Balloon Bowl

Balloon Bowl

Yeah, this is old, but still good. I can’t believe this went down at D.O.S. and we didn’t know about it. Well actually, I can. From the D.O.S. website:

This went down a long time ago, but who knows how many people actually saw it. Dave England and some buddies made this for a website and it got passed around the interweb for a minute. Beach was the perfect dude to try and ride something like this. The first time they did it, they blew all the balloons up with their mouths. 10 hours and they ended up with a quarter of the balloons shown. Round 2 they got an air compressor.

The best thing (aside from a bowl full of balloons) is all the popping noises. I imagine the longer they rode the sketchier it got. Truly unique and fun stuff. Check out the vid after the jump.

YOuTube user DaveTheKnave:

I had this idea for a while to fill a skate bowl with balloons and try to ride through them. It seemed like the chances of it working were slim. I figured they might make your wheels stop. We finally tried it anyways and as you can see from this video we made of Matt Beach, it worked just fine. The popping sounds are not added in. That is the real audio of balloons popping. it took over 3 hours to blow up nearly 8000 balloons using 2 air compressors to get it full enough. location- department of skateboarding, portland, OR. Music by “The Planet The”

Same one, different user.

    one of the coolest and most unique things I’ve seen done.
    Didn’t know Beach was the (initial) skater.

  3. This rules. Maybe a condom commercial next time

  4. Hey that would break my fall, like an airbag or something, can you fill Pier Park next time I’m down there! Cool!

  5. […] this over at Skate and Annoy, this would be so much fun it’s ridiculous. Thanks […]
