Why ride an electric skateboard?
As you well may know we are all about electric transport. It is one of the fastest-growing modes of transportation due to its maintenance cost, zero carbon emissions, and convenience of transport. An e-skate board can change your commute to work drastically by allowing you to avoid busy public transport and getting you there in a safe, quick manner. Also, it's just pure fun, being a part of the e-skate community and allowing endless amounts of outside rides.
A brief Meepo History
In April 2017, Kieran Mao, a skate obsessed visionary, built an electric skateboard for himself and showcased the innovative board on YouTube. In doing this he caught the attention of the electric skateboard community and was inundated with orders. As the demand for his state-of-the-art boards increased, Kieran, an engineer at the time, quit his day job and Meepo Board came into being.
His uniquely shaped concave deck design spoke to electric skateboard fans, as their first version the V1.5 became a best seller in the US. The demand for their boards increased allowing their team to hire a dedicated and qualified team since day dot.
The demand for their boards further increased and viral marketing across platforms further boosted the order volume. This allowed Kieran to start hiring a dedicated and qualified team that has been growing since day one.
All Meepo boards are handcrafted on-site in Meepo’s Shenzen factory. Over 120,000 Meepo Board riders in 70+ countries have fallen in love with electric skateboarding.
