Skateboard Sailing

Skateboard Sailing from Ryan Schenk on Vimeo.

Last night, we had some decent winds from Tropical Storm Hanna, so my friend Jonathan and I used an old sailboat mast, trash bag, and some scraps of wood to build this great gaff-rigged, sail-powered skateboard. We took it to the beach and ripped around the parking lot and down the street.

Looking back at the windspeed graphs on, it was blowing 40mph and gusting to 48 at the time this was filmed!

We only got one video because it was raining like crazy and we didn’t want to get the camera wet.
