Longboard Skateboarders in Park

Were these guys hot! I thought California boys had the fancy stuff all locked up, but these guys were busting one move after the other. One of them skidded his board into a 360 and kept going. I didn’t know there was a downhill in Manhattan, but this was maybe a 500′ run, in a paved section in the park adjacent to Central Park West between 72nd and 74th. No cars.

They meet up through Meetup.com, Longboarding NYC here.
