new sport armpit barreling

Remember TARP Surfing?  Now we have armpit barreling!  All you need for an awesome time is you, a good buddy and a handboard! Ohh, and a skateboard of your choosing. In no time at all, you'll be getting sweaty executing armpit barrels with flawless precision. What's more, you can even do an epic claim as you are spat out on the "shoulder". You may ask what brilliance brought this little gem of a sport to life!  A healthy dose of beer and a penchant for daring activities, that's what. The dangers are rife and we have to warn you to never try this at home! First off, getting to close to the pit results in a furry wet wipe out and an incredibly horrifying hold down and I don't want mention the horrors of hitting a peddle with no shoes on!  All in all if you get it right, the joys overshadow the obvious risks. So go ahead and try this at home (Although you didn’t here that from me). We are still smiling from the fun! Let's just say small things amuse small minds.
