Cool! But with all of them on it. How does it compare to a multicolor rainbow painted third world bus with the chicken coops on the top of the luggage rack?
Now that's a surfbus!!!
That's not a surf board...that's a boat with no sides.
I bet there are a few Cubans who would like that sorta luxury transport! ;-)
Where is the motor and the steering?
Look at this .....
Nice...and I thought I rode a longboard...
Yeah!! Bet they didn't jump a shark!! :-)
LOL! Gotcha in the keywords.
That's no surfboard - that's an Australian teetertotter.
I was thinking where's seatbelts and the outboard? It would be one heck of a ride.
Where I come from we'd call that a boat.
