Balloon Bowl – Popping 8,000 Balloons with Skateboard

When you bowl, the object is to knock down as as many pins as possible. With Skateboard Balloon Bowling, the goal is to pop balloons with your skateboard.

Filmed at the Department of Skateboarding in Portland, Oregon, this video shows a guy named Matt Beach trying to pop 8,000 (yes, 8,000 – took them over three hours to blow them all up using two air compressors) balloons simply by skateboarding. As you watch the video, you’ll hear the balloons popping.

When they first set to do this experiment, they thought it would fail because of popped balloons getting stuck in the wheels. But as you can see, that wasn’t the case at all. Enjoy!

Skateboard Balloon Bowling

I had this idea for a while to fill a skate bowl with balloons and try to ride through them. It seemed like the chances of it working were slim. I figured they might make your wheels stop. We finally tried it anyways and as you can see from this video we made of Matt Beach, it worked just fine. The popping sounds are not added in. That is the real audio of balloons popping. it took over 3 hours to blow up nearly 8000 balloons using 2 air compressors to get it full enough. location- Department Of Skateboarding, Portland, OR.
