Is there that kind of "street sup" longboard philosophy where you have a roller on end of paddle shaft?

A strange new technology.....not really like skateboarding.....more like sup longboards....normal longboards.....and snowboards. Like an e bike with different power modes. Maximum legal ebike power in nz is 350 watts......this is 3000 watts

Was "day one" today. Have never been a skateboarder. But a lot of similarity with surf longboard. Did 10km on it....no carving.....just straight ahead cruising and getting familiar with remote speed/brake control. Didn't fall off.....so was a winner really :)

day four.....dialled back to "eco" really slow mode. Getting a gentle curving and carving thing going on.
But now....."old and frightened".....need to buy body armour......a confusing number of brands out there for knee pads....elbow pads.....wrist guards?....like those padded bum and hip guard shorts also

don't know what Aussie price is......NZ price about the same as a quality SUP.....$2200. Range with the all terrain tyres about 18km....much longer if you skinny. If you got smaller more like slick skateboard tyres much much further. Basically 3 speeds.....ECO....15kmh....Pro (going too fast for me)......GTR......gets you up to the 50kmh mark Is 3000watt (max nz ebike size 350watt).
Here i am.....no safety gear except for Gath helmet.....end of Day Seven....have done 95 kays Trying to access the kneepad elbow pad thing of course......still feels like longboarding to me :)
