As the world slowly is shuttered indoors and sports have become completely irrelevant, people need to find a way to pass the time. As one of the more less mainstream sports, there is no doubt skateboarding is one past time that can divide opinions. But it is also an incredible sport on an individual level, like climbing, specifically for film. Watching empty city streets being used as a skater's playground is truly surreal. Check out these skateboarder's as the take over a seemingly abandoned city. From REDirect - Urban Isolation.
Lots of us played Tony Hawk: Pro Skater and expected to leave the house doing kickflip to tailslide to bluntslide to that Chad Muska beats-slide where he pulls out a boombox. But very few of us could.
Still there are skateboarders who can trump the impossible things we’ve seen in video games. One of them is Dan Mancina, a skateboarder who is legally blind.
Mancina, who’s vision started to fade at 13, only has a slight amount of peripheral vision and a cane, but he’s still able to pull off some things most could only dream of — namely skating with a smooth controlled style. That’s the real money.
But according to Spolid, that’s not all that Mancina can do. In the video compilation “Dan Mancina Does Stuff Blind,” he chops wood, throws a bullseye, and fires a machine gun. Let this be an inspiration to all of us.
This is the third design attempt in a project to revamp a skate park in New Zealand that has locals and the designer at odds. The designer, Dave North, says that the design was not intentionally shaped like a man's privates to spite the local skaters who have disapproved of his previous design submissions. He told Stuff that it wouldn't be so obvious once it was constructed:
It's not the first penis-shaped bowl... it's symmetrical and functional, and you can't tell it looks like a penis unless you're looking at it from space.
Some residents are concerned with the skate park being known as the skate park with the peculiarly shaped features. One commenter points out that it's a good design, although his argument does sort of support that fear:
Actually this is a very functional design, much like the one in Nelson, which is a blast to carve up. Yes my kids call it the "willy" bowl, but who cares.
Skateboarder, Patrik Wallner, put together this video of what North Korea looked like during a recent trip, which happened to coincide with the 100th birthday celebration of long deceased ruler, Kim Il-Sung. As polarizing as opinions of North Korea can be, it certainly makes an interesting backdrop for this clip.
