So you want to get yourself one of those pricey hoverboards that everyone is talking about. That’s great and all, but make no mistake: These Segway-like scooters aren’t easy to maneuver and they might take a while until you master. In other words, don’t be surprised if you fall off the hoverboard and injure yourself.
A video compilation of hoverboard fails is already going viral on YouTube, showing various hoverboard accidents including a few pretty awful ones.
Balancing the hoverboard isn’t easy for everyone, and while some people may be able to pull off some impressive stunts using a hoverboard, others will have a tough time using it at first.
The video below shows how easily it is to lose control and experience some nasty falls. Don’t be fooled by the laughter in some of the funnier falls. Just count how many times people hit their heads once they touch the ground, or land in some awkward positions.
Since we’re approaching Black Friday, you may be looking to score a hoverboard for a discounted price. Unfortunately, so far only Target has listed one, as many other retailers decided not to stock hoverboards this season. What everyone will have in stock, though, are helmets and protective gear.
