Another Funny Electronic Longboarding Ride in Paris

It’s snowing in most of France… but not yet in Paris. We went for a sunny sunday winter session in Paris with the Pilotfly Gimbal. A new opportunity to share with you the short video (watch it 1080 – 60fps!) of this session and some RAW photos. I am not really used to do selfie filming…


Electric Longboards – Sunny Sunday Winter Ride in Paris
