Skateboarding?

This is an odd question, but then again Burning Man is an odd place

Is there any skateboarding at BM? It might sound farfetched, but mobile ramp systems are common in the industry and I'm sure there are more then a few boarders in BRC.

The only problems I see with it are supervision, liability and slipping as you ride on a ramp covered with playa dust! (perhaps try harder wheels)
And your bearings will probably be kaput, but that's what they do anyway

***PS, I'm ex-skateboarder who is coming out of a 15 year retirement. If anyone's interested in rolling the ESPN skatepark in Hazlewood with a quasi-newbie, maybe we could have a time.
