Who knew Dan Humphrey was such a shredder??
Penn Badgley was recently spotted doing a bit of running around and grabbing a quick bite by himself at Mole restaurant in West Village!
But instead of walking like some average Joe, he decided to shake things up and dust off his old skateboard for a ride!
The former Gossip Girl actor finished off the skater look with a tank top, a pair of Vans, and of course a backwards cap to top it all off!
Too bad he JUST missed the X Games in El Lay, because he would have fit right in with the crowd! LOLz!

Just because you're a professional motorcycle and snowmobile racer doesn't mean that you can't revolutionize the world of prosthetics with an invention that will game-change the world of artificial joints! No biggie!
Mike Shultz has been in the X Games 11 times, but he has a special place in his heart for the lab! He has NO mechanical training and NO engineering background, but he has more motivation that anyone else! You see, he lost his left leg above the knee in December 2008 snowmobiling accident.
So he invented the Moto Knee and Versa Foot, to create a prosthetic leg for athletes to use in extreme sports — and it's blowing minds!
Here's what he said:

The wall trampoline is the craziest thing that will be going to the X Games!
What they do is they jump off a 15-foot wall, bounce off a trampoline, spin up the wall and strike a pose.
It's the most random sport out there but seems like a cool idea.
The whole thing is kinda a mix between
