Ah those crazy Australians and their crazy ways. We first spied this five-wheeled Oz contraption back in 2005 and now, like many of its countrymen, it's over here – although not behind the bar of a London pub.So why ditch centuries of two-wheeled convention to ride something that looks like the result of a drunken night between a BMX and a supermarket trolley? In a word: cornering.By whipping off the front wheel and replacing it with four small ones, turns become more akin to surfing or boarding (hence the name) offering an opportunity for land-based thrills for surf and powder-starved adrenaline junkies.It is, as UK seller Tasty Adventures describes it, 'totally sick'. Or possibly just vomit inducing. Should liven up the daily commute at any rate.Essentials StreetSurfer Price: £500 On sale: Now Contact: Tasty AdventuresRelated stories: Gadget of the Day – Magic Wheel Gadget of the Day – Tasty Land Ski The surfer’s snowboard
