As we said, riding a hoverboard does not come naturally to most people. Even if you’ve been on a skateboard before, a hoverboard is a little different. You will likely fall over at some point during this process, so be sure to wear safety gear and be in a bright, open space. Here’s how to use a hoverboard step by step:

Place your hoverboard on a flat, flat surface.
A flat surface is the best place to start, as it eliminates other obstacles.
Turn on the hoverboard.
Do not try to do this before turning it on, as it will not have the self-balancing function activated.
Place one foot on the plank.
Does not matter which. Position your foot so that it is as close to the steering wheel as possible.
Place your second foot on the plank.
Place your other foot on the board next to the other wheel for a wide stance. This offers the best stability.
Stand still and stand
Stand still and stand, getting used to balance.
Tip: Many hoverboards have learning modes designed for beginners; so if you are nervous about riding a board for the first time, get a board with these modes.

Here are some hoverboard tips:

Turn left
Push your right finger forward so your weight shifts in the opposite direction you want to go. Keep the other foot horizontal. You can also lean slightly in the direction you want to go if your foot material is messy.
Turn right
Push your left finger forward. Just like turning left, you actually shift your weight in the opposite direction of where you want to go.
Spin in a circle
To rotate to the left, push your right toes down while pushing your left ankle. To go right, push off your left toes and right ankle.
There’s no real “trick” to controlling a board when you’re going uphill, other than being cautious. The hoverboard’s specs usually tell you what degree of incline it can handle, but you can’t possibly see whether the hill in front of you is too steep or not.

How to Accelerate and Stop – How to Learn to Ride a Hoverboard
Hoverboards can reach speeds of 10 mph or more, but how do you get them to go that fast? When you move forward on a hoverboard by leaning forward a little, it will continue to accelerate as long as you continue to lean forward. If you have a mode that limits speed, it will go as fast as those limits allow. If you don’t have a speed limit, the card will continue until it reaches maximum speed. Many hoverboards emit a beep to let you know you’re getting there.

If you hear this beep, it’s time to slow down. Otherwise, the hoverboard’s motors can actually shut down and you’ll fly off the board. How do you stop? Stop leaning forward. Straighten up and lean over a little, but not so much that you start to back away. Its speed will gradually decrease until it is slow enough for you to exit.

How to Get Down a Hoverboard – How to Learn to Ride a Hoverboard
Getting off a hoverboard can be tricky. If you do it too quickly or skip it, it’s very easy to eliminate.

Here’s how to dismount safely:

  • Shift your weight onto your dominant foot.
  • Step back with the other foot.
  • Get out of frame completely.

How not to ride a hoverboard – How to learn to ride a hoverboard
You have an idea of how to fly a hoverboard now, but what are some things you shouldn’t do? No:

1. Bend your knees
You want to stay as straight as possible so your weight is spread out correctly on the board.

2. Look down
You don’t need to see your feet when you’re on a board, you need to see what’s in front of you. Looking at your feet can also confuse you and throw it all away.

3. Riding on terrain you are not ready for
If you’re new to hoverboarding, stick to the smoothest, most even paths until it’s easy for you. If you’ve got an off-road hoverboard, you might be eager to hit the sand and gravel, but you should master the basics before tackling rougher terrain.

4. Try skateboarding tricks
Traditional skateboards are flexible and designed for high-level tricks. Hoverboards are not. Don’t take your hoverboard to the skate park and try to fly down the ramps. Hoverboards are intended for traveling, not flying in the air.

Tips: Safety is so important when it comes to riding a board, so don’t take unnecessary risks or use your board in ways it wasn’t designed for. If it’s not an off-road hoverboard, don’t go off-road or try to go over the speed limits.
