On September 16th, I will begin a historic journey across America as I attempt to become the first person to ride an electric powered skateboard across America. The journey which is called Evolve Across America - the First Electric Skateboard Crossing of America - In Support of Board Rescue is sponsored by Evolve Skateboards, the leading manufacturer of electric skateboards.
The ride across America will serve as a means to draw attention to, and raise funds for Board Rescue, a 501(c)(3) public benefit non-profit corporation dedicated to providing skateboards and safety equipment to organizations in the United States that work with underprivileged, at-risk and special needs children.
I have pushed a conventional skateboard across America on four different occasions; 1976, 1984, 2003 and 2013. This journey will also mark the 40th anniversary of my first skateboard ride across America. I will begin this journey in Newport, Oregon and finish in Williamsburg, Virginia. Former Freestyle Skateboarding World Champion Ed Nadalin will serve as the support vehicle driver. Ed who is also a professional filmmaker, will document the entire journey. The footage will be used to produce a documentary film.
So why am I posting on the Tesla Model S Forum? I believe that a Tesla Model S would be the perfect support vehicle for the Evolve Across America ride…"electric skateboard - electric support vehicle"! We are hoping that a member of this forum might be interested in loaning us a Model S as our support vehicle. We would need the vehicle for approximately 40 days. We would of course provide insurance.
Rudi Tuisk CEO, Founder and Technical Director of EV Race Systems will provide set-up support of the vehicle and assist with, and advice on technical support. If Rudi’s name sounds familiar, you may have read about his involvement with the Tesla Sweep of the 2010 Monte Carlo Alternative Energy Rally (http://ir.tesla.com/releasedetail.cfm?ReleaseID=477902) and setting the 2016 Pikes Peak Electric Vehicle Record (https://evracesystems.newswire.com/news/go-puck-ev-race-systems-combine-...).
If you or someone you know would be interested in providing a support vehicle, my contact information is below. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
