Video | Brown Blurr On A OneWheel
There’s no wrong way to ride a OneWheel…Scratch that; there are plenty of wrong ways to ride a OneWheel, and the ground will quickly let you know if you’re technique is on par. The OneWheel--a single motorized wheel mounted and controlled by two foot paddles fore and aft of the wheel--is the latest craze in boardsports, and it’s found particular popularity among world-class SUP athletes. Guys like Mike Tavares, Luke Hopkins, and now, SUP celebrity Dave Boehne, aka the Brown Blurr, have adopted the OneWheel as their go-to off-water mode of transportation.

The rig can go off-road, in sand, uphill and cruises at up to 15 mph on flatland. Here, Boehne gives it a less conventional whirl in what must be one of OneWheel’s first trick videos. Leave it to the Blurr to get weird on this thing…
