I’m not gonna say I’m an expert in skateboarding but I have been watching it for a very long time and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a part like Gosha Konyshev’s Zima part below.

Normally I imagine when it’s raining or snowing or there are any kind of adverse weather conditions, most skaters just go home to smoke weed or do whatever it is they enjoy doing in their spare time, but not Konyshev. Despite the fact it looks like Moscow was completely covered in snow and dodgy ice, he didn’t care one bit and went out there and busted some of the smoothest tricks that you’ll ever see:
Yeah, seriously impressive stuff and I’m not even sure how he even has the guts/skill to do most of it as you can’t really legislate for how the ice is going to affect your skateboarding, can you? I mean there are a couple of really nasty bails in that video but damn, there must have been so many more when he was filming this. And think about it – bones don’t break in that kind of weather, they shatter. Nuff respect.
