fantastic video. The city riding with traffic looks pretty hair-raising.

I wondered how you got your rig up curbs. Do you think a skateboard will be made with a luggage rack on the back/front?

Keith, I doubt a skateboard with racks will be the goods. Perhaps the weight of the load on the board will affect handling. The board would have to be quite long to accommodate the luggage and the rider, and a too-long board would be a little cumbersome, me thinks. Like when checking into hotels, pulling it across gravel, putting it in shopping trolleys…

Hi Rob,

Enjoyed the awesome new video as always. Though I have to say that your in-traffic skating looks mighty hazardous. It is a good thing you are attracting so much attention. I was also surprised to see how easily you seem to overtake people on bikes too!
