Keep on reading this article, and I am going to tell you everything about operating the hoverboard like a pro.
In my Guide of how to ride a hoverboard like a pro, I will explain everything step-by-step:

- And then yes, riding the hoverboard like a pro.
How to turn on the hoverboard
- You turn on the hoverboard by pressing the button on the hoverboard.
- To turn it off, you have to press the lock button on the remote, and it will turn it off.
- Locking and unlocking are operated by the same unlock button on the remote. If the battery’s light is green, then it is unlocked; if red, it means it’s locked.
There is a beginner present in hoverboards to assist the beginners. In this mode, the board will only move at the speed of 3mph, and it is half of its full speed 6.2 mph. To enable this mode, press the unlock button on the remote for three seconds, you will see a symbol sign (Mostly the brand name’s abbreviation) turning green. To switch it off, do the same on the unlock button.
*Note: Not all the hoverboards equipped with the beginners’ mode.
How to get on a Hoverboard
Put the hoverboard in front of you, make sure it’s charged up, and if you are riding it for the time, I recommend turning on the beginner mode.
Put your right/left foot on the hoverboard and make sure it is as close to the wheel as possible; the wider your feet are, the comfortable it gets to ride the board. Another thing that you need to make sure is to keep the board flat on the ground, which means it should be in level with the ground. Once your first feet are on the scooter, step on, don’t stress it, and lose balance. Just do it. Think of it as stepping on the stairs. To save yourself from wobbling back and forth, the best remedy is to look forward, not down, forward, and relax, loosen up.
Your first reaction will be to tense up, and this will cause you to wobble back and forth.
How to control a hoverboard
To move in forward and backward directions, lean toward the direction you want to move the hoverboard. Make sure to keep it as slight as you can; think about leaning but don’t lean too much; just shift your weight slightly. Do the same to move backward and to stop keep yourself straight.
My recommendation is to try moving forward first.
This is not as hard as you may think of it; naturally, you will feel like the scooter already has an idea of where you want to go. The foot opposite to your turning direction twist it forwardly; the board will take a turn. Let say you want to turn right. Just push the left toe forward. Practice it for few times, and you will get to it quickly.
Bonus Tip: How To Use Hoverboard sitting down
There isn’t a written technique on this one, once you get yourself familiar with the hoverboard riding, try riding it while sitting down, and you can do this.
