I find it funny that they say it's Switzerland but the cop giving them a ticket is Italian (Carbinari are scary cops too). As for the corner slides that's cool as s4it considering no one is wearing leathers and the speed they are getting...

Every time I see one of those vids I have a desire to set up a speedboard....got my eyes on the Fullbag Speedcarver but I just don't have any good hills to run a board like that on (well not exactly true but none within skating distance)

Cool videos. When they are doing those hard corners, are they sliding the wheels at all? I was just wondering if it would be possible to do something like that on the Carveboard with the rubber wheels :rolleyes:. Those things stick really well and are very hard to slide (at least for me!).

Terry - there is some "drifting" of the wheels, some guys more than others.

Please, please, please do not try anything like that on a carveboard! You will have speed wobbles like you never imagined - probably enough to launch you right off the road. And rubber tires do not slide or drift well...genarally they will stick, stick, stick and then RELEASE FULLY with no going back.

The two close calls with the cars are spooky!

That has been my experience so far! I only slid once, and it wasn't good :eek:.
