Get into Shaun White's head during this Pipe Course Preview at the Winter X Games 2013 in Aspen. Congratulations on the sixth win, Shaun!
Skateboarder Decio Lourenco's popularity is soaring thanks to his starring role in a YouTube video that shows him hurtling down a steep mountain road at 68 mph to set off a speed camera. Now the cops in South Africa are after Lourenco for what presumably amounts to reckless driving.
"We've handed over the matter to traffic officials and want him arrested," JP Smith, the Cape Town official in charge of safety and security, told Reuters on Thursday. "The speed limit is irrelevant. He is seen careening down the road in a reckless and dangerous manner."
The video, titled, "Spoofing the Traffic Camera--Longboarding without Limits," has garnered more than 212,000 views since it was uploaded on Jan. 26.
The Arbor Collective just dropped a teaser of their rider Ian Sams hitting some rails. Sams shows off his urban style of riding using elements found around town, including a bridge and a stair set at a school.
"Ian Sams is always somewhere. Somewhere is anywhere really... In his head, rolling up, and dropping in all qualify. We generally see him crushing it in Bear Mountain's Sunday In The Park episodes, but this year, Sams is lost. We took him out of his element and on the road with friends to film for a full length video part dropping Fall 2013. In this episode, Erik Leon joins the crew for a week of Montana mayhem and shredding in the middle of nowhere. Let it roll!"
"Uncommon skateboarding tricks in super slow motion. Filmed at 1,000 frames per second with a Redlake N3 high speed camera. Since skateboarding trick names are defined by common usage and these tricks are not very common, some of them don't have well-established names. So here are my best guesses as to what they should be called:

Rails, Park and Backcountry are Nisse's favorite playgrounds. Needless to say, he loves all kind of terrains and throw massive tricks with his own f.....n' incredible style.
He filmed for Standard Films and had a great part in their latest release 2012 as well as in Alive & Kickin', the last Rip Curl movie
While filming a commercial for a friend's kiteboarding school (video to come soon) in St. Croix, US Virgin Islands I had a chance to do a little skating down the mountain roads. This particular road lead down to the beach that we had been kiting and filming at for the past few days.
Filming was done by Leading Edge Kiteboarding School owners Chris Doyle and Sara Seaver; with additional footage from a GoPro pole-cam setup made out of two shower curtain rods that were duct taped together (classy).
