The mid-90s brought a popularity level of skateboarding into our culture, that no other extreme sport ever could. A mixture of more X-Games coverage and the fun-level of the Tony Hawk Skateboarding games, skaters are now a still a standard clique of high schools and burnouts. The Flowboard is the next-gen update of the Skateboard.
With 7 wheels on each truck, balancing becomes more difficult and new grinding methods are created. Which equals, bingo, more crap for skaters to master. They also look pretty bad ass too. Do you think the Flowboard will ever see the popularity of Skateboards? We’ll have to see if some Flowboarders arise from the ashes of culture. — Andrew Dobrow
