Have You Seen This? Midair skateboard switcheroo

SKATE NATION Look, theres a lot of Christmas and Star Wars posts out there right now. If youre someone thats not me, you probably need a break from all that noise.

So for my Christmas gift to you, please partake of this jaw-dropping skateboard stunt video to cleanse your pallet. Trust me, according to no research or expertise, this little break will renew your holiday stamina.

Heres the scoop. Like many skateboarders, Mitchie Brusco and Italo Penarrubia seem to be all about pushing themselves to complete massive tricks as they practice their sport. In this particular instance, this means heading down a mega ramp and switching skateboards in midair as they fly over a mega gap.

I repeat, they smoothly switch boards midair while several dozen feet off the ground and they do not fall or crash or die like a normal person would be prone to do.

Theres nothing more that I can really say about it except that its 54 seconds of perfectly synchronized, delightful stunt goodness. Its just one of those things you have to see.

The video was posted in October but is currently garnering the attention it deserves.
