Extreme Longboard Racer Performs Scary 70 Mph Highway Ride





The following video by Colorado-based longboard racer Zak Maytum definitely had me at the edge of my chair. The entertainment level is really high but at the same time, I couldn’t help but feel a bit worried about this safety.

Besides, the footage shows him riding his longboard in full speed while in the Boulder highway. What makes this interesting though is that he was speeding at about 70 miles per hour when the allowed limit on the highway was only 30 miles per hour.

And oh! Zak did the stunt wearing nothing but a flannel shirt, a pair of jeans, some gloves, and what appears to be a cap. It’s impressive but really scary. You’d think this guy had a death wish or something!

At first, you’d assume he was merely traversing through an open highway but as you saw on the video, some vehicles were actually there. Also noteworthy is that at several points, he touched the road with his gloves and sparks flew around, indicating that yes, this isn’t a fake footage. Eventually, old school Metallica hit “The Four Horsemen” was added to the video, giving it a very badass vibe.

The video was uploaded on YouTube just last September 7, 2015 by venombushinngs. In just 10 days, it already attracted 2.6 million views. However, many took notice of Zak’s lack of safety equipments.

“Too cool for helmet huh?”

While Eosz Kappa commented:

“I dont think this helmet will protect you in any way if you fall from that thing at 70 mph…”
