Skateboarding v.s. The MTA

Ever since we saw the original Zoo York crew sessioned the descending ramp connecting the A, C, & E to the L at 14th Street in the Mixtape credits, skating inside subway stations seemed like a lot of fun. (Perhaps even more fun than it actually was.) Then, Indoor Ten came around, and people started hucking themselves down that, risking a $100 summons, a board confiscation, and potentially getting your ass kicked by an angry Times Square cop stuck in a precinct with little to no action throughout the year, with Easter probably being the main exception. Subway skating hasn’t excelled much since, at least until this new clip for Slap by Colin Read, featuring Piro Sierra, Kenji Nakahira, Ryan Barlow, and Connor Kammerer. The fact that they left without a summons or a baton to the head is absolutely incredible.

Whether or not this will end up with 100K+ views like many of the other infamous MTA moments to make it on the internet this year remains to be seen, but it’s the best skate clip to go online in a long time.
