Offbeat Video

An oblivious tourist rode down the middle of a main road on a hoverboard.

As Kendra Tippe and her husband drove through their hometown of Canmore, Alberta, Canada, on July 22, they spotted a man wearing a red hoodie and shorts travelling through the centre of the road.

 Passing him on their way to go grocery shopping, the pair were stunned when they realised he was nonchalantly riding a hoverboard down the tarmac.

 Kendra said: “We were very surprised but thought it was pretty funny to see.

“Canmore is a small tourist town in the Rocky Mountains, so sometimes you see strange stuff people do but this was a new one for us.

“We saw him for about a minute, but he came down one street and turned down another so I’m assuming he had been going like this throughout the town.

 “He was calm and casual like this was a normal way to be traveling on the street.”
