If you’re like me then going walking speed on a skateboard on a flat road is enough to make you think twice about broken hips and what not. So when i see okes going full tilt down a hill i just shake my head and wonder how much your balls must tingle. Well the new bench mark was recently set in the US when skateboarder Kyle Wester broke the world speed record and was clocked at a mindblowing 143.9 km/h recently.
On a skateboard. A plank with 4 wheels stuck on it.
Here’s the footage. Not very dramatic, but still.
And that guy who was clocked going down Kloof Nek in Cape Town and set off the 60km/h speed camera HERE thinks he was going fast.
