Street skating is often a bit of a balancing act. The moist desirable places to roll often require a slight bending of the law in order to hit. It’s part and parcel of skating. As such, so are overzealous security guards desperate to protect these sacred spots.
In all honesty, part of the buzz is the fact that these spots are out of bounds, off limits, and generally forbidden. And everybody that’s set foot on grip tape will know the feeling of having their spot shut down.
However, it’s rare a security guard will go quite as far as the mountain of a man in this video. Seriously, check him out. We’d call him a dick, but we’re worried he’d get on a flight to the UK and give us a good shoeing.
Some would say that, after catching a group of kids skating around a edges of a cricket ground, this dude was only doing his job in booting the guys out. However, things get brutal as the Shrek-a-like and the skaters reach the exit of the stadium.
The security guard appears to have enough of the skaters pleas to get his board back, and he loses the plot. He starts smashing the deck against the metal gate, barely avoiding cutting another skater in half, who’s already complied with his wished and exited the property.
Even if the skaters were trespassing, as the guard claimed, is smashing up a board and almost separating a kinds torso from his legs really a proportional response? It’s going to be a tough one to argue.
