Exclamation Hoverboard

I need help with deciding a hoverboard question for the science fair. The one I have currently is What flooring causes the least amount of friction on a Hoverboard. I just don't know how to test that.

Default

use waxed floors. EG. Gym Floors. You want the least amount of friction so get marble like floors or really polished wood to reduce the amount of friction. To test the smoothness of the floor just push a soft material with a certain amount of power, but the power must be equal all the time otherwise it ruins the experiment.
Good Luck and all the best!
