Skateboard Durability

I found this video while randomly perusing the internet. This guy Tim Piumarta works for NHS/Santa Cruz and he's created this contraption for testing the strength of boards. I think it's pretty damn cool. I've never really been into Santa Cruz or Creature (I've only ever owned one SC board in my 20+ years of skating and that was back in the late 80's). Who knows if I'll ever get around to ride one of these "strong" boards. I doubt any other board companies put this much research or engineering into their board testing.
