After the famous Casey Neistat got his Boosted Board taken away by Sydney Airport Customs Border Patrol, my dream of traveling the world with an electric skateboard feels a bit shaken.
As electric skateboards are continuing to evolve, in the world (and airports), the guidance from a variety of airlines on this subject matter is extremely vague, to put it bluntly.
Hoverboards Wreak Havoc on the No-Fly List
To makes matters worse, There are approximately 100 accidents reports stating that battery packs in self-balancing scooters AND hoverboards get too hot. And with the dangers of sparks, fire, and explosions, it’s no wonder 60 airlines have banned hoverboards from being brought aboard.
Thanks a lot, Hoverboard.
(Another reason why electric skateboards are better than Hoverboards)
But fear not! Electric Skateboards still have a chance!
