Inventing A New Sport Is Never Easy

People love sports. People also like being entrepreneurs and inventors. What better way to combine these three favorites than to invent a new sport?

That is precisely what four guys from Ramberg, Norway thought. But thinking up a new sport is no piece of cake. Most of the good ones are already taken. And it can be a challenge to get anyone to try a new one.

But Aksel, Henrik, Jakob, and Tobias thought they had come up with the perfect solution. By using already available sporting equipment and a pastime many people already enjoy, they created a brand new sport. Surfboard Napping.

The goal of surfboard napping is to take the longest nap without falling off your board. Jakob always loses. He blames his restless-leg syndrome.

So far, surfboard napping hasn’t caught on. But the fellas are not giving up. The four of them are hoping to raise enough funds to relocate to California, where the frigid waters of the North Atlantic won’t be such a deterrent.
