Make Money Promoting These Electric Longboards Through Amazon Affiliate/Influencer Programs

Love longboarding/skateboarding or board sports in general ?

Electric longboards/skateboards have become very popular in the last few years !

They've also become very affordable and reliable !

Not only are they a lot of fun to ride, but, for many people, electric longboards have also become a mode of transportation or just a way to get around town...

That's why electric longboards are great products to promote, and make some extra money !

And one of the best ways to do that is through Amazon affiliate/influencer program !

There are a ton of electric longboards to choose from on Amazon with prices ranging between $200- $500 ( see the prices and brands here - https://amzn.to/3ztl0Fk  )

Since Amazon pays only 3% affiliate commission it makes sense to promote higher priced longboards...

BUT !!

The best part of Amazon affiliate/influencer program is that when people end up on Amazon through YOUR affiliate link, and buy ANYTHING ( not just longboards you promote, but anything at all ! ), YOU still make money !

More than that !!

In my previous YouTube video I showed how YOU can get a FREE Amazon sales page, and make the SAME affiliate commission when YOU SIMPLY SHOP ON AMAZON !

Pro Tip:

If you're really serious about building a profitable online business based on your passion/interests/hobbies... the best way to do it is by creating a marketing niche, and choosing a brand to work with !

When you become a brand Ambassador/social media influencer you can make money since many brands have their own dedicated affiliate programs that pay more !

On top if that, as a brand Ambassador you will be featured on the company's social media channels, you can get all kinds of freebies, and deep discounts ! 

Our personal choice is Swagtron brand that offers a variety of electric toys ( longboards, bikes, scooters, and hoverboards ) for all ages !

Swagtron also offers their own affiliate program that pays 5% affiliate commission ( comparing to Amazon's 3% 😥 )


Despite of what you might have heard before about affiliate marketing, making money nowadays is NOT as easy as it used to be...

Spamming social media with affiliate links DOESN'T WORK any more...

If you want to build your own online business based on affiliate marketing model, you'll need to learn at least the basics of business, marketing, and branding !

If you're serious about building a profitable, reliable online business that you'll love, and will be proud of, I recommend joining our ExtraHyperActive Network where dedicated a big portion of our education to affiliate marketing, and specifically to Amazon affiliate/influencer programs !


As our own brand Ambassador/social media influencer YOU can make money by simply promoting our brand on social media !

Kitewing SK8 Ice & Snow Sail

If you've been following this blog, you know that being ExtraHyperActive, I love all types of boards sports : snowboarding, surfing, longboarding, windsurfing, skimboarding... You also know that a few years ago I started doing kiteboarding and kite landboarding. All these boardsports are extremely fun, and offer something for everyone. But I never stop looking for more ways to challenge myself, have fun, and create unforgettable experiences !

Recently I came came across a pretty awesome toy that can be used with any board, and more !

Kitewing SK8 Ice & Snow Sail

Kitewing (aka Skimbat) is a wing shaped kite. Many people call it “the wing” for short, just because of its shape.

Snow Paddling With Kahuna Snow Stick

1 comment:
If you've been following my blog, you know that since recently I've been pretty obsessed with land paddling.

I think it's an awesome, fun and very effective cardio and full body workout. And it wouldn't be possible without Kahuna Big Stick invented by Kahuna Creations, a Hawaiian company famous for its longboards, surfboards, and of course, the Land Paddle.

But recently they came up with a new "invention" - Kahuna Creations Snow Stick

From Kahuna Creations website :
The Kahuna Snow Grip is used for snowboarding, and can be popped on any land paddling Kahuna Stick you already have, making it a functional, interchangeable piece of year-roundequipment. 
When the mountain levels out, snowboarders used to have to hop, jump, or kick off a binding just to get through the flat sections. Kahuna Snow Stick riders easily paddle through the flats and carve it up all over the mountain.
This is amazing for advanced snowboarders that want deeper carves. A Snow Stick also brings a world of entirely new possibilities in terrain parks.
This is another completely original sport by Kahuna Creations, but honestly, we can’t figure out why it hasn’t been done before. We worked with incredible engineers to create the perfect Snow Grip even in the worst snow conditions. Any snowboarder, new or advanced can appreciate the need for a Kahuna Snow Stick. 

Even though we didn't have a chance to try out the Snow Grip, we had tons of fun using our Kahuna Haka with snowskates ! Read our full story here...

Love Boardsports ? You'll Love Onewheel Electric Board !

No comments:
Onewheel is a self-balancing electric board-sport, recreational personal transporter, often described as an electric skateboard/snowboard.

