Gee, it's in Berkeley...quel surpris
Apparently these guys have figured out how to do their parents one better than never trusting anyone over 30, and intend to never BE anyone over 30.
Seems to me the craziest of these three is the guy wielding the camera.
If these guys were truly unconcerned about dying doing this, they wouldn't be wearing helmets. In their minds, though, an extended hospital stay is an acceptable risk. Obviously (going by the Che poster hanging on the wall at the beginning), they are in favor of socialized healthcare.
Wow, we didn't have boards that could do that when I was a kid. Looks like fun!
It's not just a Che poster: It's a framed Che poster.
They were always just ahead of me. I'll get them in the end.
The observations of the Che poster are hilarious. I had some admiration for him when I was younger because of his supposed tactical brilliance, but now that I know what a murderous f***er he was, nothing makes up for his Marxist idealism. Speaking of matters related to Bolivia, let's see those shredders take on this venue:
Foolish, but not as crazy as you might think. I'd be willing to venture that many bicyclists have run the same route at substantially higher speeds. And at substantially greater risk - laying down and rolling being much easier from a skateboard level crouch than from a cycle seat height.
Roughly judging their speed based on the flapping of the clothes and lack serious facial distortions I doubt they even went high very high into the 40 mph range, if that.
Your face distorts at closer to 100 than not; I'd guess more like 60 for these guys, and they're handing the camera back and forth between them. Looks like fun.
