Water World: Floating Skateboard Ramp

Househappy —  March 31, 2014 — Leave a comment

Non-profit organization Visit California invited a group of the state’s residents to create something “big.” Brazilian-born skateboarder Bob Burnquist decided to try the impossible: skate on water.

Miami art director Jerry Blohm designed the wooden structure, which features a half pipe, quarter pipe, and 45-degree ramp. They towed it out to Lake Tahoe for the inaugural ride.

“Dreaming big man, that’s what I do every day, I just try to dream as big as I can and then go make it happen,” says Bob in a video about the project. (You can also watch footage of him skating the ramp here.)

The lesson? Always dream bigger.
