The board is made up of 2 separate motors that respond to the pressure on the front and back of each pedal. The two pieces are joined in the middle in order to allow you to turn and balance. If you want to move forward, you would apply pressure to the front of your feet (Like tippy toeing). If you wish to go backwards, you would apply pressure to the heel of you feet. In order to turn left, you would apply pressure to the front of your right foot OR apply pressure to the back of your left foot. In order to turn right, you would apply pressure to the front of your left foot OR apply pressure to the back of your right foot. While, this sounds complicated, it is simple once you are on the device.
While wearing a Helmet, place the device in front of your body on a soft surface; we recommend grass at first and then carpet next. Carefully place one foot on the Hov Board. Try to move one side of the board forward and backwards by applying pressure to the front and back at your foot.
Once you are able to put one foot on the Hov Board while keep the Hov Board in place, place your other foot on the Hov Board. We recommend the help of a spotter so you can hold onto someone or something during this process.
Once you are on the board, DO NOT BE AFRAID. If you get nervous, the hov board will rock back and forth causing discomfort. We recommend to try to learn to stay still. Being on a soft surface helps accomplish this.
Once you are steady, try to go forward by placing pressure on your toes, as if you are tippy toeing. Go slow until you are confident.
Once you can safely move forward, we recommend you try to go backwards.
Practice turning left and right.
Once you are able to turn left and right, you can try riding in a large circle to practice.
