It’s no secret that e-skateboarding is an expensive hobby. That’s why we decided to curate this list of the best budget boards out there right now for those of you who are interested in getting into the sport but aren’t trying to pay an arm and a leg to do it.

Under $500

We like to call the Blink S-R the college student’s dream. Not only is the board under $500 out of the gate. It even has financing options that can place monthly payments as low as $14.

The 7 mile range can get you to and from where you want to go. A 16 mph top speed offers more than enough pull for you make that dangerously close exam start time. And the in-hub motors provide a quite, smooth ride all the way across campus.

It’s almost like they were targeting this exact demographic when they were designing the board…

PROS
– Front, tail, and side LED lights
– Monthly payments
– Free shipping in US
– 14 day money back guarantee
– 6 month warranty
CONS

They say great things come in pairs. Well, in this case – the 2nd edition flagship Meepo board has definitely come to shake things up.

There’s a reason there has been such a stir about this board in the community since it’s launch.. It’s flat out one of the better electric skateboards around.

That’s regardless of price tag.

If you’re looking for an all-around great electronic skateboard, there aren’t many that can compete with the performance of the V2.

PROS
– Smoother acceleration/deceleration than it’s previous model

Under $400

Dubbed the Boosted killer by some, the AEBoard AE1 had some rather unfair expectations to live up to for a “cheap” electric skateboard alternative.

Expectations, which we’re excited to say, it simply blew out of the water. This ~$400 electric skateboard legit competes with heavyweights like the Boosted, Inboard, and Halo Board.

The only reason we don’t have it on our Top 10 List is because it has yet to prove it’s merit as a long-term contender. Something that, by the way, is becoming less and less of a factor each day.

Competition beware – AEboard’s AE1 longboard is not to be ignored any longer.

PROS
– Top notch board at a budget price!
– Different battery options for different ranges (17/25/32)

CONS

PROS
– Kick push to start feature
– Swappable battery
– Replaceable urethanes instead of having to buy new hub motors
– 3 month warranty

CONS
– No water resistance

PROS
– Free shipping
– 1 year warranty

CONS

Under $300

When companies use the term A.I. I have a tendency to immediately roll my eyes in annoyance. Mainly because the word gets thrown around everywhere which way these days as a marketing tactic to the point that the term itself has become quite meaningless.

And while Swagtron is definitely not using the term A.I. in it’s intended form either, I have to give them a pass because they’ve at least tried doing some actual innovation.

For under $300 you can get an electronic penny board with posture control. Something that’s not only practically nonexistent in the eskating world, but also hikes the price up to well over $1k to the skateboards that implement it.

In other words, the Swagskate allows you to control the trajectory of the board simply by leaning your body and weight in the direction you want to go.

Making for a much smoother and intuitive ride when you get the hang of it. Well done Swagtron. We’re impressed.

PROS
– Can disengage motor within app for easier kick push
– LED battery level indicator on board
– LED Headlights
– 30 min charge with MagCharger
– Monthly payment options
– Free shipping
– 30 Day Returns

CONS
– Really low range

The Blitzart Huracane is a full length electric longboard built on a budget. A well balanced budget, but a budget nonetheless.

With a max speed of 17 mph and a riding range under 10 miles it fits perfectly under that $300 range.

If you like the style of this board but are looking for something with a bit more power behind it then the upgraded Huracane GT could be right up your alley instead.

But if you’re OK with having the budget option of the two focused more on practicality than extra frills, then the standard Huracane is for you.

PROS
– Can be kick pushed
– 3 month limited warranty for manufacturing defects

CONS

Yeeplay claims that their M2S electric longboard is the “best and cheapest electric skateboard” and honestly, they might be right.

This is a dangerously (in a good way) powerful board for the price. So much so, that we had a hard time believing that they were able to pack so much hardware into this longboard for such a low price tag.

This might be one of the rare cases that “SALE” prices are actually temporary events. As this thing could easily be sold for the $488 MSRP that’s listed on their website.

My advice: If you like what you see, get it while it’s hot. Cause the price could actually rise at any moment.

PROS
– Different battery options for desired range
– 25 mph top speed
– 30% hill grade capability
– 4 riding modes
– Lock function which works like a parking gear

CONS

It’s a little crazy how the $300 range skateboards have less range on average than the $200 ones but here we are.

The Atom H4 is very much a penny board designed for portability above everything else. It’s super nimble and a hell of a lot of fun but in short bursts. Please keep that in mind while making any purchase decisions.

This board is meant for short riding sessions and nothing else. Not for commuting across town… Unless you want to get some exercise after half way mark.

Still, for a budget board – Atom knows how to deliver quality.

PROS
– 2 speed modes
– kicktail
– can be kick pushed
– extremely portable

CONS
– Only really suitable for short commutes and riding sessions

Under $200

Remember that scooter brand that used to be all the craze back in the 2000s?

Yeah, those guys make electric skateboards now (among other things). And they’re pretty great.

With the quality standard that you’d expect from a major manufacturing company – the RazorX is one of the better options you’ll find in this price range.

Even though it’s marketed more for kids 9 years and older, this is an eboard that can easily handle the average adult for some fun short distance rides.

With a max weight capacity of 220 pounds and a 6 mile range per charge, this hidden gem has been flying under the radar for a while now. Which is why we wanted to show it some love right here while giving our readers another great option to pick from.

There’s not much to say here other than this is a solid electronic skateboard for under $200.

Ancheer is known for making more than just skateboards so this shouldn’t be that big of a shock. Unlike a lot of these new eboard companies sprouting out of nowhere trying to take advantage of the hype – the Ancheer Mini Electric Skateboard E200 is built to last.

And of course, to be a ton of fun.

PROS
– Quick slide booting: turns on the skateboard by kick pushing it
– 2 speed modes
– reverse capability
– carrying handle lol

Blitzart has created a beautiful compromise with the Mini Flash. It’s an incredibly cheap board with relatively impressive stats.

Add to that its unmatched rider weight capacity within its class and you have a surprisingly reliable electric skateboard that will do the job.

All for a fraction of the price of most eboards out there.
