What happens when you combine Nordic skiing, stand-up paddle and switch-kick longboarding? You end up with a new method of transportation called SpikeBoarding, which requires a SkateBoard "Spike" and a specialized longboard.

 

For the skateboard portion of SpikeBoarding, a rider can use their own longboard specially designed for effective switch kicking, or the actual SpikeBoard made for the sport. The official SpikeBoard has a fender designed to keep the user from tapping the wheels while switching stances. It is also a drop deck board with 3 inches of drop, along with 85-mm (3.3-in) wheels and 180-mm (7-in) trucks.

 

The SkateBoard Spike is much like a Nordic ski pole, but it's tweaked to allow the user to spike with one hand while switch kicking with the other. The reason the creators have gone this way is to allow users to work out all muscle groups while riding the board. The pole is made with carbon fiber with the goal of keeping it as light as possible. In the end, it comes in at 19 ounces (539 grams), which should be easy enough to carry around while skating hard.
