Professional boarder Louie Lopez was caught on camera on London's South Bank when he jumped out of the skatepark and into the public walkway.

He lands the board skillfully, before expertly taking the bystander's half-drunk beer before riding away and having a quick sip.

The man was clearly shocked - although it is not clear if he was in on the gag or not.
