Mischo Erban smashes world skateboard record

PanARMENIAN.Net - A Vernon man who considers himself a human race car zoomed down a Quebec road to shatter the Guinness world record for standing downhill skateboarding speed this week, clocking in at 129.94 km/h.

Mischo Erban, 28, became the fastest human in the world on a longboard Tuesday, June 19 when he beat the previous record by nearly 17 km/h.

Michael Emprick, the Guinness adjudicator on hand to oversee the attempt, described it as “an amazing demonstration of what the human body is capable of with dedication and hard work.

“What I’ll remember most about Mischo’s attempt isn’t just the incredible speed he was able to achieve, it was the sound of his skateboard wheels as it zoomed past.”

Born in Czechoslovakia in 1983, Erban grew up in the shadows of the Silver Star ski resort, but learned to longboard during his first year at the University of B.C., Star Phoenix reported.
