Fast Longboard Ride – level 2
On the Internet, someone uploaded a video which went viral. The video shows a 24-year-old man. He is riding a longboard skateboard down a hill in Colorado, USA. He skates at 112 kilometres per hour!
It looks like the man wears no helmet or padding in the video, but he does. It is hidden under his clothing so you cannot see it in the video.
The professional’s longboard was specially tuned for high speeds. He also wears a pair of special shoes.
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
