I've heard of people getting school credit for piano...ect where they actually take tests in the subject despite it being outside of school, but I have never heard of anyone getting credit for riding. Sure would be sweet if you could though.

I tried

I tried it, They give you the same lame non-rider answer. All you do when you ride is twist the throttle!

You may be able to get some "independent study" credits for riding. BUT, there will be far more work involved than you think. You will have to prove you learned something during this experience. Your surfing budy may have done some sort of oceanic surveys or kept track of the tides to justify it as an educational experience.

Keeping good records of lap times, maintenance costs, labor time, etc, would be the order of the day. Finding a high school principal or advisor who is open to non-traditional educational activities will be the hardest part.

terms like "bad ass" won't sell the plan as well as, oh, say "life lessons" . . .

Just a thought :)

My son is more into wakeboarding than he is into dirt biking. He managed to get one unit of credit at California State University for wakeboarding. It was like a P.E. class, counted for general ed.

You might be able to find a college that has a Dirt Bike club and has some basis for providing "education" in this area. Or mabe you could start one.....
