It seems that all the great teen crazes have at least some association with warm summer days. That goes for Hula Hoops and Frisbees to surfboards, skateboards and in-line skates. Now, the makers of an odd-looking little conveyance called the Snakeboard hope they have the latest hot-weather hit. The Snakeboard looks something like a skateboard--but not quite.

It's all about busting some "big air." And Jay Beatty of Ventura can do it better than anyone in the world. Jay, 14, took up the new sport of snakeboarding only two years ago, and last September he jumped, whirled and carved his way to the world championship in England. He has won every snakeboarding competition he's entered since then, and on Saturday he hopes to continue his roll when the 1995 Krazzy Kouch Spring Tour lands in Oxnard for the second of nine national competitions.

In your youth you were a righteous dude. As a gawky pre-teen you terrorized neighborhood streets on a skateboard--your parents terrified you would slam into a parked car, the neighbors terrified that car would be theirs. Slightly older, you surfed your way around the globe, the highlight of your oceanic quest coming when, at a remote Indonesian reef break, you jumped out of a boat and nearly landed on the back of a shark. Young and reckless. Unfortunately, these days you are neither.

After just 1 1/2 years of trying his hand at a new sport called snakeboarding, 14-year-old Jay Beatty of Ventura has won the world championship in England and become a star of the fledgling sport. Jay was flown to London by Snakeboard USA, the country's only snakeboard manufacturer, and beat out 34 competitors last weekend to win the 1994 World Snakeboarding Championships.
