that was definitely really gnarly but i still thank sean young and gerwer have done gnarlier hill bombs. i challenge frank to do go do it switch.

edit : think not thank  Wink don't spanly me.

I was just about to say, Gerwer could do that shit switch with his eyes closed. The hill he bombed in Destination Unknown had cracks and shit the whole way down.

I'm not downplaying this at all, it is fucking gnarly

But just because it's the steepest hill, does not make it the biggest or the gnarliest

so gnarly. i wonder if he tightened his trucks any beforehand.

i thought it might be cool to share the biggest hills we've bombed. heres mine from the bottom: https:[email protected],-86.244356,3a,75y,36.84h,82.88t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s6nA6Xsyyv4ps1Ohmv0GyTw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!6m1!1e1

i was on vacation with my family and my plan was to go to the skatepark while my parents went to the beach. the locals trashed the park the night before and left a bunch of beer cans and cups and a bunch of broken chairs at the park, so the city closed it for the day. this hill was across from the beach and i wasnt about to give up on skating, so i figured id skate it. its not very steep, just long so i thought it would be a casual cruise all the way down, but once i started i knew i was fucked. i got super low and carved as hard as i could to try to control my speed, but i had wobbles going almost the whole way down. i thought about bailing into some grass, but i knew if i jumped off, id be fucked so i just held on. at the bottom, i slid out onto my ass and shot my board into a parked car. i think i wouldve been fine had i worn jeans, but i was wearing basketball shorts and my legs and ass cheeks got shredded. worst part was that i had to walk 3/4 of the way back up to get my hat the flew off my head, then walk back down because i wasnt about to eat shit twice.

If we are telling hill bomb stories, I will share the scariest experience of my life. Don't mean to toot my own horn here, but I am pretty sure I survived one of the gnarlier hill bombs, and it was a total accident. I did Marin Street between Spruce St and Los Angeles St in Berkeley:

https://www.google.com/maps/place/University+of+California,[email protected],-122.2711072,377m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0xda8034ea3b6b3289

I wasn't super familiar with the area and was bombing down Spruce (which is really mellow) and turned down Marin thinking it was also fairly mellow. Once I realized I was on a road that cut down a mountain, it was too late - too fast to powerslide or jump off. I can say for certain I went past 45 mph because a cop gave me a speeding ticket for 45 and he clocked me before the end of the hill.

Actually made it to the bottom, which had a traffic circle. No way I was going to make the turn so I went straight into it. Flew laterally about 20 feet, slid 20 feet, and tumbled into the street and was almost ran over by a car. Luckily it was wet grass so I left a 10 inch divot in the ground and was just cut up by the grass, had a bloody nose, and minor whiplash. They have since put chains around the traffic circle - sure am glad they weren't there when it happened.

Check out this video I found:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKBWc-CoVpQ
I bombed :20 to 1:23

Thinking about the experience gives me anxiety, 10 years later.

Good Idea JB, Michigan is dope


Structure 7 (Tempe, AZ)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PljEK8L7zwk
(Sorry, only video I could find of the place was some longboarders)

It's a rollercoaster shaped garage where it goes straight, then down, straight, down, straight etc...
I bombed it from the 7th floor and ate shit on the way outta the garage because it doesn't lead anywhere. Shit's fun as hell though. I guess some biker died trying to go down it and fell out the side.

Same garage as this (0:18)

I used to bomb this one hill in SF on a fairly regular basis because it was in my neighborhood. It was fun because there was a curb cut at the top, and then a series of hills that went on for a pretty long while. It wasn't very death-defying at all, but you still picked up a lot of speed. Anyways, I always felt good because I could do it without powersliding, and then later I saw footage of Gerwer doing it switch.

I also used to have to bomb an extremely busy street to get to work that went through two intersections, and would give me wobbles almost every time. One day I made it to the bottom feeling a lot sketchier than normal, and when I picked up my board the hanger on my front truck just fell off.

Hoooly fuuuuck that was insane!

I just bombed my first hill of the year on my cruiser about a month ago. Usually there's enough headwind to make you able to do it so I just let loose and went for it. No fucking headwind were to be found and I started to wobble a little in the middle of the hill so I knew my only chance would be to brake with my foot. I tried but wobbled out and took a slam in full fucking speed.. I had never gone down that fast before and that scandinavia asphalt wasn't exactly smooth. I just tore my jeans to shit, fucking blood everywhere except for my dick and I couldn't sleep for 2 days because of the pain. Just watching this makes me shiver, goddamn hillbombs are gnarly.

slow day in the lab.

based on google earth, Frank has the steeper of the two drop ins at a 26.3% grade for approx 360 ft. Nuge's street has a 23.4% grade,  for about 405 ft. Anyone know physics well enough to compute (all things being equal, like wind, rolling resistance, ground surface, body weight, etc) what kind of speeds we're talking about at the bottom of the hill, like who would be going faster, given that one is steeper and one is longer?

also happenstance, you're looking at a 15.2% grade over 1735 ft. you're gnarly.

Recently took a class on vibrations and it occured to me that speed wobbles are actually a form of resonance. The skateboarder and skateboard form a system and when the oscillations approach the system's natural frequency the speed wobbles build up. A way to increase natural frequency is to increase the stiffness so that may be why tightening down your trucks helps to avoid speed wobbles. Neat stuff.

That was gnarly. However, do the power-slides at the top count? I mean, homeboy bombed the hill but it seems like he slowed into it. I definitely can't do that shit but all the footage I've seen and when I bombed hills in my younger years, you usually power-slide once you are done with the hill. Not hating, just wondering what people thought.

I did frame it and it has been on my wall for a decade! Unfortunately, I glanced at it for the first time in about 2 years and noticed that the sun bleached the pen completely off (it was the carbon copy page). Oh well, still have the terrifying memory.

It was a moving violation ticket and he wrote "skateboard" as the car make/model!

As a side note, the cop was a complete dick. I was basically in shock from the experience and the cop kept telling me that I was the biggest moron, dumbass, idiot, etc.. I told him I agreed and requested he quietly write my ticket. He would not stop. I said something along the lines that "you wouldn't say this to someone that caused a traffic accident in a car", and he paused for a moment and just kept ranting. He demanded an ambulance come see me to which I replied I was fine, but he 'detained' me and just kept ranting. This went on for about 15 minutes and when the ambulance showed up and heard the cop, they actually asked him to stop.

The cool news is I successfully fought the ticket because he gave me a moving violation that is reserved for automobiles and a skateboard didn't fit the definition of an automobile according to the California vehicle code.

also happenstance, you're looking at a 15.2% grade over 1735 ft. you're gnarly.
Ignoring the powerslides and assuming there is no other friction
mgh=1/2mvf^2-1/2mvo^2
Mass is the same throughout and initial velocity is zero so both can be taken out of the equation.
Final velocity would equal the square root of 2(gravity)(height)
26.3% grade is about 14.7 degrees
23.4% grade is about 13.2 degrees
Height=length of hill in the x axis times the tangent of the angle
Vf(Nuge)=sqrt(2(9.80m/s^2)(123m)tan13.2)=23.779m/s
Vf (Frank)=sqrt(2(9.80m/s^2)(110m)tan14.7)=23.783m/s
In miles per hour, Nuge's is 53.20mph, while Frank's is 53.21mph
