At the start of the year 2018 I met a few people from mellow boards, an electric longboard start-up from Hamburg, Germany. I got to talk to one of the guys who was interested in my crazy looking, carbon, dropdown, long distance longboard. I told him about the trip from Stockholm to Hamburg and send him the video a couple of days after. A few messages later he asked if I wanted to do a trip like this again but instead of using a regular longboard, to go with an electric longboard. I was down for it straight away. Even though, I said not to go on another longboard trip after the last one, this one seemed kind of interesting and on top of that, I was hoping to get all of it paid. This was indeed the case when we talked about it in the mellow office a few days later. The days were set, the money for accommodation and food promised and all I had to do was to get the days off work.
