Watch Fearless Skateboarders Ollie Over Brooklyn's Skyline

New, 2 comments

Director Colin Reed spent over two years shooting skateboarders rolling, jumping, and ollie-ing across Brooklyn rooftops, and the result is this pretty cool video (h/t Gothamist). It took so long because apparently you can only careen around on rooftops in the winter—summertime heat makes those surfaces soft and saggy. Yeah, getting up to the roofs was technically illegal, but Reed and his crew made it work, sometimes by catching front doors before they closed as people entered their buildings. Not sketchy at all... but still pretty fun to watch.
