Have you ever seen a skateboard with 14 wheels? I recently got the chance to ride the Flowboard, which has seven rollerblade wheels up front and seven in the back. My editor at Pulse wanted someone to test this skateboard. I volunteered. My dad and I went to Hill Street Skate Park in Frederick, Md., and the New Hope Alliance Sk8 Church in Williamsport to try it out. After riding it myself, in a small pool, I felt that it was too wobbly and dangerous to ride the way I would ride a normal skateboard, with two wheels in front and two in back.
