THE FOLDABLE LONGBOARD
VERSION 3 IS NOW SHIPPING!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
BoardUp® has an aluminum kick pad on it’s nose along with a middle locking hinge that releases when the kick pad is activated. This process folds the board into half it’s size. Once the board is opened again, the hinge locks to prevent the board from coupling while riding. This patented hinge enables riders to cruise over curbs without the board folding. This patented mechanism guarantees SAFETY and DURABILITY throughout all your travels.

It is Sturdy
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!
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! .
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.
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.
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.
