No idea who it is, but I'm almost certain its a couple of pro skateboarders.. Ever watched some of their videos? This is every day life for most of them..
I was a "skater" growing up. We used to do crazy stuff on a much smaller scale. But I can see where this came from. You jump off of a little ramp. Fun. Then you build a bigger ramp. Then a bigger one. Pretty soon you're jumping 15 of your friends laying under the ramp trying to get arial shots. This is all in a day's work for a kid. We used to do downhill in England, at the age of 10 I was probably cooking along at 20-30mph down this long hill that was near our house. I had shoes with the soles melted off of them from stopping and turning. We even made hand sliders out of old trucks and spacers so we could lean way the hell out sliding corners without losing too much speed.
What I wouldn't give for the film out of those little 110 cameras during those days. I have no idea where it all went, but I have none of it.
Now think about that, multiplied day after day into adulthood. They aren't crazy. Ok, maybe a little.. But they are experienced adrenaline junkies who have obviously ridden that hill a million times in the past. I bet they did 10mph down it the first time and its just grown to this.
