Skateboard, as transportation
Longboards available today don't offer the ability to perform sharp turns. Its safety is much more dependent on its user's skill level.
Most longboards available today have a heavy-looking form. Which is unfitting for a fast product like skateboards.
To change/swap the batteries of a longboards is a hassle. A screw driver is required and it takes minutes to unmount and remount.
