Years ago, I thought deeply about magical modes of transportation. I considered trying to build a hovercraft so I could travel to nearby locations in a mysterious way. After many complications, it dawned on me that a simple skateboard is magical. It was Tony Hawk himself that started skating because he saw guys flying out of empty swimming pools and thought to himself, "I want to do that, I want to fly." So I put a carpet over my skateboard and the flying carpet was born.
