longboarding is the surfing-skating hybrid sport of the future

“longdays” was shot for zero dollars a day out of one summer, navigating traffic in burlington, vermont (2003), and another taking on mill hill in lake placid, new york (2005.) frenetic, in-your-face video it is not, “longdays” captures the elegant essence of this surfing-skating hybrid sport. avid longboarder justin barrows discusses the emerging sport’s place among others like it, comparing the activity to alpine snowboarding and street luge. shot by tjb on one camera, long, uncut tracking shots reveal some of the nature of longboarding. bereft a second stationary camera, some idea of the high speeds was not achievable, but the carving and gliding aspects of the sport are documented well.
