In the beginning there was Surfing, which gave birth to Skateboarding, which spawned Buttboarding, which evolved into Steetluging. Now with any good thing you have a group of people who are never satisfied until they add power. This is why the world of Powered Streetluge now exits.


Streetluge is lying down on a long, specialized skateboard and riding down a paved road or path.
Darren Lott - Streetluge Survival Guide 1998


A Powered Streetluge is a hybrid Streetluge that has been modified by adding a power source
other than gravity be it gas, jet, rocket, electric, etc.

Dave Pullman
Dave begin Streetluging in 2002 after watching the movie Roller Ball with Chris Klien, it featured two Streetlugers racing down hill in San Francisco. After seeing the Harley-Davidson® Powered Streetluge in 2007 he was inspired to build a Power Streetluge of his own. After constructing his Powered Streetluge Dave took things to the next level by hand shaping and building front and rear fairings for his Powered Streetluge to greatly improve the aerodynamics. With testing still waiting to be done Dave is already envisioning his next Powered Streetluge and it includes a Hiyabusa motor.

Keep checking back to see how testing goes on Dave's Powered Streetluge, video is coming.

Luc Conrardy

Luc lives in Belgium and spent quite a while (over two years) constructing his gas turbine’s building several jet powered steps with some advice from Bob Swartz. You can see the unique custom wing / fuel tank he designed for stability and the Olympus AMT 52lbs thrust engine he used.

He has currently only been to 50mph on his Jet Powered Streetluge but plans to increase that when he finds a more suitable location to run.

Jenna Morrison

Jenna lives in Southern New Jersey and began Streetluging at the age of 14 then quickly moved on to racing at age 15. Competing in a sport dominated by the opposite sex did not matter to Jenna event thou her father did have concerns. The guys saw her as just another competitor. At her first Madison County Gravity Fest it was obvious to Jenna that speed was not an issue making runs at nearly 70mph. So when she climbed aboard the 100cc Powered Streetluge at the Texas Mile event in October 2007 she was more than ready for the challenge. Who knew that rather then walk in her father's footsteps she chose to ride right over them by recording a top speed of 102.002mph at her first event.

Video Clip of Jenna's October 6th, 2007 102.002mph Run

On September 19, 2008 While attending the World of Speed event held on the Bonneville Salt Flats Jenna pushed her top speed record to 113.398mph with her two run average being 113.247mph. During the same event Jenna made several runs above the 100mph mark with a few reaching the 100mph mark in the first 1/2 mile.

Happy with her first Bonneville Salt Flats event Jenna was disappointed she did not break the 120mph mark. Jenna's 2009 plans are to give the ¼ mile a try and return to the World of Speed event in 2009. She would really like to make the 130mph club and get her 130mph certificate.

On August 9, 2009 At the American Bike Fest held on Maryland International Raceway Jenna Morrison beat Bob Swartz in the first official Powered Streetluge race in a best two out of three race.

On September 6, 2009 The Press of Atlantic City is doing an article on Jenna and her record attempt. Press reporter Susan Lulgjuraj pressofatlanticcity.com/blogs/susan_lulgjuraj came out and interviewed her so they can post a before article and then when we return an after article on her achievements. If it works out they'll also be posting the article in their website. pressofatlanticcity.com/sports

Roland Morrison
Roland lives in Southern New Jersey and started researching ways to mount a gas motor to the back of a Streetluge in July of 2004. His first proto type PS1 Powered Streetluge used a small chainsaw motor and ran just over 50mph. Proto type II PS2 used a KT-100 Yamaha motor and broke the 100mph mark he set for his first goal. He furthered his record by taking PS2 to the World of Speed 2006 event on the world famous Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah (USA) where he pushed his record to 105mph. Pursuing his never ending goal of Faster Roland in June of 2007 finished work on his new Powered Streetluge PS3 that is powerd by a 1200cc Harley-Davidson® Sportster® motor which he took to the Texas Mile event in October 2007. On his first test run he recorded a pass of 114.004mph. His second two runs met with technical difficulties and was no longer able to continue.

On March 1, 2008 Roland was invited down to Maryland International Raceway to see what the 1200cc Harley-Davidson® Powered Streetluge would do in the 1/4 mile. On his first test run he recorded a 77mph pass, second was an 88mph pass, third was a 95mph pass and on his last pass he broke the 100mph mark with 100.23mph pass.

On June 22, 2008 Roland was invited down to Maryland International Raceway to display and make exhibition runs for MIR's summer bike fest. On his first test run he recorded a 107mph pass, second was an 112mph pass, third was a 110mph pass and his last was a 115.13mph pass.

On September 17, 2008 While attending the World of Speed event held on the Bonneville Salt Flats Roland pushed his top speed record to 138.25mph on the short course and joined the 130mph club. On September 20, 2008 at the same event Roland pushed his top speed record even further on the long course by running 145.17mph for the last run of the event. During this run all 4 front wheels began to melt at 140mph and when he rolled to a stop he found that all 4 where shredded. His two run average for the event was 141.714mph.

April 19, 2012 AHDRA event day 1 at Atco Raceway, giving the new motor a run with the goal of 120mph, 121.14 on my first run, new 1/4 mile record. Maybe I should shoot a little higher Tomorrow<

April 20, 2012 AHDRA event day 2 at Atco Raceway, Yesterdays new record of 121.14mph did not last long, second pass 125.89mph is now the 1/4 record. The new motor is more power then I expected but I have not spun the rear wheel on the line so it has more in it.

June 2, 2012 MIR event Maryland International Raceway for the Summer Showdown to display and make exhibition runs. Atco proved the new motor has a lot more powered but it proved it Today by breaking the 11 second mark with a 11.91 second pass.
