The World’s Largest Skateboard in Los Angeles!
What would the World’s Largest Halloween Half Marathon be without the World’s Largest Skateboard?! This skateboard will be one of the band stages on course! Look for this record holding stage at Pico and Flower while you are rockin’ the streets of LA!
Here’s the scoop on this awesome board:
The creation of The World’s Largest Skateboard is the brain child of Joe Ciaglia (California Skateparks) and professional skateboarder/entrepreneur Rob Dyrdek. California Skateparks began a working relationship with Rob Dyrdek 3 years ago with the design and construction of his Fantasy Factory and Dyrdek Enterprises’ corporate offices. As Rob and Joe’s creativity and energy began to produce some amazing things, they came up with the idea of creating the World’s Largest Skateboard. There was one qualification. If it was to be designed and built by Joe, it would be done to the exact specs and quality of a real skateboard. The completed board far exceeded anybody’s expectations and is 100% authentic to specifications, designed and hand built in-house by CA skateparks craftsman. The board which has a value equivalent to an American sports car, features a 7 ply pressed wood deck (5 1/2 inches thick with interior steel frame support), real grip tape, custom graphics, custom fabricated steel trucks with adjustable rubber bushings, rubber vehicle tires (2 foot 6 inch diameter), and bearings. The board is built on a 12.5:1 ratio to a standard size skateboard and measures 36 feet 7 inches long and 8 foot 8 inches wide, stands 3 feet 7 inches tall, and weighs in at over 3,600 pounds! The board was certified by Guinness World Records in 2010 and is the official world record holder.
