Starting a new line of longboards, with maximum stressed curves, and figured, hey, how about do some with octopus?

Here is one about half way :

Well, yes and no...this is a skateboard made for cruising. One kick moves you about 60 feet. Very, very fast..of course, due to my engineering genius with the amount of curve to the board.

Awesome, i have never longboarded, but would love to do it. Im a big fan of skateboarding and i practice for about 2 hours almost daily, so im sure i would love longboarding. If a skateboard deck with an octopus on it was ever made i would buy it in an instant.
