  1. I imagine there would be plenty of chatter, mainly along the lines of: “WTF is that crap?!” But that’s supposing he could ever sell one!

    And the grand canyon in the middle of your board would increase drag. But at least it’s a 4cm thick board!? That’s gotta be good for… nothing.

    I hope the price includes the Batman suit you need to get away with this.
