you could totally do it! don't let these nay sayers bring you down man. just make sure you keep the trucks on it, they work as hydrofoils.

do they??

Tanner...No the trucks will no act as "hydrofoils"....The issue with trying to use an old skate deck is that fact that the size is relativly small and will have a hard time displacing enough water to keep your weight on top of the water..... <BR>For fawkin off it may be worth a try but for acctually getting serious it is not worth the effort.
