Tony Hawk, would you approve of an electric skateboard?

Skateboarding legend Tony Hawk is now 43 years old. So maybe he's ready to move from a self-propelled skateboard to an electric one, and the easier ride.

At a pricetag of $2,875, we're not sure how many other skateboarders could afford to make the jump to this RoamBoard Custom by LiquidRoam, but Tony Hawk certainly can, considering his estimated net worth.

After two years of testing, developing and refining, the RoamBoard, an electric skateboard, hit the marketplace a few weeks ago.

From the LiquidRoam website:
The wait is over... Roamboarding marries the feel of surfing and snowboarding, putting it to the street for the first time ever!"
The electric skateboard features a 12-mile range, a top speed of 15 mph, a six-foot turning radius, a hydraulic disc brake, an on-board charger and custom colors to make any skill-level skateboarder look cool.

So, Tony Hawk, what do you think?

Thanks for the tip Boardistan!
