SKATE BY

Think you’ve outgrown skateboarding? Take a spin on EXKATE'S X-24 electric skateboard ($1,200). Utilizing an electric motor controlled by a handheld wireless remote, the board rockets from zero to 22 mph in four measly seconds (don’t worry — the brake slows you almost as quickly), and has a range of 10 miles — approximately nine miles farther than a traditional board will roam before your kick leg cramps. Better yet, the Exkate’s long, wide platform is stable and forgiving, so even beginners can shred in short order. (415) 289-0177; www.exkate.com
