Extremw Skateboarding down Kloof Neck road, Cape Town nice views, but looks rather dangerous.

I drive this road every day. Guy is an idiot. The reason the camera is there - and that it is yellow (visible, to get people to slow down rather than to try sneakily trap them) is because that bend is a high accident zone. Of course, loads of the social network comments think the guy is "cool".

Is he crazy or is he cool - that's not a debate I want to get involved in. In my opinion this guy has some serious skateboard riding talent. The way he "brakes" is unbelievable and how he stays on the board at those speeds I find incredible. I was a keen boarder in my youth but I would never even dream of being able to do what he does.

Eish!! Good news for the longboarder he will not be charged. They will just get a speeding ticket for the car going over the speed limit.

update : looks like the City of Cape Town may still prosecute

i would love to follow this story to see what the outcome is going to be. They are spending so much time and resources prosecuting this guy while they could be chasing real criminals - but then again, that would be too hard.
