This is the new urban extreme sport. Maybe extreme is a tad too enthusiastic but it's fun! It's the sport for those who doesn't own a board of any kind. So far just three kewl tricks have been created but there's plenty of sassy ones yet to be perfected.

Got no board? Then go noboarding! Show them skaters you don't need no boards to be bodacious (an old word for being stunningly rad)! Take pictures of it and name your tricks here!

i noticed you did this when there were no skaters around... is this because you were too embarrassed?

looks like you were having fun... but I wouldn't be caught dead running around a skate park without my BMX :lol:

I dont think it is refined to skateparks. You could probably No Board in an urban environment. But onlookers will probably think your insane. But who cares :P

Hahaha, not because we were embarrassed, just a mere result of the absence of skaters. We really wanted to do some action shooting but all the skateparks we went to were empty, which baffled us as the weather was very mild to say the least. So in a case of lacking subjects to shoot for action shots, I decided to make my own tricks and got my friend in on the idea, thus creating the doubtfully awesome urban sport 'noboarding'. I'm not sure that it would have ever been invented if we had encountered skaters in the skateparks, as we would have been shooting them for our action photography, therefor not having to think creatively in that regard. BMXing is cool by the way.

Absolutely, to both. You can even do noboarding in rural scenes or in the woods where you normally wouldn't think of skating. All you need is your legs and a bit of imagination. And who cares about what others think, anyways? As long as you're having fun, and not harming others, it's all good.
