    love it, cheers Nathan for beating the record! For others wanting to try, I think cement or any other hard floor is also acceptable.

    It's funny my wife was in the other room going "oooh", "ahh are you OK?" but it doesn't actually hurt but looks cool enough to appear dangerous - although I've heard it's not good for your back if you not careful with landing. Yeah this is labelled "hardwood" but cement or any other hard floor should be fine too... was surprisingly more difficult because the wheels were much more slippery. This was about 10 attempts until the chair broke :)

    Again great balancing skills Peter. I like this one better than the carpet because of difficulty level is higher. How many times did you fall over on your gluteus maximus before getting it to be a record? ha-ha-ha
