Forget Sochi – Olympic Snowboarding in New-York City [video]

With unusually warm weather for the Winter Olympics in Sochi, what is a snowboarder supposed to do?  Hold Olympic Snowboarding right here in the US.

Well not exactly but this video of Casey Neistat, a filmmaker in New-York City, has taken advantage all of the snow in the Northeast has been slammed with by snowboarding.. in the NYC streets.

Three days ago, Neistat posted a video of himself snowboarding through the streets while holding onto a wake-board line connected to his Jeep Wrangler as a friend drove.  The video has gone viral hitting 4+ million views, but he stressed that it’s not a Jeep Advertisement but wouldn’t mind a new one if they were inclined to give him one.  (Yeah, Jeep, you probably should.)

Casey Neistat’s New-York City snowboarding antics are probably illegal but at least he was wearing a Yellow reflective suit.  Ironically we hope the weather gets colder and be more ideal for snow and ice in Sochi.  Hey, Maybe Neistat can make the next Winter Olympics.

I’m an ok snowboarder but i edited this movie to make me look much much better than i actually am.

also. THIS IS NOT A JEEP ADVERTISEMENT. I just really like my truck. But I would appreciate some sort of compensation, maybe another jeep, so if you read this jeep people just go ahead a deliver whatever your fanciest toughest jeep is to 368 Broadway #201 NYC 10013. also before delivery put a new proper bumper on the front and back and winch and a snorkel.
