Step To Fold
Simply step on the kick pad to allow BoardUp to stand up for a quick pickup
Unfold with style
BoardUp is built to withstand your riding style
Designed for travel
Locks safely when unfolded
Our patented BoardUp is constructed of an aluminum kick pad and locking hinge that make the folding action possible. By pressing down on the kick pad with the board flat on the ground, the hinge’s locking mechanism is released. If the board is unfolded to ride, the hinge locks to prevent the board from coupling. This patented hinge enables riders to cruise over curbs without the board folding. This patented mechanism guarantees safety and durability throughout all your travels
“It’s folds like origami, but sturdy like tree” – Kickstarter Backer“Bloody Brilliant” – BoardUp Fan“I would use that thing all the time to ride to school. I don’t have a locker big enough for my board so my teachers yell at me if i bring my it to class” – Youtube Video Comments

Same compact design that you’ve come to expect.
Standard wheels and bearings allow for additional flexibility to customize your ride experience.
Smooth wheel bearings(ABEC-9) provide the stability you need to allow you to carve with ease.
Embedded handle for convenient transportation
Dimensions: 33″ X 8.5″ || Weight: 8.7lbs || Truck Length: 6″ Kingpin || Deck Material: Canadian Maple/Glass fiber
Hinge/Kickpad Material: Aluminum alloy || Wheel Size: 75mm X 52mm (High 80% re-bounce PU material) || Bearings: ABEC 9
Folded dimensions: 17″ X 8.5″ X ( 3″ on top, 5″ on bottom) well fit all normal size backpack.
Trucks and wheels can be replaced by any standard ones. Need to re-position truck on deck(extra 4 holes pre-drilled) if wheel size is > 83mm.
We recommend the Kingpin truck as it is usually low in height. You may choose to install the reverse Kingpin truck, though it will increase your board’s thickness when folded.
The wheel and board rear edge may not aligned when fully folded. In this case, try to use different size of wheels. The reason is that each truck has a different dimension, the distance from the axis to the baseplate edge are vary among different brand trucks.
Frequently Asked Questions
What's improved in V3 BoardUp
I heard a lot of great suggestions from users. Also of course problems that need to be improved. Here is the list of what we have improved.
Bearings are in higher quality. can run quite longer.
Wheel material improved. it is high re-bounce resilience, Together with better bearings. BoardUp is now can run 40-60% longer with one kick.
Deck is slightly improved. stronger for later batch. supports wheel size 70mm, 75mm, 80mm,81mm,( width < 53mm)
Riser pad is 2mm thicker. Now it is 4mm
The truck is 4mm taller. and the kingpin is less tilt. so it can support sharper turn. Also the truck looks better then V2.
The Middle hinge has both edges cut. Together with now the deck being 6mm higher. It is much less likely to touch the ground when making sharp turn unless it is next to the road high bump.
Improved middle hinge makes locking more precise and tight. no wobble, won’t feel small gap between the locked two piece of hinge.
Re-designed the kickpad, so that user can replace both truck with his/her favorite ones. and cable won’t snap no matter how big the kick force applied.
Kicking and folding is easier. as the deck opening on the nose for kickpad is 6mm wider.
Changed the way to adjust the cable tension. It is easier now. just turn the nut linked with cable end under the kickpad
Based on the feedback from V3 customers. They said I love V3 more.
Is the BoardUp longboard water proof?
Yes. While the materials are waterproof, water can rust away metal over time so we recommend drying your board after it gets wet. This will ultimately extend the life of the board and retain its durability.
How much weight can BoardUp handle?
While the board is in fact split in the middle, it doesn’t compromise on strength. BoardUp® V1 is tested to withstand 400lbs. V3 is tested to withstand 250lbs( because V3 is 4inch longer then V1, even though the deck is one layer thicker)
Can I use custom wheels/trucks on my BoardUp?
Any version of BoardUp will accept standard-sized wheels (70mm X 50mm) and bearings. In regards to trucks, BoardUp V1 and V2 require the proprietary BoardUp trucks. However, BoardUp V3 supports all standard trucks thanks to our engineers!
What if the cable stops working or snaps?
We take such pride in our quality of manufacturing that we extend our coverage to one (1) year when it comes to our patented cable and locking hinge. If you experience any issues with the cable or locking hinge, reach out to us via "Contact US"and we’ll take care of you!
Here are things NOT covered in the manufacturing warranty: cosmetic damage from riding, wear and tear, intentional damage, lost/stolen board, or issues stemming from alterations or customized changes to the original product.
Does BoardUp fold while riding?
BoardUp’s® patented locking hinge holds the deck open while riding and only folds up when the kick pad is engaged at the proper angle. This limited angle of action from the kick pad ensures that the rider won’t accidentally collapse the board while cruising.
The board in Braille Skateboarding's YouTube video looks different, what's the difference?
The board Aaron Kyro used in his video was our first version of BoardUp® and has since seen some upgrades in design.
The locking mechanism that holds the longboard from folding is stronger and re-designed smaller with the same strength
The Kick Pad on the board’s nose is now aluminum alloy which cuts down on weight and provides a more durable pad for stomping
We refined the deck’s design for a more modern look. Both in the graphics side of things but also the form of the board. Our deck layout around the wheels now allows for harder turns without wheel biting.
So much fun with it ! Quick delivery.
Just need to improve my skills now!
At first I was a bit skeptical about the board'strength when you try to jump or just get off a sidewalk.But in fact it is super strong and easy to use.
I use it almost everyday to go to my work.
Received the boardup faster than expected, in 3 days! Cheers Luxebackyard and especially Jim from the support team for his advices about the board.
Thank you Brad! Have fun!
This is my first experience…
This is my first experience longboarding, skateboarding, or otherwise. I am 6'5 and 210+ lbs with size 14 shoes and this holds me just fine. It's really great for my commute. I ride it to the Metro, fold it up and then ride about .5 mi from the Metro to work. I fold it up and store it under my desk! I save like 30 minutes a day now from my commute.
Quick delivery. Thanks.
The best folding skateboard ever.
I have been using this board for ~3 months and it has been wonderful! The build quality is solid, and the hinge has held up great with daily use. I switched from using a 29" cruiser to this and it was such a good decision. This is so smooth and just as convenient. I highly recommend this board. Thanks Luxebackyard for the quick delivery !
Best board for a lazy weekend around town!
Sitting here in my local coffee shop thinking how awesome it is to have this board. Wow it is so convienent. I wish I had this board in my college days, it would have been a dream. I took this board to a local skate completion (Exposure in Encinitas) and I got a million questions about it from all the local skaters. They loved it. This board rides like a dream and it is very well made for the price.
