Sled skateboard

There’s nothing people wouldn’t do in the name of fun, but this one is far from fun, done specifically in the name of Christmas. Why on Earth would someone otherwise turn a toboggan-style sled into a freakin’ skateboard. You got to be nuts to do that, or rise up one day with Santa knocking you in the dream to come up with such a wired thing.
