Australian man named Grant Hicks is challenging Tod Swank’s world’s largest skateboard record. Sure, there have been other contenders, and it’s not official yet, but Hick’s board is supposed to be 9 feet longer, and he’s documented the hell out of it with five of his own videos as well as an appearance on an Australian TV news program. If you’re only going to watch one of them, the TV one is your best bet. You’ll do a double-take when you hear how the anchorwoman’s thick Australian accent makes the word “deck” sound like a part of the male anatomy, leading to lots of juvenile fun with sentences like:
“The father of three hopes the giant deck will help raise money for his local (unintelligible) saving club.” and
“Seven month’s of hard work and Grant’s monster deck is around 9 feet longer than the current world record holders.”
Wow! Dirk Diggler is rolling over in his grave. Catch all six videos after the jump.
Here’s the news piece.
The rest of these are apparently made by Grant Hicks himself, or someone in his family.
