It may have never crossed your mind, but what if you could ride your camera bag around town? What if, instead of carrying it, it carried you at up to 15mph for up to 9 miles, maybe even charging some of your small devices as you went?

Last month, we featured the life and work of Arto Saari, a legendary professional skateboarder who has turned into quite the skateboarding photographer in recent years.
There’s just something about skateboarding that attracts photographers and videographers. Whether they’re traveling the world photographing crazy tricks in exotic places, or shooting 1000 fps footage of tricks that haven’t even been named, camera junkies are always finding new and interesting ways to capture the sport.
Sebastian Linda‘s newest video does just that. By using high-speed cameras, some creative camera movements and colored powder, he’s managed to create a magical skateboarding world through the lens of his camera. Read more…
When it comes to great light painting photography, we’ve had cause to mention Darren Pearson on more than one occasion. His dinosaur light paintings were well-received, and his skeleton skater light painting animation was just plain cool.

Starting off Sunday on a slow motion note, this is just a downright cool 1000fps video of skateboarders doing some pretty crazy flat ground tricks (tricks so crazy many of them don’t even have established names). The video was shot using a Redlake N3 high speed camera, and the footage… well that speaks for itself.
Here’s a skateboarding video by Joe Pease that shows a creative point of view, riding along with the shadow rather than the skateboarder.
Eli Stonberg created this creative video by recording skateboarder Aryeh Kraus with seven separate cameras, with six of them on Kraus or the skateboard. When they’re all viewed at the same time it’s a pretty unique visual experience. Like the splitscreen short film we shared yesterday, hopefully this one will give you a healthy dose of inspiration.
