Motorist spots a man skiing through the streets of Maroubra in Sydney in the middle of summer

A motorist has spotted a man showcasing his skiing skills through the busy streets of Sydney in the heat of the day.

Trent Banfield captured the video on October 16 in the city's eastern beaches suburb of Maroubra, watching as the bizarre individual casually glided along in his roller-skis right next to passing vehicles.

'So I happened to see and drive past a guy roller-skiing on the streets of Sydney,' the motorist wrote.

'Well, that's one way to "send it" during the summer season.'

The video showed the man sporting a fluorescent yellow and black top and helmet with a light blue waist bag and green and white ski poles.

Mr Banfield filmed the man through the window of a vehicle as the skier sped downhill on the street using his ski poles for propulsion.

The ski enthusiast even obeyed all the traffic rules as he stopped at a set of red traffic lights.

The man used a technique commonly used in snow skiing to stop as he kept the roller skis parallel and adopted a wide stance while slightly bending his legs.

As Mr Banfield stopped his vehicle behind the man, the video showed wheels attached to the front and back of the skis.

The roller-skier quickly took off as the traffic lights changed to green and he turned left into a street heading straight for the beach.

Mr Banfield followed behind the man while he rolled along the street, bending his body up and down and thrusting the ski poles back and forth for balance and momentum.

The video concluded as the motorist overtook the fast roller-skier.

The footage has given Sydneysiders a laugh as many of them missed out on hitting the slopes this year due to Covid-19 restrictions and a four-month lockdown.
