Riding through beach sand, thick roots, riding UP stairs, and more...

Oh yeah, all on ONE wheel!

You make it look too easy. Riding over the roots is impressive enough, but up those stairs? Dang.

Saw someone on a unicycle at the park a few months back. The thing looks... unsafe. Great skills mastering it.

I think I would hurt myself if I tried that.

Good job though!

Reminds me of some of the stuff I'd see when the unicycles would work out at Grant's Tomb, NYC on Sunday mornings.
