    Do you think you could ski this old-school slalom skateboard?

    I think I could ski this. I don't want to, but I think I could handle her.

    I had a similar "skiboard". It's even possible I still have it, although if so it is buried deep. Only used it a few times but it was fun. You must weight your uphill leg to turn, which is a bit tricky to adjust to and potentially teaches bad habits.

    You sure want to have a clean course to ride that thing. Skinned knees and sprained wrists? No thanks. Looks like some Road Rider six wheels. Still kicking myself for giving away my fours many decades ago. Loved those wheels.

    I had one for awhile a couple years ago.. TechniSki brand. It's not like traditional skiing.. It's like riding a monoboard.. outside edge of inside foot pinky toe turning.. It was kinda fun but I ended up just giving it to someone else.. Got too many "good" skateboards LOL!
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    You gotta ride barefoot in a bikini, sunglasses, sweatband, and wig- like the photo

    You don't want to see me in a bikini. Might cause you to throw up a bit in your mouth. Looks like mid-seventies for that thing.
