Remember this really fucking big gap Ryan Sheckler did that got the cover of the Skateboard Mag?
Me too. Shit is probably as big as the legendary Leap Of Faith. Well some RANDOM dude just hucks himself over the gap as “inspiration” for the other skater at the top. Must be a freerunner or whatever those annoying french dudes are called. Seriously. Of course he breaks his ankle. So good. Love the Rocky Music. Love the pure brainlessness of this guy. 5 Stars. Win.
