Next time I need new pedals, I'll give that guy a call- he's not using his!

That's pretty close to flying actually.
Wow amazing video. New goal: learn french so I can ask him to teach me please. I can coast normally but stand up coasting?!? I didn't even know that was a thing.

Now think again, and look at another Swiss rider, Julien; who took standing coasting a level up.
That's the skill that came to my mind at the OP's Q.

Julien's trick is incredible but wouldn't be practical for traveling around, as you wouldn't be able to control your speed, or even sit back down to start pedaling again (I assume).

People usually only coast (glide?) on a 20" or 24" because on larger wheels, the tire is much closer to your body, or so I've heard, but maybe stand-up coasting would be equally possible on a larger wheel. Of course, for me all these tricks are, at best, in the extremely distant future.

Nor it's ideal to move 768 Gallon of milk in once.
You're adding your own desires, I was just answering the OP.

I'm with you and Harper. If I can fly, I can bring the uni with me. Even pretend I'm riding it!

If I had to pick a unicycle skill for my current life, I think I'd take "riding fast downhill with the brake on." Something I'm afraid to do.

I take it you only ride fast downhill now without the brake
