This Vine Of A Dude Trying To Ride Two Skateboards Is Everything

We need to hear from you.
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Southern California is a blessed place where skateboarding is not just a way to while away adolescence, but a way of life and a legit mode of transportation for grown-ups. We salute this skater who wanted to test the theory that more is better: if one skateboard is awesome, why not try two? So there he goes in a parking lot in Highland Park (I'm guessing), seemingly oblivious to the fact that he's heading into oncoming traffic or the siren. It's kind of a graceless version of that Jean Claude Van Damme Volvo commercial.

The Vine was taken by skating photographer Brent O'Donnell whose work you can find here and here.
