Watch These Insane Longboarders Cheat Death With This Wild Ride

These three speed demons are from Quebec, but they took to British Columbia to bomb down a stretch of road at speeds in excess of 100 kilometers per hour (according to the uploader), which equates to about 62 miles per hour. But you don’t need numbers to know these guys are hauling. Just look at the trees whip by. That speed makes their proximity to each other kind of terrifying, being that there are a few moments when they look damn close to running into each other. They’re not wearing the pads of a hockey goalie, so any wipeout at that speed would be truly gnarly.

Maybe the coolest thing about the skateboarders is the way they use their bodies to influence the air resistance around them to slow down for turns. But it does lead to moments where you may audibly gasp.
