These Downhill Skateboarding Crashes Are Absolutely Terrifying

Serious downhill longboard skaters are a breed of their own. The only thing separating them from serious roadrash is a helmet, gloves, and a racing suit. And the guys who tackle the [Urban Descent downhill event][1] in South Africa are some of the craziest skaters in the world. At this year’s event there were two vicious slams, involving Jed Kenny and Stephen Hayes. These almost make [falling off a roof][2] seem not so bad. Almost.

You fall in love with it before you get good. I don’t know any guys that skated in the ’70s that don’t constantly think about it whether they’re involved or do it at all or care about it. They haven’t touched a skateboard in 20 years and they’re like ‘I’m a skateboarder.’

—Lance Mountain hits the nail on the head in part 5 of Eric Dressen’s Epicly Later’d . It’s true of folks in the ’80s as well. I have plenty of friends who haven’t been on a board in years but still keep one in the trunk of their cars.

It’s super easy to label Alex Knost as the “hipster surfer” but none of that takes away from the copious amounts of style the guy has on a board.

"That’s important…to be tasteful."

It’s also kind of funny to note that while this commercial before the launch of ESPN the Magazine was supposed to be a spoof, this is exactly what the magazine ended up doing with its Bodies issue.

I’ve always been impressed and wondered how these guys at Colossal Media do what they do
