Hill bombs are a long cherished staple within the skateboarding world. They test one’s abilities while also testing their commitment and determination. They can also end pretty disastrously.
While there are no shortage of legendary and insane hill bombs (as well as slam reels), most of them are fairly cut and dry: skateboarder goes really fast down a paved hill. But there are some other ways to go about it as well, and we came across 6 of the most bizarre hill bombs to take place.

Raven Tershy completely upped the ante with a board that had rollerskates for trucks. He proceeded to hit 43 mph on it as well.
