Circle Boarding Sounds Like Torture Technique, Turns Out Not To Be

15

Street-skateboarding pioneer and artist, Mark Gonzales, constructed a ridiculous “Circle Board” out of nine skateboards for his exhibit, Round n’ Round, at the Franklin Parrasch Gallery in NYC (ends Nov. 28th).

This video (above) is an attempt by fellow skater, Anthony Pappalardo, to ride around Manhattan on Gonzales’ contraption, which seems to epitomize every mother’s worst nightmare.

In the end, Pappalardo spends more time wobbling off the circle board than actually riding the thing. But Gonzales looks to be the master of his creation as he expertly skates/rolls over a sidewalk while apparently smoking a cigarette.

Well played, sir.

The video was filmed by William Strobek.

    rip off from jackass. Not original. What a poser

  • jailbreakcollective

    what's up with this ripping off jackass nonsense? first of all, it's jackass, and i doubt any of their stunts are patented.

    gonzales made this thing 10 years ago. ever think, due to the fact that he's a prominent member of the skateboarding world, that maybe the jackass borrowed this idea from him?

    Did he really make this thing 10 years ago?

    Either way its an art exhibition – art is mimicry in some form, and in this case the wheel was invented by someone unknow
