Snowboarding With Jet Engines Is Apparently Possible, Definitely Really Fast (VIDEO)

Olympic Snowboarder Jamie Barrow became known as "Britain's Fastest Snowboarder" after he set the world record for fastest speed on a snowboard towed by a vehicle. In his latest stunt, Barrow used electric jet engines to get moving at speeds greater than 80 KPH.

"It might sound a bit crazy to begin with, oh yeah, I'm going to be propelled along by electric jet engines," Barrow said. "But in reality, it's not as bad as it sounds. You're not going to take off and fly somewhere."
