But ive gone 39mph on my old hummie build.
I’ve topped out other people’s boards but no idea how fast that was. ( @DerelictRobot )

Do you have downhill videos of you? I always think this guys are aliens… Really impressed by the skills and balls needed. Looks like you can take off at the first little stones you encounter :grin:

As long as you’re confident in your ability to make it down the hill, have proper stance, and have enough balls, pebbles are nothing :wink:

My buddy might still have some of us fucking around but not much fulll speed stuff.

But I’ve never been big on taking pictures let alone video of my life lol.

Its definitely been a few years since I pushed my downhill ridding like that. The hills in this town suck. Only thing I miss about Portland. ( except @SeanHacker )

For real. I’ve hit branches lol. At those speeds with good wheels most stuff gets tossed put of the way. Unless you hit a box lol

Yea i’ve noticed that at those speeds i can feel the little bumps and cracks but never really knocked off my board or begin to wobble. I guess its just the characteristics of such high speeds

i just built a board that can jump into hyperspace. GPS doesn’t work there, neither do CMOS sensors… soooo… you’ll just have to believe me when i say FTL on belts is so 2018.
