VIDEO: Skateboarding Madman Clocks 70 MPH on Downhill Run

Downhill skateboarding madman Zak Maytum just completed one of the fastest runs in history. In the video above, he bombs down a back country road in his home state of Colorado.

Needless to say, the footage is absolutely mind-blowing and as terrifying as it sounds.

Clocking in around 70 miles per hour, he almost beat the world record, which is held by Mischo Erban.

The YouTube description reads:

With speeds approaching 70mph, and rough-ass pavement. Be ready to have your fuckin’ face melted.

Maytum wears a helmet and gloves for protection, but just one false move and this guy is toast. Just watch the impressive video and you’ll immediately understand why.
