onto in case your balance isn’t that great.

#2 Moving on the hoverboard

Now that you’ve gotten your balance down, you can actually start riding your hoverboard. Making your hoverboard move is easy, but there’s definitely a learning curve to it. It’s a simple concept: you move forward and backward by leaning, or shifting your weight.

You will probably wobble around at first, but that’s fine. It happens to all of us. Learning how to ride a hoverboard takes a little time. You will become much more stable once you get some real riding time in.

#3 Hoverboard turning!

Turning your hoverboard is a easy. Each side of the hoverboard is independent, so you can twist each side. Imagine you’re standing on the board. To turn left, push your right foot forward, and to turn right, push your left foot forward. This independent foot pressure gives the twisting motion that physically moves the board.
