The Most Amazing Acrobatic Swegway Routine

Acrobat-swegway

We recently wrote a piece about the impressive hoverboard routine in Missy Elliot’s ‘Where They From’ music video. But this latest show piece beats that hands down! In this case hands down doing a handstand on a Swegway board, one handed at times and that’s just some of the awesome skills displayed in this video!

The performance shows insanely skilled gymnasts balancing, dancing and performing the most intricate of gymnastics moves all while gliding effortlessly on the electric scooters.

Choreographed by Kailey Maurer and Kelianne Stankus and performed to the tune of Justin Biebers ‘Sorry’ you’re sure to be impressed:

The concept of a hoverboard was made legendary by Marty Mcfly in Back to the Future II

When questioned what speed he was doing, the driver stated “he was doing 88 miles per hour.”

Police said “a 17-year-old man was charged and was in possession of a licence which expired over 30 years ago.”

“Investigations into the vehicle and what a flux capacitor is, are ongoing.”

The tribute by Queensland police has proved popular with Back to the Future fans worldwide.

Hoverboard Breakdancing in Missy Elliot Music Video

Hoverboard tricks have been taken to the next level in Missy Elliot’s new music video ‘Where They From’.

Although the hoverboard has been all over music videos recently, this is first time we have seen people break dancing on them, from rotating floats to handstands and all sorts of other crazy moves this video has it all.

The funky new video featuring Pharrell Williams, shows Missy with disco ball lips and a marionette of Pharrell. Missy Elliot even has a go on the Swegway scooter herself while her dancers show of their impressive tricks on these awesome hoverboards.

Boris Wants Hoverboards Legalised

Boris Johnson Wants Hoverboards Legalised

We all think the hoverboards ban is ridiculous, even Boris Johnson gets it, he might not know what to call it but at least he understand how absurd it is.

Boris Wants Hoverboards Legalised

After speaking with experts at London’s transport department, the Major of London said he wants to put an end to “this ludicrous and nannying prohibition on the electric scooter-surfboard gizmos.”

The electric scooters are banned under the 1835 Highways Act, which came about when electricity was still in its infancy. To put it into perspective, Michael Faraday invented the electric motor in 1821. The act states you cannot use pavements to “lead or drive any horse, ass, sheep, mule, swine, or cattle or carriage of any description” – and that includes self-balancing scooters.

A 1988 law bans them on roads, as motorised vehicles must be registered and the rider licensed and insured.

The Major of London said “Well, I have consulted Transport for London (Surface Transport) experts, and they think this hogwash. They are a new and potentially liberating form of personal mobility.”

“We want to legalise them…” he said, and described such a move as “intergenerational fairness.”

We expect this to be overturned swiftly and for the UK to catch up with France, Germany, Ireland, Italy and the US which all allow swegway boards on pavements and cycle lanes.

Will riding your Hoverboard get you arrested?


In light of the recent statement by the Crown Prosecution Service banning the use of Swegway boards on roads and public property, two Londoners put the so called ban to the test.

Will riding your Swegway board get you arrested?In the YouTube video the two friends rode their boards in front of police vans and on-duty officers, even one outside the Houses of Parliament to see if they take the legislation seriously. Not one tried to stop them.

In a funny scene one of the men rides past a police officer, when a passer-by asks “Aint that illegal?”

The man replies “Nah I’m just badass.”

He then asks the officer “Are you going to arrest me?” The officer appears not to be interested.

In another scene one of the men takes a selfie with a policewomen while on his board, the office looks happy to join in the fun and even has a go on the board herself.

The video ends with a caption saying “So are swegway hoverboards really illegal? If so, why didn’t any police stop me? Make sure you show this video to all your friends that were scared to ride their segway!”
