ROSEBURG, Ore. -- It's a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it. Victor Gurule covers his 17-mile-long paper route through Roseburg each day. To help the daily grind, Gurule does the route on his longboard.
"Working hard, not hardly working,” said Gurule. “But you'll have to know just how far to lean back in order to control yourself while going down the hill at, you know, 10 to 20 miles an hour."
The 16-year-old explained his philosophy on combining a board with his bundle of newspapers.
“Hey, I might as well longboard and make money at the same time, right?” he said.
From the highest hills in Roseburg, Gurule finds the outlook on delivering papers dismal.
“Eventually in time I do believe paper routes wont be there anymore because of how vast the internet is,” Gurule said.
Yet until the last hard copy is kicked to the curb this skater said he’s gonna ride it out.
