A driver captured the moment a wild skateboarder sped across a dangerous road at high speed.
On Thursday night, a local Facebook group posted the video of the daredevil riding along Spit Road, Sydney’s wealthy north shore suburb of Mosman.
Davis, a resident, wrote alongside the video: “Anyone know this idiot who went down Spit Road riding a skateboard at 80 km/h… he almost killed me.”
The footage featured a man in a white t-shirt with short sleeves, grey shorts and a red helmet. He was also wearing black gloves and knee pads as he made his way along the busy road on his skateboard.
A skateboarder has been caught riding his dangerously dangerous skateboard on the main road of Mosman, a wealthy suburb of Sydney’s north shore.
The skateboarder was filmed by a vehicle that followed him and filmed him. He weaved between lane one and two while hurtling down the steep descent.
For balance and momentum, the skater remained on his board while he raced downhill along the straight stretch of road marked as a 60km/h zone.
As the speedster prepared to maintain his balance and make the final turn, the vehicle in the trail caught up to him.
The daredevil raced at a high speed through a set traffic lights.
Although the resident who posted the video seemed furious at the rider’s actions many residents praised the thrill-seeker for his amazing skating.
For balance and momentum, the skater remained on his board bent down as he raced downhill along the straight stretch of bendy road that was designated as a 60km/h zone.
One user joked that he was a hooligan.
Another user wrote, “Very impressive. It’s amazing. They should close Spit Road and hold a downhill race.
A third wrote, “He looked very experienced.”
Other members of the community thought that the rider was brave, but were concerned about what the consequences might be if he went so fast.
One user wrote, “I’d be petrified about him, although it is ballsy, but I’d hate for him to collide with anyone or something. Nobody wants to kill anyone on the road.”
He made it to the end of the windy road, and he quickly accelerated downhill to reach a set traffic lights that were thankfully green.
They added, “That being said, he has plenty to move,”
‘He would’ve been s**t outta luck if that light at the bottom was red,’ wrote another.
Another community member said: ‘So glad nobody pulled out of a drive or Pearl Bay Ave. And the lights at the bottom…’
A resident who lives near the main road responded: “Exactly! Because of the bikes speeding by, I am one of those houses. They can’t stop in time or move to my side by the time that I have backed out. It’s very risky!
Residents were quick to comment on the video, praising the thrill-seeker for his skillful riding. Others expressed concern about his safety.
