The guys at Braille Skateboards are well known for their skating antics. On their popular YouTube channel, they are known for attempting to skate on anything their viewers send in. Attempting to push them to their limit, one fan decided to send in a surfboard.
Watch the action here:
Previous entries have included a skateboard made of paper, an electronic drum symbol, and even a Lego skateboard. While these all posed their challenges, the surfboard surely pips them to the post given its shear length.
After an initial struggle to remove the surfboard’s fins, the pair begin drilling in a set of skateboard wheels. Some minor difficulties follow, which includes the wheel brackets falling off, but not long after the surfboard is ready to roll and the guys at Braille start scooting it around the skate park.
What’s incredible is that the guys actually manage to kick flip the 6ft board! While the board is relatively light, being made from glass fiber, it’s still pretty weighty compared to a standard skateboard, and its length is around three times longer.
Pretty cool stuff. Hats off to the Braille Skateboarding team!
