Found 28th Sep 2015
Hi Everyone.

I'm planning on buying one of these for my girlfriend for Christmas.
Although there's so many places to choose from and at loads of different prices im a bit stuck where to get one from.
I have a budget of £250 in mind for one.

Could anyone recommend a place to buy one from? As theres so many "pop up" companies now selling these im really not sure where to go to for a good quality board and a legit seller.

Thanks in advance.

P.S forgive me if I've asked in the wrong section or anything, this is my first question asked.

iirc they are illegal to use on public footpaths so without you own a lot of land suitable for using one on them I wouldn't bother.
i've seen people use these on public footbaths...
I got this one: http://www.extremetech.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/huvr-hoverboard-back-to-the-future-II-pink.jpg - just be careful if you use it on water, you need to make sure you have plenty of speed before you attempt it.

which one did you go for?

i would be interested in one of these for the wife as well
I will have a look later but I do recommend getting a bigger wheel than the normal ones ie 10 inch one.

Was contemplating buying one until i tried out a friend's board last week, fell and smashed my elbow
Gearbest have them now for an alright price, can use PayPal as well AFAIK, risk customs though.
Thanks for the info guys !!
@taiko could you let me now exactly which one you bought as i can see they come from different vendors on that site, also if you can keep us posted on your one please when it arrives

@taiko ​did you receive this?
with all these people looking to buy these for Christmas ....

..... it could well be the case that one or two things happen ....

The Police do clamp down on these and start issuing fines

and secondly A&E Dept are going to be inundated with accident victims over the festive season !

the first I would like to see the second not !

Yes - illegal - I don't see the companies selling it putting that on the box however "can only be used on private land". Hmmm.

The law making these illegal has been used to prosecute/fine once. Ever. Not likely to happen.
