Hill Bombing has been around for as long as the skateboard. It might not be the most ‘legit’ skate thing to do (I mean you often need a longboard for starters) but let’s face it, who doesn’t love the sensation of speed?
That said, not everyone is as crazy as these nutters. Some of them are getting up to 70mph. And at that speed, it takes a special kind of crazy person to go toe-to-toe with traffic, face-to-face with pot holes and, in some special cases, head-to-road.
Of course, that makes for some pretty spectacular footage. Which is why we’ve scoured the internet for some A-grade footage of these speed freaks in action.
There’s no room for error either, as shown by these guys, which makes it all the more terrifying. Watch and learn.
