"When I ride my skatecoaster, I brake by rubbing my shoe against the ground."
―Stuart Zissu[src]

A skatecoaster a short, narrow board with two small wheels fixed to the bottom of either end, on which an individual could stand to move along a surface or to perform tricks, propelling themselves by occasionally pushing one foot against the ground. Braking was achieved by using frictional forces. Skatecoasters were popular among younglings, and the young Human Stuart Zissu owned one.

Behind the scenesEdit

Skatecoasters first appeared in the Star Wars Science Adventures series of educational novels for young adults. They were used as a stand-in for the real-life skateboards.
