Zapata Racing was created by Franky Zapata and became known a few summers ago for the incredible Flyboard. Extending on the idea of the fun summer gadget, the company has now introduced the first real life Hoverboard. The Zapata Racing Hoverboard might come as close to the real deal from Back To the Future, as currently possible. Watch the video below to see the fun water action and if you are lucky, you get to try one out in the near future at a beach resort close to you.
Its been crazy to watch the progression and popularity of skateboarding grow in the world. Its awesome to see young kids from all over the world find great pride and accomplishment through skateboarding. We believe skateboarding helps many kids learn to set goals and achieve them. A recent video of 9-year-old Australian skater Sabre Norris landing her first 540 on vert has been released by Steve Berra and Eric Koston’s The Berrics platform. The video sees Sabre make a few failed attempts before finally landing the trick in her 75th attempt of the day. Having only started skating three years ago when she wasn’t able to have a bike, she chose to opt for a skateboard instead. Inspired by online videos of professional skateboarder Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins performing the trick, the young skater claims she had to try it for herself. Skateboarding is definitely this girls GOLD DEED and she’s only going to get better!

The company created a plastic bottle with a cap that can only be twisted open by another cap.
They set up a cooler full of the bottles on the first day at a Colombian university, “a day when talks and interactions are reduced to zero.” In the video, students are seen grabbing cokes and forming friendships with a single twist.
This is an awesome video of the top drivers in the world. Created as the world’s first pitch-black racetrack with a course created from hundreds of beams of light, Ken Block, along with DTM drivers Augusto Farfus, Mike Rockenfeller and Lamborghini Squadra Corse test driver Adrian Zaugg, compete against the one-of-a-kind track. Working together to perform various synchronized stunts including a four-car-relay, other obstacles include the Laser Tunnel, Laser Drift, Slalom and Laser Box – all created out of light. One of the highlights is Ken landing his 2014 Ford Fiesta ST RX43 in a synchronized jump over Mike Rockenfeller’s Audi R8 V10, without using a speedometer and RPM, on a wet track due to rain.
Some people say, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” while other’s say, “technology is a gift of God.” However you feel about the addition of electricity to a skateboard, the Marbel board is the world’s lightest electric skateboard, weighing in at just 9 lbs. Lighter than any other electric vehicle in the world, apart from perhaps a miniature electric remote control car, the Marbel can reach up to 20 MPH uphill. Just one charge can give it 10 real world miles, which should be enough to get you to work between pushing and electric assistance. If that wasn’t enough, it can connect to your smartphone to customize your riding style and even control the throttle of your board. Currently raising funds for its Kickstarter campaign, you can contribute by visiting the Marbel page and watch their video.
A true father-son project, New York City-based artist Matt Willet came up with the idea of the golden skateboard and enlisted the help of his dad, who works at Epner Technologies in Brooklyn making gold-plated components for NASA. On the latest episode of Network A’s Dose, host Tim Brodhagen visited the duo to see firsthand how they make 99.99% pure electro-plated skateboards. Watch as Willet and his dad completely transform all the parts of a Shut skateboard complete, progressing through copper plating, nickel plating and finally finished with gold. The board is then polished to a mirror finish. The final product weighs nine pounds and is completely functional.
Living legendTony Hawk shows us that he still has those trademark airborne skills. The skateboarder. risks his life by flying over a MINI Cooper Hardtop while it’s on the move. Using no editing tricks or stunts, Hawk manages to catch wind and effortlessly sail all the way over the car just moments before it plows through the ramp he’d just launched off. Its a must watch video.
GOLD DEEDS had the privilege of being invited to the Budweiser #MADEINAMERICA event last night! It was still more than an hour before the show, but the line for the club already stretched the length of the building, and everyone was fidgeting uncomfortably as they silently reassured themselves the dead legs and achy feet would all be worth it once they got inside. Candyland was slotted to perform, as was Cash Cash. The performance from both was awesome! They kept the crowd engaged with the music, and provided over 3 hours of entertainment! Here’s short video casing the event:
We are huge fans of the musicindustry and we recognize the influences that Michael Jackson made in music. His GOLD DEEDS to the world was his music, and it was great to see him perform last night.

The king of pop performed the song “Slave to the Rhythm” from his posthumous album XSCAPE at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas this weekend. You can watch the performance now in the video.
