Kiwi pro-skater Richie Jackson may well be the most unique man in his sport. Not only does he dress like a time-traveling member of Grand Funk Railroad, he’s doing cartoon-like tricks such as jumping off his board, sliding the length of a picnic table, and then landing back on it. Other times he’s pulling off a weird rotating stall on top of rocks and turbine vents. Sometimes he’ll hop off his board entirely, hop on to a “Danger: Restricted Area” sign, and just skate on that for a bit. Wheels? Who needs ’em? If you’ve ever wanted to watch a man successfully skateboard on grass, this is your chance.
