This paper examines the feasibility of a planned attempt by Bart Simpson to jump Springfield Gorge on a skateboard. In order to clear the gorge, we have calculated that Bart would need to reach a speed of $22\pm 4.3ms^{-1}$. In order to reach this speed we estimate the drop-in to Springfield Gorge would require an angle of descent $> 50$ degrees.
