Man races through central London on electric skateboard beating public transport

This incredible footage from last month (October 2) shows the efficiency of using an electric skateboard in the hustle and bustle of the capital.

Tim Wood from Sutton, South London was sick of the commute that he had to endure with public transport in the city so he came up with the idea of testing it against his electric skateboard.

With different obstacles to tackle, the route seemed perilous at times but he makes it through, and it results in Wood beating many public transport options for time.

Wood said: "I started taking an electric board after so many trains got cancelled and the Northern Line isn’t exactly a pleasure to travel on."
