The Hover Board is a fantastic product. It is meant for fun almost anywhere. I’ve personally ridden mine inside the house, outside in Florida, on tile, and on regular old concrete. I do believe the 8” wheels really make a big difference when it comes to how smooth of a journey you obtain with the hoverboard. I’ve not had any problems with the wheels getting stuck somewhere or caught on a foreign object. Having said that, you must always be familiar with your surroundings.
