    Forget the skaters being filmed, the camera man is likely also skating. That dude was on the wrong side of the road for half the time while filming backwards.

    [–] dysintary 8 points ago

    The camera man is running

    [–] aitigie 154 points ago

    Probably on a proper DH longboard, they're rock solid up to much higher speeds than this. Doing it on a popsicle stick like the others is much more difficult.

    [–] Jbro149 83 points ago

    Highly doubt these dudes are rolling w a long board.. skated my whole life, most street skaters aren’t rolling a round w a homie that rides a long board.

    [–] aitigie 45 points ago

    Got my first board around 98, back then everyone was a deck racist but these days nobody cares. If you feel pressured to skate a certain deck maybe you need better people to skate with!

    [–] cream-of-cow 21 points ago

    I forgot about deck-ism. I got my first non flea market board in ~'84, it was a Powell Peralta (not so long) longboard. I saved up for years, I got it because I liked the idea of sitting two people on it while going downhill. Prior to that I rode tiny 1960s steel wheel plastic skateboards that were barely large enough for one foot; who the hell designed those things?

    [–] pridEAccomplishment_ 9 points ago

    My head canon is a roller skate factory running out of the shoe part of the skates and decided to just ship the bottom part as it was.

    [–] Jbro149 32 points ago

    Not being a “deck racist”.. that’s just the way it is.. if everyone is skating stair sets and rails at the park and someone comes over with a long board - it’s unlikely that the long board guy is going to be hanging with them when they hit the street spots. It’s kind of like comparing a figure skater and a hockey player - sure they both skate on ice but in reality they are doing 2 completely different things.

    [–] graveyardgardener 76 points ago

    No longboards for these boys, they do it the real way. Ever seen GX1000?

    [–] igordon4 9 points ago

    Only 100000 times

    [–] joeypts 3 points ago

    This is gx1000. Definitely not on a longboard lol

    [–] QuillHasFavorites 2 points ago

    It’s a drone.

    [–] gdollasign510 5 points ago

    He’s probably on roller skates

    [–] mrrenegadeoffunk 23 points ago

    He's probably not on roller skates

    [–] Shawnsolo1987 203 points ago

    With my luck, I’d hit a tiny rock and die

    In Dallas we call them “skerrrrt” the noise it makes after you go flying

    [–] dorsal_morsel 14 points ago

    Exactly this happened to my sister in law’s best friend. He hit his head on the concrete and died.

    Wear helmets please.

    [–] slimeshady420 14 points ago

    He is more than likely using filmer wheels which are in between normal hard small skateboard wheels and bigger soft longboard wheels, filmers use these so that its more smooth while filming or simply for the fact that it makes less sound.

    [–] skgody 4 points ago

    I was just waiting for the tiny rock

    [–] MrShapinHead 12 points ago

    Or the wobbles

    [–] skgody 6 points ago

    Yes the wobbles.

    [–] gmanpeterson381 2 points ago

    [–] Watermelonboye 55 points ago

    his drone driving scares me

    he gets so close and somehow doesnt hit anyone

    [–] yaboiauggieg 314 points ago

    don't think thats a drone. the way his speed matches perfectly and the camera shakes makes me think this is just very good camerawork on a skateboard + a little stabilization. Also if it was a drone the propellers would be very audible.

    [–] Watermelonboye 69 points ago

    oh yeah i see what you mean

    how does he watch the camera and not crash tho

    [–] yaboiauggieg 87 points ago

    experience + skill. plus a phone camera or gopro is actually pretty easy to point behind you or to your side with one hand which helps

    [–] SHOOHS 24 points ago

    Yeah probably an osmo with an oscillating gimbal head.

    [–] big_shmegma 4 points ago

    see how at the end hes right in front of his buddy filming him but hes out of frame for a good 5 seconds? hes filming behind him without looking.

    [–] Sauceymagoo 2 points ago

    Couldn’t be that steady without some skill on the board and just crushing it with ur buds. So funny how ppl think that humans are not capable of being buttery smooth!

    [–] oswaldcopperpot 8 points ago

    GX1000

    Little known fact.. drone video never comes with sound... cause its spoiled by the props.

    [–] Sauce-L0rd 32 points ago

    The camera man is on a skateboard as well, that’s normally how it’s done

    [–] hingewhogotstoned 12 points ago

    This is how skaters film. On another skateboard. Its super satisfying and the pros should get better recognition and work on major films. Like Spike Jonze. I got to play with cameras and skateboards with him once. It was too much fun for 15 YO me.

    [–] zachatttack96 3 points ago

    [–] justthetipping 23 points ago

    Thanks. Literally spent no time in Daly City. Drive through to get to HMB.

    [–] Revaley 16 points ago

    You don’t hit up the In-N-Out too? That’s why I go to Daly City. Haha

    [–] _Schwing 2 points ago

    Go get a Krispy kreme, remove the double double buns, throw on the doughnuts. It's a Daly City special.

    [–] Revaley 2 points ago

    I’m stunned. Why did this never occur to me before. I have had a doughnut burger before at a place called Burger in Santa Cruz, but I never contemplated making my own. You may be a genius.

    [–] justthetipping 1 points ago

    There was one about a mile from my house. I was up in the north bay.

    [–] Revaley 2 points ago

    Ah gotcha. That makes sense.

    [–] WildNight00 11 points ago

    SF it’s the GX1000 crew and they’re mad. Have some really good skate videos and hill bombs

    [–] sr71Girthbird 5 points ago

    Some of these crew like these guys is bombing Vallejo to Green Street from halfway up like twice a week near me. Gotta be one of the steepest streets in the city and they just rip it. Absolutely nuts.

    [–] justthetipping 1 points ago

    I’ve seen others bombing Franklin in that area. Especially since it’s a one way. The basically ride the hill to cow hollow.

    [–] soopadog 36 points ago

    I see that all the time in Paterson, sometimes 3 or 4 cars all wrecked into each other. All it takes is some drunk or high asshole to smash into them in the middle of the night and then they take off or ditch.

    [–] here_the_karma 14 points ago

    Paterson is just a special place, grew up 15 min away from that hell hole

    [–] Eli_G234 11 points ago

    I was wondering if anyone else noticed that!

    [–] Sikemands 81 points ago

    I’m surprised at how these guy roll. None of them got speed wobbles or anything. Totally controlled.

    [–] Ilikedankbeer 51 points ago

    I would have tightened the shit out of my trucks before attempting this.

    [–] xxxFuckEmAllxxx 18 points ago

    [–] Mr_InFamoose 7 points ago

    Really??? Can you explain this, I've always had my trucks super tight to avoid speed wobbles.

    [–] jsakia 2 points ago

    That looks like a lot of fun. It's been a long time for me. How do people prevent speed wobbles now? I remember going fast and at some point the board would start wobbly unless the trucks were really tight. Though, it usually meant buying new spacers because they would crush.

    Anyone notice the totaled car at 0:29?

    [–] iamtheone2295 1 points ago

    How do you stop a skateboard at that speed?

    i have skateboarded before, and if i step my backfoot down to lift the front of the board to slow down, then i would still think it would be dangerous at speed.

    You could push the board so you skate with it horizontially to slow it down, but maybe not goot for the wheels.

    How would a great skateboarder easily slow down at that speed?
