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

You could probably No Board in an urban environment. But onlookers will probably think your insane. But who cares
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.
