nextboard

The idea of strapping some batteries and motors to a skateboard to create a portable, four-wheeled electric transportation option is nothing new. Electric skateboards have been done before, but they’ve never been done like the NGV Nextboard you see here because this electric longboard tops out as almost 70 miles per hour. Yes, you read that correctly. Even without a steel body, roll cage or other protective gear, you can hit up to 68 mph on this super light carbon chassis powered by four in-wheel motors controlled by proprietary software. Many people describe this as the fastest electric longboard on the market, and the performance specs more than back up those claims. We’ve done speeds that high on motorcycles and in cars, but it’s a completely different story when you’re doing almost seventy miles per hour on a skateboard. The NGV Nextboard might not be built for ollies or kickflips, but it goes so fast you won’t care.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
