Do you want to fly? Don't have hundreds of thousands of dollars to spend on a plane? Then try the new sport on the block: ropeboarding.

Ropeboarding is a blossoming new international sport. Notable groups are Brock Ropeboarding, Fly High Ropeboarding, Adrenaline Ropeboarding, and many more. It originated in Kitchener, Ontario thanks to the Brock Ropeboarding group. Tricks that you can do are similar to skateboarding tricks. Many exist but new ones are being thought up constantly. A few weeks ago, one of my friends did a handstand on the ropeboard (of course, she's a gymnast). It provides for hours of fun with friends, a place for your creativity, and an ab workout that you will feel after your first day. Jump on for a thrill!

This is our ropeboarding video:

Dont exactly get fully what you are doing except its crazy. Jumping out of trees with bowlines. Whats next?
DUDE.....I've been doing this since I was 12! I thought I was the only one that did this!<br/><br/>The real adrenaline rush comes when you jump out of a 20' tree, try to do a tail grab with out a handle, and u start hurtling tword the ground.<br/><br/>&quot;i wonder how painful this could get if you didn't have a handle to hold on to&quot;<br/><br/><strong>VERY</strong><br/><br/>
dude that is awesome except if you fell that would hurt like a @#$!.
These are so much fun!
i wonder how painful this could get if you didn't have a handle to hold on to
This looks awesome! 'Cept I don't have any trees where I could do this. Still, thanks for introducing me to ropeboarding. Much appreciated.
I would suggest you tell us a little more about what ropeboarding is at the beginning.
