Inspired by some of the amazing build threads on here I’m planning to build myself an electric longboard.
Currently reading up on all the parts and thought I would use this thread to document it and get advice and tips.
I live in the UK, which could effect getting some parts

I want to have a rough idea of most of the parts before I start ordering so I can see how it’s all going to come together. I will update this as I know more.
This is my first build so feel free to give me thumbs up or say when things are not right.
Most prices are rough guesses at the moment.
