Geek.com reports Lexus built their own skate park, with a special metal track embedded in the ground throughout the area. That track works as one giant magnet, which when met with the 32 super conductors built into the Slide, repels the board a few inches off the ground. In order for the super conductors in the Slide to work, they have to be cooled to -321 Fahrenheit. You have to “refuel” the board with 50z of liquid nitrogen every ten minutes to keep those crazy magnets cold. Read it all on GEEEK

For July 2015 we present Santiago Montoya Tabares, a 14 year old street skateboarder living in Columbia, a resident of Florida.
Santiago has been skating for many years and he is absolutely passionate about street skating.
It’s enough the park is home to local legend Jamie Foy.
It’s enough the park is revamped with pro-level ramps and rails, but The Board’r to come in and hold an all out who’s who of south Florida skateboarding is ample icing on the cake! Oh, and Chad of Oh Cake was in the house too.
No matter the division, locals from Miami, Broward and Palm Beach took top slots in just about every division. In a place dominated by northern competitions by the like of Tampa and Jax, it’s relieving to see our local talents shine on their home turf(s).
Board’r put the event together in tandem with Grind For Life, the organization whose mission it to wipe out cancer, better known as “Skate & Destroy Cancer”. Ramp 48 staff did a stellar job accommodating skater needs in the hardware, service, food and service departments while Rob’s team went to work orchestrating another world class contest in our backyard. I’m pumped to have been in attendance.
