BoardUp – The Foldable Longboard
HOW DOES IT WORK?
By kicking the aluminum kick pad on the nose of the baord, the middle locking hinge releases and allows the board to fold up. Once the board is unfolded ready for riding again, the hinge locks back into place and prevents the board from coupling so the board is just like a normal longboard. When the lock is activated, riders can kick the tail of BoardUp® and it will lift up without folding. This patented mechanism guarantees SAFETY and DURABILITY.

BoardUp design is simple as I wasn’t expected. Initially I thought this foldable skateboard may fold when I ride over. or even break when I jump from 1 meter high. but it didn’t. It’s sturdy and safe. Very cool!Ian Page
I do a lot of extreme sports videography work that often has me riding along with the athletes. Boardup is the first longboard option that’s portable enough to bring on every shoot without sacrificing any board functionality. A+ highly recommended! .John Gotcher
I used the BoardUp for over 10days. I like this foldable longboard a lot more. it is lighter then what I thought. and pretty durable. well manufactured.Shall be a big sale.Chris Orsolits
I longboard to school often. difficult to find a place to store since the locker doesn’t fit. BoardUp solves this problem without sacrificing any benefits a longboard can provide. I love it.Alan Lu
I love longboarding, but BoardUp offers a better experience with a modern and compact design. There’s no way I’m going back to riding a regular longboard.Aaron Cantleberry
