Skateboard Racers

Skateboard Racers

When you are a little curious and you see guys flying down a hill on a skateboard, the natural thing for me to do is ask what they are up to. Turns out they were practicing for races. And if you think just going down a street is dangerous, these skateboarders do it without closing off that street. It’s almost like road hockey players. They play and get out of the way when vehicles come. The boarders have look outs that let them know when everything is clear and then the race is on. When I look at these photos I find it hard to believe these guys are maintaining their balance, while getting so close to the unforgiving road.
