Introduction: Longboard Brake System Mk 1

The brake system uses syringes as hydraulic brakes and blue led bars as the nights powered by a 9v battery

Step 1: Design

I thought about this while long boarding and noticed after a certain speed it became difficult to stop with my shoes or simply jumping off the board. I decided to come up with a design that could fit my board and could easily be removed if needed and this is what I have.

I was thinking disconnecting an ESC and "shorting" the "outputs" of the brushless motor to slow down from eddy currents. Put a brushless in a drill, API. It up and short circuit it, it'll stop pretty quick. You could also use a resistor for less of a kick with this mechanism, because that would throw you off the board at a speed where you need brakes

Can we get more details? I really like your idea, and I have also had the same issue, being tired of bailing and running after my board when I gain more speed than I intended.

The idea of a longboard breaking system is great! Thanks for sharing and welcome to the community!
