Bob Burnquist Plans To Skateboard Off Cliff
(Posted 10/26/2005)

By Josh Rabinowitz for

Los Angeles, California-- Professional Skateboard Star Bob Burnquist has announced his intention to skate off a cliff.

The plans are still being set, but reports indicate that Bob will ride down a massive launch ramp, fly off the ramp and onto a rail, then drop off the rail over the edge of a cliff. Then, he'll open his parachute and ride to safety.

"It's almost subliminally why I started skydiving," Bob was quoted as saying in Skateboarder magazine, "so I could skate off a cliff and survive."

Burnquist lives in Vista, California, originally hails from from Brazil, and recently helped carry the Olympic torch on his skateboard, of course through that South American country, which regards him as a celebrity.

"I haven't done a Letterman or Leno here in the U.S.," said Burnquist, "But I've done all the Brazilian versions."

Some skateboarders have criticized Burnquist for carrying the olympic torch because many skaters fear that involvement of what they see as a corruption-rife International Olympic Committee (IOC) will only be bad for skateboarding.

"It's not like I was there trying to get skateboarding into the Olympics," said Burnquist in response, "I was there celebrating the Olympics. It's such a huge human endeavor that's been going on for ages. The reason you carry the torch around the world is to boost the feeling of global community before the Games start. Being part of that community was pretty intense. It was an honor to carry it, skateboarding or not."
