HEARD ABOUT HOVERBOARDS?

TEMECULA CALENDAR BRINGS YOU THE REAL SKINNY

Temecula, CA - Often said, 'this is the future' a trending video is making the rounds based off a movie made 29 years ago. Back to the Future reignited skateboarding by causing riders to replace metal skate wheels with rubberized hard plastic. After that the new fad became a national sport and transportation for people too young/improvised for a car.

A few years later Back to the Future II screened and took skateboarding to a new level, literally. This sequel to BTTF introduced fans to a hoverboard, an anti-grav skateboard. The movie gag was a big hit as I remember cheering with the audience as Marty McFly used it the first time on screen.

Well, Sports Fans, the future is here, or is it? After the break we look at the video that caused a sensation, what Tony Hawk had to say after the vid went viral, and sandwiched between is a Dweeb Cast report examining the still trending phenomena.
