Maybe not newsworthy but 70mph still takes some seriously big cojones 8)

Strange road for a speed record! Mischo's place of choice makes more sence., just straight down. Same as P-Swiss slides at 100 kmph.

Pssst. Seismic bearings...

Wasn't Mischo's record beaten by Douglas Dalua at Teutonia?

I haven't kept up with speedboarding in the last couple of years though. maybe Mischo won it back.

Its been update to - Man hits 70 mph on Skateboard - he wasn't attempting a record.

Completely mad of you ask me, no pads or leathers just a helmet and slide gloves.
