The World’s Largest Skateboard Is the Size of a Bus

Skateboarding on streets may look an effortless and entertaining task, but when it comes to riding, rather controlling the world’s largest skateboard, the fun factor just takes form of a thrilling experience, taking the breath out of the rider.

Skateboarding on streets may look an effortless and entertaining task, but when it comes to riding, rather controlling the world’s largest skateboard, the fun factor just takes form of a thrilling experience, taking the breath out of the rider.

This is exactly what happened when the California Skateparks brought the world’s largest skateboard to the Camp Woodward in Pennsylvania, and took it out for a breathtaking ride with campers. Check out the video below , to see the enormous skateboard on a suicidal ride, after the jump.

The skateboard was built by Joe Ciaglia and the team at California Skateparks and stands 3 feet 7 1/2 inches tall, 8 feet 8 inches wide and 36 feet 7 inches long and has been certified by the Guinness Book Of World Records as the World's Largest Skateboard. Photo: WorldsLargestSkateboard.com

CaliforniaSkateParks.com says about the breathtaking ride in the Camp Woodward: “Not many people take on the Worlds Largest Skateboard by them self, you usually see at least 10 – 12 people riding this monster. This is because it takes a lot of weight to control it and make it turn; otherwise the board will choose the path.”

“But on a sunny day out at Woodward, Joe Ciaglia, the owner of this beauty, decided to ride the World’s Largest Skateboard all by himself. Joe picked the biggest hill and bombed it!”

“Joe should get the bail of the year for his amazing leap off the board just in time to not be launched off a 15 foot BMX jump and just far enough to not get completely ran over by the board. The video is amazing, and in our eyes Joe conquered the board and the hill on this run. Way to go Joe!” [California Skate Parks and World’s Largest Skateboard via Gizmodo and Huffington Post]
