This is the kind of house that I need to live in. It may seem like a normal, modern Japanese home, until you enter the recreation room. The rec room features a shallow, but very skatable bowl as well as a grand piano. I can’t think of anything better than skating the bowl in your own house while listening to some live, classical piano.
Let me just start off by saying that this dude is 12 years old! That’s crazy to me. Professional skateboarders have been trying for years to pull this off, and here comes this new young hot-shot, and boom! 1080 degrees.
To be honest, I think I would use this more for decoration than actual skating. It looks pretty dope, but something about an aluminum skateboard doesn’t sound right to me. If you’re one that just likes to cruise, and need something that’s easily transported, this is for you.
Although I find things like this pretty cool, it kind of seems to take all the fun out of skateboarding. This is the ZBoard electric skateboard that senses your weight, and moves forward or stops depending on which sensor your standing on. I like the idea, but I can’t say that I agree with this.
Thrasher and Wired.com recently got together to pick the most jaw-dropping photos of skateboarding stunts from 2011. I wish I could skateboard. I’m pretty good at doing ollies though.
Back in my pot-smokin’ days… One of the greatest pipes I ever owned was made from wood. His name: Mr. Scribbles. We called him Scribbs. Schwood sunglasses are also made from wood, and they’re also sick. Check out this video showcasing the making of a pair of shades from a skate deck. Dope.