Future Motion OneWheel+ XR
As I wrote in my previous post, I've been thinking about upgrading my longboard to an electric one. Riding a longboard ( or paddling a longboard ) is a lot of fun, and a great workout ! But I think it's more exciting cruising around effortlessly while enjoying the views, and catching surprised looks of bypassers.

Electric Longboards For Fun And Commute

No comments:

Skateboarding has evolved ! Once only the toys of rowdy teenagers, skateboards have grown up alongside their riders. First in length, when longboarding became a popular outdoor activity for people of all ages. And now, in style, and performance when an electric motor was added !

With electric longboards there is no more pushing and kicking on that longboard to get you around. Electric longboard companies are now creating high-quality, technologically savvy boards that are both eco-friendly, easy to ride and feature new state-of-the-art decks, quiet electric motors with a hand remote-control !

The Beauty Of Longboarding


Just about 6 years ago longboarding was a relatively new sport/outdoor activity. Back then, there were less than a dozen companies that were selling longboards. Because longboarding basically originated from surfing, longboard skateboards first became popular among surfers.

A desire for a longer, smoother riding board led to the creation of the modern longboard. On days when the surf was low or it was too rough to go into the water, the surfers could continue to ride longboards.

The Innovative sk8pole Sends Land Paddling Into A New Generation !

No comments:
Why pay more to slip when you can pay less for grip !

The road grip multi-directional rubber pusher tip of the sk8pole kills the competition !

Let's face it. When it comes to land paddling it all comes down to the point of contact. Road grip and surface area convert into velocity forward. The patented sk8pole rubber pusher tip is in a class by itself. The pusher tip maintains 100% ground contact throughout the entire push motion creating maximum speed. Other tips wear out, slip, or just don't work ( can you say Kahuna Big Stick ?)

As for the shaft ? Why not go with 6061 Aluminum? Light, strong and affordable.

You can literally skate for miles without ever touching the ground with your foot. Also, the combination of kicking, pumping and sk8poling will give you a workout, and cover distances you never imagined.

Never Too Old For Longboarding

No comments:
In my post " Never Too Old For Adventure", I wrote about 67 year old Doris Matyasovich, a competitive MTB ( mountain biking ) racer, and Poul Rasmussen from Denmark, who learned to kiteboard early in his 80's, and many others who, despite their age, keep seeking adventure and new things to try.

Recently, I came across an article in San Francisco Chronicle about Lloyd Kahn, who started longboarding at the age 65 after he borrowed a board from his son's friend.

He finds longboarding, not only fun, but also challenging, both for his body and brain. As he says : "...it's good for the brain to be learning a new skill at my age."

He admits that there's also the element of danger or pain, but safety gear has come a long way and nowadays even older folks can pick up a hobby like longboarding with minimum risk.

Lloyd wants to encourage people who skated when they were young and gave up to get back into it, and I dare you to give it a try if you've never done it before !

Will Your Kids Like Land Paddling ?

No comments:

Land paddling is a fast growing board sport. And though, it hasn't gained as much popularity as SUP ( stand up paddleboarding ), there are more and more people of all ages that try this new "action sport".

Land paddling is equally fun for kids and adults. As a matter of fact, several schools in Hawaii do land paddling in gym classes.

100's of school (High School, Middle Schools and some Elementary schools) have introduced Kahuna Creations' land paddling to the students.  Students, parents, teachers and administrators love it for many reasons including:
  • "Exercising by disguise" Students love landpaddling and get a great workout.
  • Incentive. Teachers are able to use landpaddling as a reward for good behavior because the students absolutely love it.
  • Super easy for teachers to get started and begin landpaddling in school (see curriculum)
  • Safe.  Much safer than skateboarding because of the land paddle.  Landpaddling keeps the students from falling by centering themselves on the board and learning to paddle. If the student is about to fall, they are able to catch themselves with the paddle.
  • Indoor and Outdoor Use.  Great for use on an outdoor playground or safe for inside in the gymnasium or lunch room.  Floor friendly
  • Reach all students.  It is truly incredible that the boys and girls really love it.  Students that typically do not participate absolutely love land paddling.
  • Great cross training for paddleboarding and gives a great upper body workout.
Paddling with a stick provides more stability, and feel a lot more in control. It also helps students strengthen their core, build lean muscle, learn balance, and gain confidence.

Educators, schools and their families can get incredible discounts to help introduce the products into your school. For more details, check out Kahuna's article here...

Land Paddling - A Cheaper Alternative To Paddleboarding ( SUP )

No comments:

Stand up paddleboarding has exploded in its popularity withing the last 5 years. SUPs have been spotted around the globe, anywhere where there is easy access to safe waters, as well as in the surfing lineups of the world. A 2013 report called it the outdoor sporting activity with the most first-time participants of any in the United States that year.

