Louis Pilloni Raw Run (Skate House Media)

This is a pretty crazy video. Louis Pilloni, one of the most favored riders in the longboarding world and member of Skate House Media, bombs a gigantic mountain road with extreme steez, throwing in freeriding moves and handling several turns in switch. This guy really has some extreme talent. This video is a ridiculous 14 minute long raw run, so you better grab some popcorn for this one.

Skate House Media had this to say about this incredible run:

Longboarder Wanted By South African Police for DH Run

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.

[SWZ] Presents STX Skate

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).
