Man dies in Southsea 'landsurfing' accident
A 26-year-old man has died after hitting a concrete post while "landsurfing" - a new form of skateboarding.
The man, who was Lithuanian, was taking part in the craze in the car park of the D-Day Museum at Southsea, Portsmouth, on Sunday evening.
Landsurfing involves using a longer than normal skateboard, similar to a surfboard, which the user often has their feet strapped to, making it difficult to jump off.
A Hampshire police spokesman said: "A 26-year-old man has died following an incident in the car park of the D-Day Museum at Clarence Esplanade, Southsea.
"The Lithuanian man, who had been living in Oliver Road, Southsea, was skateboarding with two friends in the car park at around 6pm when he collided with a post and sustained severe head injuries.
"He was airlifted to Southampton General Hospital and transferred to the neurological unit where he died last night, his friends and family at his side."
