World’s biggest skateboard unveiled

It is an exact replica of a normal skateboard but is 12 times longer, wider and taller.
The world record-breaking skateboard is so big it has to be fitted with racing tyres from a car and transported on a flat bed truck.

It cost over £12,600 to make, weighs 260 stones and can be riden by up to ten people at a time.
Three people spent one month making the board from steel, wood and grip tape in California, United States.
Joe Ciaglia, a director of California Skateparks, designed the board, which measures 3ft 7in tall and 8ft wide.
He said: “The board is about fun – it was fun to build, it is fun to ride and it is fun to see everyone’s reaction to it.”
