This guy just obliterated the world record for fastest downhill skateboard speed
Skateboarder Kyle Wester is an unhinged lunatic—and maybe the world’s most daring skateboarder.
Wester wooshed downhill at 89 miles per hour on Aug. 29, breaking Erik Lundberg’s 81.17 mph Guinness World Record. (This remains unofficial, as Guinness has yet to update its numbers as of this writing.)
Here he is in his blaze of glory:
“Holy shit,” his friend said upon clocking Wester’s run.
“That’s what I’m talking about,” Wester said, flabbergasted at the result.
Kids, don’t try this at home. (I’m serious. Don’t make me call your mother.)
