Watch Skateboarder Shred A Downhill Run At 70 MPH

Fast and furious in flannel.

Skateboarder Zak Maytum is a picture of flying flannel as he barrels down a Colorado incline at speeds approaching 70 miles an hour, according to the YouTube description.

Maytum, of Boulder, appears to have a couple of scary moments on the run, and kicks up sparks as he scrapes his gloved hands against the pavement.

A trailing Mustang Cobra captured the daredevilry with a camera on the hood, Maytum wrote on Facebook.

The Guinness World Record for skateboard speed in a standing position is more than 80 mph incidentally. But that doesn't make this stunt look any less dangerous.
