Watch a Guy Speedboard through Traffic at 70 MPH in South Africa

Unlike autosport hill climb challenges where you’re trying to ascend to a peak as quickly as possible, longboard skating runs work in the opposite direction, but with a similar goal. With gravity, skill and some luck, a speedboarding exploit just might end up with a downhill Guinness Book certification.

It’s clear that skater Decio Lourenco wasn’t quite going for a new Mischo Erban-beating record, but this downhill jaunt is also much lighter on speed gear, safety equipment, sponsorships, or commissioned stretches of road to travel on. Moving at nearly 70 MPH (110 km/h) the 24-year-old South African longboarder may have avoided wobbling, but he managed to trip a traffic camera setup that’s intended for catching speeding cars. Although the stunt has garnered Lourenco attention at home and abroad, it has also raised the ire of local authorities who had a different take on the video.

[Editor’s note: Though we think this video is cool we completely understand why people fucking hate longboards.]
