Man has skills

Not sure about brains. (j/k)


if a man speaks, and there isn't a woman around to hear him, is he still wrong?

I like having my elbow pads on when I do that.

I think, Where are his skid guards and how does he slow for the curves? 😄

Holy buckets!

Can you imagine how many trials and errors it took him to get that good and confident he can make it?

I bet those bearing were pretty hot for how small diameter those wheels are! That’s some serious sustained RPM

Uses his hands to slow for the sharp curves, gloves have a metal plate on the palm. my youngest son regrets all the years he skateboarded, has constant pain in his knees and shins.

His jeans are shredded. I doubt they offer any protection.
I wonder if he'll make enough from YouTube to buy these.

That is a long way to say “big deal.”

Show me something of value. Idiots that drink Monster, BASE jump, climb without rope and countless other worthless exploits, are mouth breathing space invaders.

You might as well watch the NFL or NBA for finding human feats of significance.

I don’t expect him to see 30 years of age.

I wondered what was tailgating him with a camera. Not good to fall and then get run over by a camera car.

When I had a skateboard 40 years ago

You run over a sand pebble and you’d go flying like Superman

I see kids today hitting cracks in sidewalks, rough asphalt and not have any spills.

Wheels must be more softer now

they are but for speed, they use a little harder wheel.

If you never had the speed wobbles and wiped out, you haven’t lived. 🤘🏻

It would be cool to see him crash at those speeds.

A kid that went to school with my brother was doing something like that on a local hill. He was dressed in shorts and shoes when he wiped out he was pretty well covered with road rash. He was on one of the not so steep sections when he wiped out in some gravel.

The hill was pretty steep we used to wait at the top and chase cars down it on our bikes. My dumb ass did that one day and ran into the coach from the local high school who was coming up the hill in his little Honda. I missed football season waiting for my wrist to heal up.

In one of the first turns, he put the front of the board on the pavement (rear wheels high in the air) to slow down. Never seen that done, but it slowed him way down. As other's have said, the chase camera got way too close a time or two.
