While many of us prefer to keep our bathtubs indoors, Nik Borland took one to the streets last month - and it paid off.
The Kaikorai Valley College head boy won the novelty section of the Manor Pl Trolley Derby by hurtling down the hill in a wheeled bathtub, complete with shower head.
It was something his father "knocked up" a month before the race with a tub bought from a landfill for $10.
"It's good for a laugh," he said.
He also won the super-modified section on an adapted bicycle with a polystyrene body attached and training wheels which moved on gas struts.
The bike, built two years ago, was another of his father's creations.
"He just tinkers."
Though Nik has not inherited his father's creative talent, he does enjoy the "practical side of things" and describes trolley racing as "a bit of fun" where you can turn up on the day and have a go.
He had been racing for the past five years and had never been placed higher than second so it was an achievement to gain two first places on the day.
"I was pretty stoked."
His father was "pretty chuffed about it as well".
In his spare time, Nik enjoys music and riding motorbikes and was unsure what his future would hold.
