Almost Out of Control March 18, 2012Posted by bibliosk8er in "downhill skateboarding", longboarding, skateboarding.
Took some downhill runs to day at Mt. Richardson with Chris Smith. BIG tailwind. Riding the Comet Voodoo, set up for tight turning slalom runs — not a great idea. As you can see, it was very fast today. About 30mph on this run — about 3/4 the way down I got speed wobbles, but stayed calm and centered and just rode it out. Some nice adrenalin. Sorry for the crazy view for the sky toward the end, but at that point I was concentrating on staying alive and uninjured.
