Ever driven a split bus in San Francisco? If so, that's no big deal.
Yes, you learn to use the e-brake when starting from a start facing uphill. Smile

the gradient isn't the problem - it's the fact he's on some boards balanced on a couple of poles, one end of which is on a boat (hopefully moored), over water...

incidentally in the uk hill starts are part of the driving test

that is a pretty good angle to start off on slippery boards

That pic scares the shit out of me. One lurch of the clutch and the boards go back instead of the bus going forward, and it's in the drink.

Wow, I wonder if it turned out alright.

add in the mix that I disabled the choke on my bus, since the screws wallered out and it would fall out sometimes. That adds to the fun till it warms up.

Ah, but the boards are dry, and the water is calm. Very Happy Don't worry!

Most drivers here would fail!

The bus still has hubcaps and a rear bumper. It looks really straight too. I wonder when that picture was taken.
