This week Mischo Erban, aged 28, has broken the Guinness world record, for the fastest skateboard speed from a standing position, recording a speed of 129.94 km/h or 80.74 mph whilst skateboarding downhill.
As Mischo attempted the record breaking run he also recorded the whole event using a Recon Instruments custom built point-of-view camera with integrated heads-up-display. Allowing you to enjoy the ride from a first person perspective, watch the video after the jump to see Mischo Erban in action.
The record was previously held by , Douglas da Silva who set his record at the Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, on October 20, 2007, reaching 113 km/h or 70.21mph.
“Having Recon on board with me, breaking this record, it’s insane. When I first found out about Recon’s technology, I thought that somebody had read my mind. With their tech I have been able to eliminate any inaccuracies when training, racing and now, breaking records”.
