It used to be a rite of passage for serious teenage skaters in my small town to skate a local mountain road on full moon nights. It’s a 1-1/2-mile pretty steep (in some sections) curving downhill road that is closed off to cars at night. It’s way too fast for me on a normal board, but I can negotiate much of it on a Carveboard, which has pneumatic wheels, and can carve very steep turns.
I got up at 5AM, drove to the mountain, parked and towed my Carveboard up on a rope (like dog on leash). Unfortunately, I had let too much air out of the tires, and couldn’t get a rhythm going, except for a stretch at the end.
BUT — I got to see the full moon going down over the ocean in platinum brilliance, while the sunrise lit up the east in an orange glow — ain’t complainin. Got back to town and skated downtown, which has just been paved. No people, no cars. Bombed a hill 3 times, with no worries about running into humans or vehicles. FUN!
