The Mid-Lake Skate Ramp.

Lake-Tahoe-Floating-Skate-Ramp-1

Professional skateboarder Bob Burnquist has taken his skateboard on water to skate on the Floating Skate Ramp in Lake Tahoe, California. This is a unique piece of engineering made by skilful Jerry Blohm and Jeff King especially for Bob Burnquist. The 7,300 lbs skate ramp was built at 45-degree in 300 man hours featuring 1250 screws. The ramp is 36 feet long and 8 feet tall accompanied by 5 feet tall secondary ramp. Each wood panel was tainted with different color and polished to create horizontal stripes. No need to worry about the landing if you mess up a trick and go over the ramp. This floating ramp was actually built for Dream Big California Tourism Campaign.  Check it out.
