Skateboarder Matt Tomasello of Boston, Massachusetts, showcases mind-boggling tricks on his custom-made, modified skateboards!

Taking inspiration from complex trick videos, Tomasello aims to make otherwise-impossible maneuvers possible with decks that fold, unfold, rotate, and have trapdoors! Surrounded in his workshop by dozens of old skateboards, he sketches out his ideas before using power tools, home hardware, and bit and pieces from previous boards to construct new contraptions designs for creating and testing unique moves.
