Skateboarding/Soccer Trick Shot Video Ft. Bob Burnquist

From Soccer Bible:

Burnquist, a Brazilian native, created the viral video in conjunction with Nike owned skateboarding brand Hurley to help promote their “Phantom Brasil National Team” collection.  Placing a goal in various spots around his skatepark Burnquist shows obvious skateboarding prowess but also some impressive tekkers too.

I may be late to the party on this one but I had to share it anyway because this is awesome. Has anyone done a mashup of soccer and skateboarding before? The two seem like a natural pairing. Both involve balance and foot work and it’s not like you can’t be a soccer player if you skateboard. Plus I feel like the two sporting cultures have a lot of similarities, especially when it comes to clothing. However, I lacked the balance for skateboarding and played soccer all of my life so maybe being good at one doesn’t help you excel at the other.
