Unlike most other boards under $2000, Boundmotor’s boards use a VESC-based ESC so you have some ability to fine tune your board’s performance. They also have parts that may be worth checking out for DIY builders.
⭐ 5% off order total. Discount code: DKWAN https://boundmotor.com (Free stickers only for orders over $200.)
Exway’s X1 and X1 Pro are niche eboards for those who love a downhill style deck and sleek design. The new Exway Flex raises the bar incredibly high for competing boards in its price range, and the upcoming Exway Wave is likely to do the same for short boards.
At this time, you can enter two discount codes.
⭐ $40 off Exway Wave. Discount code 1: DKWAN Discount code 2: Alex20 (case sensitive) https://www.exwayboard.com

Cloudwheels have been popular lately. They’re sort of a hybrid of all-terrain and street wheels. The original ones were 120mm, and now they also have them in 105mm. I quite like the 105mm version.
$10 off Cloudwheels. Discount code: DKWAN https://shop.iwonderpower.com
Lazyrolling makes skate protective gear in the form of jackets, hoodies, and pants that look like street wear. They also make putting on protective gear way more convenient.

Meepo is the O.G. budget electric skateboard brand whose successful business model influenced (or was copied by) many other budget brands today.
⭐ Use this link for discount at checkout. https://dkwan.com/go/meepo/ See instruction below for stickers.
Fabian Doerig’s Onsra Black Carve comes in a direct drive version and a belt drive version, both top notch. Choose the smaller wheels for more torque and range, or the larger wheels for bad roads and a more comfortable ride.
⭐ 5% off any electric skateboard. Discount code: DKWAN https://esk8us.com (USA) https://rideonsra.com (Europe)
⭐ $50 off any electric skateboard. Discount code: DKWAN https://onsracalifornia.com (USA)
When it comes to producing boards using existing parts, Ownboard is a trendsetter. Ownboard popularized the use of Hobbywing’s ESC in budget boards years ago and recently made Evolve-like boards that are arguably better than Evolve’s own.
⭐ $5 off any electric skateboard. Discount code: DKWAN https://www.ownboard.net
⭐ $10 off the Ownboard Bamboo or Carbon. Discount code: DKWANAT https://www.ownboard.net
ShredLights’ products let you easily mount headlights and taillights on your electric skateboard. They have mounts for just about every type of board.
⭐ Use below link for 10% off at checkout. https://dkwan.com/go/shredlights/ (Free stickers only for orders over $100.)
Vestar’s M.O. seems to be to make boards that others have already done, but use some different (cheaper?) parts and squeeze in a bigger battery.
⭐ 10% off your total order. Discount code: DKWAN10 https://vestarboard.com (Free stickers only for orders over $100.)
⭐ 20% off the Vestar Night Fury. Discount code: DKWAN https://vestarboard.com
WowGo was perhaps the first to successfully copy Meepo’s budget board business model and now produces boards that rival Boosted Boards at less than half the price. Both the 3 and 3X are a giant leap forward compared to WowGo’s previous generation boards.

Adobe Creative Cloud
If I know of a discount I’ll post it here.
No Adobe discounts at the moment. https://www.adobe.com
iMazing is an essential tool for iPhone users. I use it on both Windows and Mac. On Windows it is the best way to transfer files between the iPhone and a PC. On Mac I use it for local backups. I have used iMazing to recover my iPhone when a software update froze in the middle. Backups are important!

Some of my videos are now edited by others so I need a service that lets me send out massive amounts of footage multiple times per week with minimal effort. I tested out lots of different services (Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, OneDrive, WeTransfer, CowTransfer, Baidu Cloud, Weiyun) and pCloud was by far the best fit for me. Try them out – maybe they’re right for you too.

There are several competing services for finding royalty-free music for your videos and Soundstripe is the best I’ve found so far. Epidemic‘s licensing terms suck, and Artlist‘s search and cataloging need a lot of work. Soundstripe has good terms and a much better search.
Discount code: DKWAN 20% off membership fee. https://www.soundstripe.com
TubeBuddy has lots of useful tools for YouTube creators, but their subscriptions aren’t cheap. Fortunately you don’t need to commit to them long term. I use the free plan most of the time, and when I need a specific feature I purchase the appropriate plan for that month only.
For instance, I needed the bulk find and replace feature to update links in the descriptions of more than 100 of my videos. I purchased their “Star” subscription for that month, did what I needed to do, and then canceled it.

I have more or less always been self-employed since I don’t fit into corporate environments. That has always made my taxes a bit complicated and confusing. I now use QuickBooks Self-Employed to keep track of both my personal and business finances and managing money has become way easier.
50% off for 6 months through my link. https://dkwan.com/go/quickbooksself/
This is my online store where I sell my merch and esk8-inspired apparel. Some stickers also.
