Overview

As featured in the Guinness Book of Records, this is the thrilling, inspiring story of Dave Cornthwaite's epic journey down under with a most unusual form of transport. Tired of the nine-to-five, Dave decided one day that he needed a change—a big change. He jumped on his Rollsrolls longboard (the Land Rover of skateboards) and broke a world record, skating the length of Great Britain. Not content with such glories, he decided to up the ante. During the second half of 2006, he skated from Perth to Brisbane, a distance of 4,500 miles, raising money for three childrens' charities in the process and earning an adventurous reputation. This is the story of Dave's motivation, his stamina, and his enduring good spirit in the face of a challenge.
