A Virginia Beach police officer surprised onlookers when he put his skateboarding talent on display in an oceanfront parking lot on April 21.
In footage exclusively licensed with Storyful, the officer can be seen busting out flips while other skaters cheer him on.
Sergey Whitney, who filmed the footage, said the officer “wanted to try skating on my board to see if he still could as he hadn’t skated since he was younger.”
“None of us were expecting a policeman to know how to skateboard or to have his level of control and skill on a skateboard, especially considering it wasn’t even his skateboard,” Whitney told Storyful. “He was also carrying 20 to 40 pounds of gear which should have made it awkward to accomplish.” Credit: Sergey Whitney via Storyful
