Here is a shot of the truck hanger, baseplate and wheels

{Well} now pro skateboarder Rob Dyrdek is going {after} the {globe} record and he is going to make it the {largest} most realistic skateboard in comparison to the other Guinness {Globe} Record Holders. Rob’s board will be 38′-6″ {long} and 5′-6″ tall and we will have to get the official {results} from Guiness when they go measure the skateboard. This board is an {precise} replica of a Rob Dyrdek Skateboard {complete} with Silver Trucks, Alien Workshop / CA Skateparks graphics, grip tape and all the nuts and bolts. {As soon as} the skateboard was completed he loaded it up and took it down to the Venice beach board walk for a cruise and that is pictured {below}.

    So here is a quick story –about 4 years ago I designed a board based on a few “antique boards and I with the help of Benson Steel in saugerties and my sons Jules and Jasper and lots of others from the Saugerties junior skatepark commitee built aboard which is 33 feet long and 8 ‘ 1″ wide while in the process of getting our Guiness status Rob came up with his board . Our board was built to raise money for our community’s skatepark which is being built (all in concrete) as of this entry (saugerties skatepark .com) our board is linked with my name under largest skateboard lives . I would love to propose to Rob that we hit some undulating slopes —maybe in the desert where we can see the old with the new. As our trucks actually have air shocks we can definetly challenge Rob to an interesting ride.Hail the invention of the wheel. John Kahn

    Dude I am a Bay De Noc alumni ~ which is weird cause I didnt know about this skateboard until I saw Rob Dyrdek making fun of “Boc Day Noc” (as he called it) on his show! I about crapped! Dyrdek’s shows are my favorite (but I miss Big =[ bring him back!!!)
