Frequently Asked Questions

Is my Hunter Board ready to go out of the box?

Yes, it is. Your Hunter Board is shipped to you with 50% battery. We do recommend you to fully charge it before using it for the first time, but if you can't wait you can ride it.

How does the suspension system work?

Thanks to Hunter's patented suspension system, fully independent from the turning system, you can have all the shock absorption you need in a rigid deck.

What does this mean for you? It means that you won't have to worry about those nasty potholes, cracks and small debris on the road while having the superior handling and precise control of rigid decks at high speeds. You can learn how we designed our proprietary suspension system here

Can I go over any hole/debris on the road?

Your Hunter Board comes with an integrated suspension system with 53 mm of wheel travel. This means that you can go over small and medium sized holes and debris on the road and your board will absorb the vast majority of the shock, keeping your ride smooth and with minimum vibrations. Can your Hunter Board absorb the shock from bigger/deeper debris/holes? Yes, it can. You'll feel some vibration, but nothing compared to what you'd experience if there were no suspension system to absorb shock.

Can my Hunter Board get wet?

Yes, but only to a certain point. Your Hunter Board is water resistant, not waterproof. This means that you can ride it in some wetter environments like in the rain, but if you submerge it, it'll break.

Do you ship to my country?

We ship to all countries but North Korea.

Can I take my Hunter Board on an airplane?

Guidelines for airline treatment of lithium battery-powered electronic devices in passenger baggage are issued by the International Air Transport Association (IATA).


IATA’s guidelines stipulate that portable electronic devices brought aboard a passenger aircraft as either checked or carry-on baggage must have a watt-hour rating of less than or equal to 100Wh. Our battery pack exceeds 100Wh and will not be permitted on a commercial flight.


These guidelines are widely adopted within the airline industry but each airline defines its own regulations. We highly suggest calling the airline prior to travel, especially if you plan to take your board on an international flight. They have the final call on the subject.


Since the battery pack is easily removable, if you want to fly your Hunter Board you have two options:


1) Ship your battery pack to the your final destination and check the skateboard alone as luggage (if you're staying in a hotel just send them an email asking if they'll receive the package with your battery and keep it for you until you arrive);


2) Rent a Hunter Board battery pack at your destination using our service Rent the Power (only available in selected cities). More information on this soon.


You can always remove the  battery pack, place it in your carry-on, and check the skateboard alone as luggage. Just beware that IATA's guidelines are here for your safety.

What payment methods do you accept?

When should I service my board?

Can I ride in any terrain?

Since your Hunter Board comes with an integrated suspension system, you can ride anywhere you feel comfortable. It's up to you to decide. Just avoid wet areas like swamps or riding to close to a body of water. Your hunter Board is water-resistant, not waterproof. This means that it can get wet, but if somehow it ends up being submerged, we can't assure you it'll keep working.

It's very important to keep your electric skateboard clean. It'll give it a longer lifespan and keep it sexy.

Yes, at all times when riding any electric skateboard. Your life's too important to lose it just because it "looks cool" to ride without a helmet.

You can try but be careful. Don't forget that there's electric components inside of it. An extremely hard fall and you might break something not covered by warranty.

Your Hunter Board has a maximum speed of 55 kph (34 mph).

How do I brake?

There are two ways to brake/stop:


a) Stop accelerating, and the Hunter Board will gradually stop.

b) Brake.To brake pull the joystick to you in the opposing movement you'd do to accelerate.

When you make a full stop place your right foot (if you're "regular") or your left foot (if you're "goofy") on the ground, this is especially important if you're going uphill because it'll avoid you start rolling down the hill.

How do Ride Modes work?

The Ride Mode you choose is directly connected to the acceleration curve, braking and top speed of your Hunter Board. There are four ride modes in your Hunter Board:


Eco - Excellent for beginners and if you want to save battery.

Fast - Perfect for riders who want to relax and still have a good amount of power under their feet.

Sport - Full power and speed.

Rain - Softer acceleration and braking to help avoiding slips.

After this, simply connect the battery to the charger we sent with your Hunter Board and your battery is charging.

How many charges will I get out of my battery?

You can get between 500 to 1000 charges from your battery. We're not able to give you an exact number because, as with all batteries, this depends on how often you use and charge your board. The Hunter Board's battery cells have been heavily tested and are highly reliable. You can rest assured that they won't fail you.
