Calling the man a ninja, a user wrote that it looked like somebody rewinded the video. “It’s fake, at the moment where he gets up there are two shadows,” said another user.

A person said that the man is wearing an “Indonesian high school uniform.” Another netizen said the video is playing in reverse.

According to Times Now, this incident took place at a skating park where people enjoy performing stunts with their skateboards. People at such places are able to show their skills with skates or rollerblades.

Earlier in August, American skateboarder Tony Hawk posted a video of a girl landing a kickflip for the first time. The clip shows the girl screaming in excitement.

The video was initially shared by the girl, named Svetlana Yurchenko from Kiev, in July and did rounds on social media. It eventually reached Hawk, catching his attention, reported themoscowtimes.com.

“The silver lining of all this is seeing the excitement of newcomers on social media. It’s been uplifting to see them learning/relearning to skate during their plentiful “downtime”,” Hawk wrote, putting out the clip on Instagram.

The post is being shared widely for all the right reasons.
