Ready to skateboard on a cushion of air?
The more your knees quiver, the more the 90-pound board you're perched on, floating above a pillow of air, seems about to shoot out from under your feet. The sound of the high-pitched engine bounces of the sheet of copper as you swivel and glide your way a few feet forward. ...
