Bay College and the world's biggest skateboard...

Bay College students are hoping to get a mention in the Guinness Book of World Records.

They've built what they think is the world's biggest skateboard.

How big? Try just over 31 feet long.

"When it all comes together, you see things," explains Shaun Anderson, the project leader. "It started from a regular board, to the deck, the trucks, to the tires, and then it came into something that looks like a skateboard."

To qualify as a world record, it has to turn and operate just like the real thing.

The students are now sending an application to London in hopes of beating a group in new York that's contending for the same record.

Incidentally, Governor Granholm Friday took a brief ride on the gigantic skateboard.
