Electric skateboards are all the rage this summer, but how do you find the right one for you? We have all the answers you need...

Summer is here, and the warm weather makes it the perfect time to get outside and play, whether you're a kid on summer vacation or an adult who's just been waiting for the warmer weather. Electric skateboards are a great way to get around now that the weather is more pleasant, but if you haven't picked one up yet, here are some of the best on the market right now.

5. Inboard M1

This is one of the best electric boards currently available. It runs around $1,400 and has a handful of features that set it apart from other boards, including regenerative braking that helps recharge the battery, and swappable batteries so you can keep riding without having to stop to recharge your batteries. You can also connect it to Bluetooth to monitor your battery life — but even if you run your batteries all the way down, you can still use it like a regular skateboard.

4. Boosted 2nd Gen Dual+

This boosted electric skateboard is good for climbing hills, which many others can't manage. It's got a top range of 14 miles with the upgraded extended battery and a top speed of 22 miles per hour, which makes it ideal for skating around town or commuting to and from work. One of the best things about this one is that it only takes an hour or so to charge, plus it can accommodate riders up to 250 pounds.

3. Maxfind Electric Skateboard

In most cases, you won't want to take your electric skateboard out in the rain. With this board, you absolutely can. The dual motors are waterproof so you might not want to skateboard in the rain but you don't have to worry too much if you get caught in an afternoon thunderstorm. It's got a top speed of just 17 miles per hour, but the board itself only weighs 12 pounds so it's easy to tote around.

2. Acton Blink Lite

This is one of the lighter skateboards on our list, weighing only 7 pounds. It doesn't have a ton of power, with a top speed of only 10 miles per hour, but it's a great beginner board. It’s equipped with regenerative braking to help charge the battery as you’re boarding and has onboard LED lights ideal for evening or night time boarding. It’s ideal for even the youngest riders thanks to the lower top speed.

1. Halo Board

This is easily the best board on the market today. It weighs 14 pounds, with a 12-mile top range and a fantastic 3000-watt motor that can carry you up grades ranging to 25 percent. The digital remote displays battery life, speed and allows you to control it in both forward and reverse.

Halo Board was voted the best electric skateboard of 2018 for a variety of reasons. The carbon fiber board is lightweight but durable, and the dual in-hub motors provide even power and balance for experienced and inexperienced riders alike.

Halo Board Tops All

If you're still trying to find the best electric skateboard for you, you can't go wrong with one of these — but if we have to recommend one, the carbon fiber Halo Board is our top pick.
