Death Wishes: Skateboarder Bombing Hills In San Francisco

April 7, 2017


Because living isn't for everyone, this is a video compilation of skateboarder Sean Greene's best bombs down super-steep San Francisco sidewalks. He goes so fast he ollies over entire sidestreets from sidewalk to sidewalk. Plus has to speed-check a bunch (which personally detracted from the bombs for me but I guess he didn't want to die that bad) and crashes and burns a few times. But does that stop him? Nooooope. Would that stop me? Yes. As a matter of fact, I wouldn't even make out the front door without being stopped by my mom asking just where the hell do I think I'm going with that 'rollerboard.'

Keep going for the video while I unconsciously rub my arm where I broke it skateboarding.

Thanks to bozeman, who wants to see a unicycler do the same thing.

    This fucker has some balls

    i want to know why his friend keeps trashing skateboard when he goes past

  • xilef regnu

    ? Everyone worried about him getting hit. His friends are holding up traffic. Lame.

  • Doc Fresh

    He's a savage

  • Andyman7714

    See that trail of blood and bits of flesh going down that sidewalk? Yeah, that would be me.

  • Titty McNipplefondler

    This is why old people make skateboarding a crime!

    Because shit like this never happens, right? (disclaimer: dude doing exactly this, bombing down a street gets t-boned by a big white moving truck, goes flying 50 feet, shoes blown clean off... he did survive, with no "major" injuries, according to other media, but he very, very easily could've been paralyzed/brain damaged/killed).

  • captaindash

    I'm not sure where anybody implied there was no danger. I guess it's more fun to be outraged though.

  • Bling Nye

    I wasn't outraged in the least, I was more surprised anyone would do it in the first place given the very obvious risk, and the fact that getting hit by cross-traffic DOES happen as evidenced by the dude getting blasted by the truck... I guess it's more fun to make indignant comments 7 months after the fact though? ;)

    Seeing all the alleys and cross-streets this guy was blazing past, I was just really hoping there were people at those intersections to tell them to stop... because physics will fuck you up.

  • failquail

    There were. You can clearly see people holding up traffic on the roads in many of the clips.

  • TheQiwiMan

    Like, fuck that guy if he doesn't care about his own safety, but think of the people who hit him? The guy in the truck must feel horrible! What an ass hole selfish thing to do to another human being, just for a thrill.

  • Jenness

    I agree. This guy is a total loser asshole. There are other ways to showcase skill other than putting random innocent people in harm's way. Karma will have someone close to him swerve to miss him one day and they'll die - but knowing douche like this he'll vow to keep skating in prison to honor their memory or some bullshit.

  • captaindash

    That's a lot of anger for someone just wanting to skateboard. He was not in any danger from cars. That's what the spotters are for. I've bombed S.F. Hills. You don't do it totally blind, ffs. Obviously.

  • Jenness

    I don't believe you. I think he just did this and not a single fuck was given because it makes it easier to judge him harshly and complain. *does rockstar hands and sticks out her tongue all punk and shit*

    I know it's probably crazy difficult and dangerous, but the angle and composition make this look way more boring than it probably should be :-|

  • captaindash

    Yeah, it's awful filming. The best way to film crazy fast street bombs is to follow-film while doing "regular" speed where it looks like you're flying, only to have this guy come from behind and overtake you where it looks like you're standing still.

  • Spike

    Try it.

  • Forblat

    Try filming it?
