Skateboarding, electric or otherwise, is a dangerous activity. Naturally, appropriate precautions should be taken to mitigate the risks involved in riding. We strongly recommend that users learn and obey local traffic laws and regulations before riding their boards. Hoyt St waives all liability that comes with the use of Hoyt products. Other important safety precautions are listed below:
- Always wear a helmet when riding the board. Other protective gears like wrist guards, gloves, elbow and knee pads are also strongly recommended.
- Do not ride downhill on a full charge. To prevent dangerous over-charge, the board is designed to cut braking capabilities. Before going downhill on a full charge, dissipate some energy from the board first to allow for a safe ride.
- Ride within your capabilities. Hills and high speed can be very dangerous. Always assume you may need to foot brake and never ride faster than you can stop safely without the remote control.
- Never ride the board while under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.
