Watch a Pro Skater Grind Atop a Moving Mazda2
Many automakers claim their owners take part in active lifestyles. But brands like Subaru and Mazda seem to have that more youthful buyer demographic dialed in. The latter is maybe trying to underscore that with this new video. Ross McGouran has probably done the ollie-into-railgrind conversion plenty of times in his career as a professional skateboarder, but we’d sure like to know how many times that rail was connected to a moving car? In the video below, we see McGouran plan and set up the incredible trick, as well as the execution: RELATED: See images of the Mazda2 3dCarbon Concept
This video serves as a great reminder that at some point, skating becomes a sophisticated level of choreography. It also serves as a reminder to American buyers that we get an inferior version of Mazda’s smallest hatchback.

Currently, Mazda has no plans to bring the nimble Mazda2 to market, but we do get the very-good Mazda CX-3 crossover on which it is based. You can either be bummed at the lack of the newest Mazda2 or be in awe of McGouran’s performance. We’ll focus on the latter, but we’re still waiting for Mazda to announce a U.S. rollout for the automaker’s cutting-edge economy car.
