Riding the Boards for the November Fiesta of San Andrés

Have you ever watched an episode of Jackass and thought you might quite like to have a go at something as mad as that? If so, get yourself one of those wooden tea trays with handles, wax the bottom so it’s as slippery as an eel dipped in oil, and get yourself along to Icod de los Vinos on the nights of 29th or 30th November. Then, launch yourself, atop your tray, down a street so steep you have to lean to stand upright, and gather enough breakneck speed to leave the ground at the slightest bump and return to earth in a blaze of sparks before finally coming to a flying halt at a mound of old tyres.
