Winch Madness

Want to wakeskating but don’t have a lake… or a boat?

Don’t worry; if you can find yourself a few feet of water and a winch, you can go winchboarding.

…The Grinch is ready to tow you?


Distortion Boarding’s Grinch Winch and Snow Grinch are winch machines designed for wakeboarding, skateboarding, snowboarding, surfing, and any other board sport where you need a little extra speed and momentum to pull off sick tricks.

With an adjustable hand throttle for varying the towing speed, a hydraulic brake for quick and easy stops, a rope friendly roller system that allows you to tow from almost any angle, and a 7 hp gas engine with 90:1 overdrive for top speeds of 25 to 30 MPH and deepwater starts, the Grinch is designed to be very user friendly.

With an adapter for a 2” receiver hitch on your vehicle, a tow kit for wheeling around, and the old school mounting method of just hammering the thing into the ground with stakes, the Winch is ready to go when and where you are, provided you can bring the necessary board skills to the table of course.

Just make sure your health insurance is in good shape before grabbing the rope, because this is one fun way to go down in a blaze of glory.

…Unicycles are good for tricks?

I always thought that unicycling looked hard enough on its own. Apparently, if you’re getting good at your one wheeled cycle though, rolling around just isn’t going to keep you entertained; you’ve got to jump and spin and balance and other crazy stuff like that. Check out the following videos for an example of what I mean.

Ready to give it a try yourself? One of these is sure to help you on your way:
