File this one under the “that just made my butthole pucker” category because this video will leave your palms sweating without a doubt. Tutone Skateboards rider Kyle Kay is following fellow insanely fast ripper and teammate Josh Young down a favorite mountain run down south when suddenly things go from a-okay to terribly f*cking wrong in an instant, leaving Josh on the pavement along with Kyle almost instantly after.
Both of these guys ended up being just fine and were extremely fortunate that some cuts and bruises were the worst of their injuries after an open road high speed crash without leathers. Kyle gives a great point of view account of what happens when you’re following close to someone else, and shows exactly why you should trust them and know their skating style, and that shit can happen even if you do know them well and are in control yourself.
We’ve posted some of these guys’ videos in the past, so make sure you go back and get yourself familiar if you haven’t already. In the words of their friend in the follow car, “You guys were f*cking mobbing. You were going 50 [mph].”
