WowGo Board Story
Jan 02, 2019
WOWGO was founded in August 2017 by two young entrepreneurs, Jason and Aiden. At the time, they were just two college graduates, working stable jobs, but lacking the passion for their careers that they desired. That all changed one day, when they stumbled upon a young man riding an electric skateboard. The look of pure joy on his face is an image Jason and Aiden will never forget, and it’s one that inspired them to take a step back, and reassess their goals and priorities. It was then, that they realized that life is about more than just working and getting through the day, it’s about enjoying each moment to the fullest. They wanted to somehow ignite joy, passion, and youthfulness in other peoples’ lives, the same way that the young skateboarder ignited theirs. The Result?... WOWGO.
Jason and Aiden started WOWGO from the living room of a shared apartment in crowded Shenzhen. From studying the mechanics of a skateboard, to polishing their first electric prototype, to the hours spent test riding, they worked tirelessly fine tuning their craft. After months of hard work, the first WOWGO board was completed on September 28th, 2017. The name itself came to be as Jason and Aiden wanted a way to remind e-skaters to look out for surprises as they ride, but also to continue on their journeys.
WOWGO boards are designed with some of the highest quality components on the market.
