416. IdeaSpark*: Suspended Half-Piping July 31, 2007Posted by Matt Fleming, PsyD in Experience, IdeaSpark*, Product, Video.
I would love to skate on a half-pipe, but I am a complete novice and a coward. That is why I want someone to construct a semi-circular half-pipe with a wire swing suspended above.
You would grip the attached handlebar, strap a skateboard to your feet, then thrash back and forth like a pendulum without worrying about wiping out. With enough practice, you won’t even need the wire.
It would be similar to the “Ridewire” video clip below, but actually fun. Clip via Trendhunter.