Not many people had heard of stand-up paddleboarding until 10 years ago, when surfing star Laird Hamilton started catching gigantic waves standing on an oversized surfboard that he propelled with a long outrigger kayak paddle. But SUP, as it's known, didn't become today's hottest aquatic sport until average folks started doing it out of the surf zone.

SUP's sudden popularity is no surprise: it takes no great skills, its relatively low-key ( even your grandmother can do it ), safer than surfing, it offers a great workout, and it can be done anywhere there is a body of water.

But despite of its popularity, stand up paddleboading still remains a very niche sport for a very tight group of like-minded people.

The disadvantages of stand up paddleboarding are usually associated with, first of all, a relevantly high price of essential gear. High quality boards range from $800 to $2000. And paddle average between $100 ( for cheaper aluminum paddles ) to $300 for high tech carbon fiber ones.

Other major cons of paddleboarding include storing and transporting your board. With most boards averaging 10' feet and longer, it takes a lot of space to keep them in a garage or an apartment. Also, the weight of a board ( about 30-50 lbs ) makes it hard and time consuming to load/unload the board on your car's roof rack.

Stand up paddleboarding tends to be more popular in warmer climates like Hawaii, California, Florida, but in places like Pacific Northwest, where "summer time" is about 2.5 months long, paddleboarding is a seasonal sport.

Land paddling on the other hand can be done anywhere anytime in any weather !

Considered to be a popular spin-off of stand up paddleboarding, land paddle boarding, or land stand up paddle boarding is as easy as SUP, more affordable, and provides the same fun and exciting land paddling workout !

The paddling action almost exactly simulates Stand Up Paddle Boarding, only your able to do it on land. The combination of the longboard skateboards and land paddles give you an increased feeling of stability making it accessible to a wide range of people, young and old !

Land Paddling offers a great upper body workout and intense core training combined with the thrill of riding a longboard. On the flats and gentle uphills, the force necessary to propel the board comes from your shoulders, chest, back and abs. Over time, your upper body and your core plus your legs, feet and ankles gain strength and something called proprioception (your body awareness) improves.  These changes in your muscles and your mind, carry over to everyday balance and confidence of footing.  This is a huge benefit.

Also, one of the main advantages is that it is so accessible. You can keep a land paddle and board in your car boot so wherever you are you can have a paddle, whether it’s for a couple of minutes, a full on workout or just a relaxed cruise to chill out after a hard day. Pretty much everyone has access to an area of tarmac or concrete.

As for the coast, a popular cool longboard ( like Sector 9, Arbor, or Bombora ) will cost between $150-200, and an adjustable Kahuna Big Stick from the inventor of land paddling Kahuna Creations is $78.99

Over the last couple of years, the community of land paddlers has grown, and you'll see more people on local bike trails paddling their longboards, cruising the boardwalks, or bombing down local hills.

If you've ever daydreamed about stand up paddle surfing to work, the store, around campus, or on the boardwalk, pick up a board and a paddle, and enjoy a smooth ride while getting a great workout !

Today, January 5th, we were closer to the Sun than we will be any other day this year!
When 2012 began on January 1, our planet Earth was very close to its perihelion – its closest point to the sun for the year. In 2012, Earth will be closest to the sun on Thursday, January 5 at 1 hour Universal Time (UT). Translating UT to Central Time in the United Sates, perihelion happens today, on Wednesday, January 4, at 7:00 p.m.

Don't know about you, but I was pretty stoked ! After a few days of miserable rain, seeing the sun again was exciting...though, to be fair, in Seattle, seeing the sun any day of the year is pretty exciting :)

Made me happy:)...decided to take advantage of this sunny weather to go land paddling on Interurban:

Longboarding Puyallup's Riverwalk Trail

Puyallup's Riverwalk Trail is approximately 5 miles, relatively flat, not busy,and mainly used by pedestrians. During "fishing season" the trail, that runs along the Puyallup River, is swamped with fishermen. It has a few access points, with the main ones are at the Puyallup Skate park or behind Fred Meyers.

I'm glad I stopped by to check out this trail, as it turned out the Riverwalk Trail is part of the Foothills Trail.

I read about this trail a few years ago, and guess, now a big portion of the trail has been completed. As far as I know, right now the trail stretches from Puyallup to Buckley. Plans are also underway to connect the trail east to Enumclaw, and further , all the way to Mt Rainier.

The trail used to be a railroad line. Traveling along the Foothills Trail will be a great recreational opportunity and a chance to imagine what this area might have looked like when riding a train was the way most people got around.
