Watch a Bunch of Medieval LARPers Joust Using 'Hoverboards' as Horses

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

Self-balancing scooters are great. They're so great that people everywhere have started calling them hoverboards (guilty), even though they definitely don’t hover. A group of LARP-loving nerds are also big fans, and have decided to make a video of them jousting in full Medieval gear, while balanced on these hi-tech contraptions.

Once you get past the introduction -- in which the word ‘awesome’ is used excessively -- it’s a thoroughly entertaining watch, with the slo-mo shots particularly good. There are a couple of balance issues, but the chaps get the hang of things impressively quickly. Next stage: incorporate these lightsabers that actually glow. [BGR]
