I got this idea after watching lots of longboarders and looking at some freebord videos. Keep in mind this is just an idea, no more. What if we took small longboard trucks, and put them on an enlongated longboard thing, that was thin like a ski?
You could carve around stuff
well, and I imagine it would open up an entire new door in tricks in
skateparks and stuff. I mean, that would look sick(might have problems
with the wheels catching on the boards when you cross, but screw it).
But it would still be fun to zoom down streets and stuff.
spent an hour drawing a prototype(after drawing them, the brakes seem
somewhat useless. Or maybe not. I guess if they were powder brakes that
were heavy rubber that would be cool):
do you guys think? Obviously a lot would change from now until final
manufacturing time, but if it was good and worked okay, would you buy a
pair? Is this even worth pursuing?
Anyway, just an idea I had.
The whole point was to remove the y axis from rollerblades, since if you
lean forward or backward you're screwed. And I was getting sick of no
snow here. Hahaha
