The cure for mongo


At first, maybe only marginally skateboard related, but upon closer inspection, this would be like the orthopedic shoes and braces that Forest Gump wore, effectively making it impossible to push mongo. Mongo-bashing aside, here’s the scoop. In 2008 Tomáš Moravec modified a pallet in Bratislava, Slovakia to run on the tram tracks. Unfortunately there’s no close up of his wheel setup. (UPDATE: Close up added) We’ve got plenty of light rail and wood pallets in Portland, I’m just saying…

    mongo IS the right way to longboard (dress like shit, skate like shit and push like shit)

    Train skitching? Oh yeah the train is a serious drawback to this idea.

  7. Here’s another shot from the bottom of the pallet.
