"Not so!," say young skaters Ethan Hall and Darious Abdollahi. What do physics and art galleries have in common with Skateboarding, the third largest past-time in the U.S.?

Sit back on your favorite bench and listen to these young men make a solid case for the zen-like state achieved on simple piece of wood, as well as the inherent difficulties in mastering this oft misunderstood sport. Whether you're a fan or not, one thing's for sure: after watching this talk you will never look at skateboarding (or skateboarders) the same way again.
