Aaaah! This does not feel safe. Oh sweet Jesus I’m going to die, it’s too fast! There’s no way I can bail out now, that’s probably more dangerous. OhCrap OhCrap OhCrap OhCrap OhCrap. CRASH!
Cart Skating, also known as trolley surfing, is the action of standing in a shopping trolley (cart for you Americans) and getting someone to push you around, preferably at high speeds.
Standing in a shopping trolley which has no sense of directional movement beyond that which the fools pushing it have is not safe. It definitely does not feel safe, it feels scary. Regardless of your superb martial arts tai-chi perfect balance, you will feel as if you are going to fall over at all times, thus beating your poor vulnerable head against the floor in a permanently damaging way (involving lots of blood).
This is definitely not the recommended use for the trolley and will usually damage it within a short time, especially when doing jumps. Jumps will also usually damage the ‘surfer’. It is also illegal and may result in you being arrested by the police.
However if you still want to do this here are some tips I have picked up through a few misguided attempts at this particular sport.
Disclaimer: I accept no responsibility for you getting arrested or hospitalised doing something as stupid as this. Wear a helmet!
