The DESKA Board is a hybrid between a skateboard, a windsurfing board and a snowboard -- with a braking function -- fused into one.

Designed by Csaba Tolgyesy, the DESKA Board is a three-wheeled board that measures 200mm in diameter, enabling the street vehicle to ride over treacherous cracks, cobblestone and concrete surfaces, as well as dirt roads. The board is made from a combination of stainless steel and wood, and has a carbon sandwich structure with a break control lever placed at the back, which looks similar to a detached bicycle bike. The board has a banded convex shape, creating a low weight point for the board. What's more, a flexible "footbelt" system runs through the middle of the board where the rider can fit their feet through, enabling them to jump and perform high-speed turns.

To give you even more thrills, the board can be equipped with a windsurfing sail for those places with no downhill roads or snow.
