Around 60 years ago, the first surfers put metal and clay under a wooden board to be able to keep surfing on land, even without waves. In 2016, Mellow was brought to life – the first mountable electric drive for any skateboard. Thereby, it smoothly catapults the asphalt surfing of yore into the world of e-mobility. The search for the endless ride was also the initial spark of the Mellow idea for founders Johannes and Kilian. However, with their quality product ‘made in Germany’, the Hamburg-based start-up is admittedly the stubborn village holding out against the empire of electric boards mostly manufactured in Asia.
