"We believe trying new things can be scary, but it can also be a helluva lot of fun and can be empowering, too. Everyone should be able to do it, at ANY age."
10 years ago, out of his love for skateboarding and his desire to teach his friends and family, Tom Wang, our founder, started crafting a stable and easy-to-learn skateboard that's fun to ride and convenient for everyday use. On Oct. 18, 2016, the well-refined design concept was named Elos, which stands for "Effortless Lifestyle of Skateboarding," became a reality with the support of over 600 Kickstarter visionaries from around the world.
Within a year of the successful Kickstarter campaign, the Elos team has personally helped more than 1,500 people to learn skateboarding. Thanks to its unique design, over 3,000 people from 28 countries have been able to learn to skateboard in an easy, effortless style. A good number of Elos riders were absolute beginners with zero skateboarding experience. They thought skateboarding was an extreme sport that was difficult to learn and required a lot of athleticism. But after the first day of deciding to try it, they have since been enjoying the fun and convenience of Elos skateboards.
Life is supposed to be fun. With the idea of bringing love to friends and family, Elos was designed with a modern and convenient style for everyday use. It is a skateboard that is friendly and approachable, a skateboard that brings you closer to your loved ones, and a skateboard that helps you discover what free-flowing happiness is all about.
Elos, a skateboard about fun, love, and community. A skateboard for everyone.
