Downhill longboarding is so gnarly. Potholes in the road. Grass growing in all the wrong places. Steep, endless corners. Cole Trotta nailed this first descent (his claim, not ours, but it’s believable) and the camera work shows how technical the downhill is. Cole has to use those blown-out turns to control his speed, which is gnarly in itself. North Carolina is looking pretty beautiful this time of year and Cole just adds to the aesthetic.
