hover board experience?

Has anyone taken a hoverboard out who can report on how it worked? I just saw that they make hoverchairs to use with the boards. That looks like an interesting combo.

Do you mean something like using a hoverboard in the sand on the playa. I know bike have a hard time riding in the soft areas. I would imagine that something with small wheels would be a disaster.

Sham, I'm kind of wondering about the batteries, electronics, etc. Where my head is going with this is 20" fat tires on a hoverboard. I've ordered one of the "hovertrailers" and a set of 20x4.25 wheels/tires to put on that trailer to pull behind my fat tire bike. I'll probably have to change out the axle. But then that caused me to wonder about the possibility of converting a hoverboard. I plead playa brain. I can't help it. Wondering and daydreaming.

I agree about the small tires plowing into the playa. The difference in my old bike and the fat tire I brought last year was amazing. I'm definitely sold on the fat tires.
