Mad invention is like surfing on land

TWEED'S self-proclaimed "mad inventor" could change the face of extreme sports with his latest brainchild.

Kingshore's managing director Vanya Seresheff has created a two-wheeled street surfing board, akin to a handleless scooter, which he has dubbed the Onshore Cruiser.

Using pneumatic tyres and including a brake, the Onshore Cruiser can travel a few town blocks from just a single foot-powered push. Mr Seresheff, former boilermaker turned self-taught engineer, is excited about the potential.

"This is the very first invention of its kind in the world," he said. "It goes faster than a skateboard and turns smoother, simulating the curves you can do on a surfboard. It's like surfing on land."

After brainstorming with his son and test pilot Travis, Mr Seresheff began tinkering with standard equipment to make something entirely original.

"It took a couple of years to get the precise steering right and a lot of my earlier ones I used material that was too light and it used to stretch," he said.

"My son has been testing it and people come up to us and say 'wow, where can I buy one?'"

Mr Seresheff has a patent on the invention and is looking for a manufacturing and marketing partner to help break into the public market.
