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.
