This video, Everyday by Charles Bergquist, reminds me a bit of a video I posted a while ago of ballet dancers in slow motion. Very different physical art, but skateboarding has the same quality of the practitioners moving in ways that seem nearly impossible to the uninitiated. Unlike ballet dancers, they do it on four wheels that they have to keep in motion with them the whole time (or disastrous events occur).
The video has some great angles and close-ups that, amongst other things, show detail of what’s really happening during a rail slide.
