Danny Way made skateboarding history on July 9, 2005, when he jumped over the Great Wall of China on his skateboard. The skateboarding daredevil became the first person to clear the massive wall without motorized aid. Danny Way is no stranger to skateboarding world records. Check out the records he holds and other amazing feats in skateboarding history.

Skateboarding Records - Danny Way

Danny Way holds the world record for longest distance jumped on a skateboard at 79 feet, which he set at the Big Air event at the [KWLINK 5179[b]2004 X Games. He also holds the record for height out of a ramp on a skateboard at 23.5 feet, which he set while flying of his newly designed Mega Ramp in 2003. When he jumped over the Great Wall of China, Danny broke the world skateboarding records for distance, height out of the quarter pipe and speed. Danny built a structure around 120 feet high, with a roll in of 75 feet. This massive ramp is likely the largest skate structure ever built.

Skateboarding Records - Fastest Speed on a Skateboard

Wearing an aerodynamic suit and helmet, Gary Hardwick made skateboarding history by reaching a speed of nearly 63 miles (100 km) per hour during a race at Fountain Hills, Arizona on September 26, 1998.

Skateboarding Records - Rocket-Powered Skateboard

Billy Copeland slapped eight jetpacks of fuel onto the back of his modified skateboard and blasted off at a record 70 miles (112 km) per hour on May 15, 1998. Billy's board didn't have any brakes when he made skateboarding history. He strapped a scrap of radial tire on to his running shoe and slammed his shoe down when he reached the end of his run.

Skateboarding Records - Most Mid-Air Skateboard Rotations

Besides making the coolest skateboard video games and pulling off the sickest skateboard tricks, Tony Hawk also holds one of the most amazing world records. Tony made skateboarding history by becoming the first skater to land a 900 at the 1999 X Games. That's two and a half rotations in mid-air!

Pats. The only way they would lose would be due to the deflated balls as an illegitimate way of getting to the Super Bowl. They wouldn't deserve to win in the eyes of some people. Maybe even the NFL. Besides that, the Patriots will take this win.  And lets be honest, nobody wants to see the Seahawks win two years in a row except for the fans that became fans once they saw that they were good. (Yes the shots have been fired.)

The highest I go is about the middle of the pitch :p :p :p So basically you play more of an attacking right midfield? That's interesting.  I'm guessing you play a 4-2-3-1 ? I play RM and LM. I'm a Box to box midifielder though. I rarely go through to the middle and I play wide.
