Imagine skating crowded freeways of Los Angeles, minus the traffic. That was the vision of Russell Houghten that brought to life “Urban Isolation,” a skateboarding video that takes out the people and cars of busy inner-city scenes. The video is installment 11 of REDirect, a celebration of skateboard filmmaking from Red.com and TheBerrics.com.

The video is rad and eerie all at once, showing a city always on the move turned abandoned with the exception of a lone skater.
