Floating skate ramp in the middle of Lake Tahoe [Video]

Professional skateboarder Bob Burnquist has skated on almost every surface imaginable. In 2013, when Visit California asked him to dream big and try something completely new, he and his team decided to build a ramp…that floats. “Dreaming big man, that’s what I do every day, I just try to dream as big as I can and then go make it happen. You need to believe in something intense enough to go make it happen.” Burnquist said.

300 man hours, 1,250 screws and 7,300 lbs later, the athlete’s dream surfaced over the crystal blue waters of Lake Tahoe.
