Take a look at this video, it’s a board with wheels between the trucks that spin 360 degrees. This enables you to spin your board with easy, it is designed to act like a snowboard but for concrete hills. The feeling and riding of the freebord feels like snowboarding. You can carve like you do with snow and stop almost instantly from any speed. I wouldn’t recommend this to people who have never skated or snowboarded, and for skaters who thinks it will be the same, dont even try. Apparently it’s an enormous learning curve to got from the skateboard to the freebord (yes, that is how it’s spelt).

Anyway, I would like to say I am getting one of these for my birthday in a few months, I will post my progress on the blog and post videos for you to watch as I get better. Please take a moment to look at this video, these guys are professionals, very very cool!


Borat Review

December 2, 2006


When I heard about Borat I thought it was going to be a crappy low budget film but I started to hear my friends say some catchphrases from his shows, they were funny, I searched him on the Internet and looked at some of his videos. I noticed he is very good at keeping in character and keeping the accent and he does this extremely well in the film. image2144627.jpgBorat: Cultural Learning’s of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan is the name of the film, even in the title you know it’s Borat. The film shows Borat filming a documentary for his country, Kazakhstan, to try and get idea’s for benefiting it. He travels to America and meets many people on the way, most of which have no idea what he is on about and find him very rude and uneducated. Most of his comedy is “cringe then laugh” comedy, you have to look away from the screen sometimes but once you think about it, it’s actually side splittingly funny! boratcannes1.jpgHis anti-semitism and sexist comments and beliefs add to the funny side of only knowing basic English sayings, most of the stuff which comes from his mouth is insulting in some way. I recommend if you under 15 in the UK don’t try to get in, it is too rude, no I’m joking, I think many people will see it and be disgusted but even more will die laughing! Enjoy, I really recommend Borat because of it’s educational properties, only joking!
