The Inertia

There are some people who’re just wired a little differently than others. Some people like to do things that could go very wrong, very fast, and some of those people like to do those things on a piece of wood with wheels.

That’s what the longboarders in the video above are into. Three thousand feet above sea level on a mountain pass in Slovenia is a road that is absolutely perfect for downhill. It’s a two-and-a-half-mile-long stretch of pavement with nearly 20 hairpins and enough grade to allow for speeds of up to 50-miles-per-hour: fast enough to get the heart of the bravest of daredevils pounding.
