Skateboard, only covered Australia once!

Skateboard, only covered Australia once. Sentimental attachment but may sell. British skateboarder Dave Cornthwaiteis contemplating putting his custom-made yellow skateboard Elsa up for sale. Mr Cornthwaite says he's become "incredibly sentimental" about Elsa after riding a world-record 5823km from Perth to Brisbane. The 27-year-old raised more than A$40,000 ($45,677) for three charities during the five-month journey, averaging 65km a day.

He says he made the "heartbreaking" decision to put Elsa up for sale if it helps reach his trip's charity fundraising goal of A$100,000.

"I know she's just a skateboard but we are very, very close. I've spent more time with this board than I have spent with a girl, put it that way."
