Adrenaline junkies are all about finding a new source for their natural high. Pushing the limits and trying to one up the person before them is just part of the their makeup. Records are constantly being set and then reset even just days later. I consider myself a pretty daring person. I like adventures and pushing my mental and physical limits, it really does make you feel alive. Zak Maytum though? Even in the realm of action sports this guy is doing stuff that is considered crazy. Zak is a professional and world champion downhill skateboarder from Boulder, Colorado. So yeah, you could say he lives for this stuff. This video takes what he does in his sport to a whole new level however. With a Mustang Cobra tailing him, he sets out down the road on his skateboard, eventually reaching speeds of up to 70 mph on this highway running through his hometown. I can’t imagine what I would think if I was a driver going the other way on the road and I saw this guy on a piece of wood with wheels going just as fast as me. The whole thing is filmed with camera attached to the trailer car. He definitely almost takes a couple of monster spills throughout the video, his gloves even shoot up sparks he is going so fast! You seriously won’t want to miss this incredible video of downhill skateboarding at it’s finest!

Such an epic run! I can’t imagine the adrenaline rush you would get from going that fast with nothing supporting you except a piece of wood and 4 wheels. I honestly don’t know if I would have the guts to attempt downhill long boarding like this. The friction from his gloves cause sparks to fly because he is going so fast. That is some serious speed his had going. He is going as fast as most speed limits on major highways. I would panic once I got above about 20 Mph and probably bail out, not this guy though. Adrenaline junkies, eat your heart out.
