People are drawn too and fascinated by objects that exhibit prowess in the area of speed. The term "objects" covers a broad spectrum ranging from race cars to cheetahs and some where in there lies downhill skateboarding. Its not natural for a human being to captivate gravity and utilize it to achieve speeds that could be considered suicidal which is what adds to the allure of it. Recently the visuals that captivate this raw speed have really advanced in the aspect of displaying accurately just how fast 50 mph feels when all you have underneath you is a skateboard. This in its self has captured the attention of some "big wigs" so to speak which ultimately lead to a super rad event that just went down in San Fransisco California known as the Red Bull Steep Crest. When you combine high octane energy beverages with one of the steepest and gnarliest hills in San Fran and then throw the worlds elite down hill specialists at it the result has to be bangin'. Louis Pilloni gives us a taste of the main course with this clip he captured from a strategically placed helmet cam. Thanks Louis, we owe you one. This clip is one to show your boss, mom, or teacher and even they will get amped! And yes its that Will Royce guy who won again...dudes steezin right now folks.
Thanks for stopping by to refill on your shred needs. Get out and enjoy skateboarding in the way that you see most fit because there is no right way to wrongboard. JAH Bless y'all and make sure to support your local shops and skater owned companies!
I am a skater who lives in Baltimore, MD. I am looking to spread the love of skateboarding through both visual and written means.
