Jumping Over the Wall of China?!
Courtesy of Thrasher Magazine:
Danny Way is a skateboarding legend, X Games Gold Medalist, “Skater of the Year" award winner and is well known for attempting extreme stunts and chasing unimaginable records. He’s known for helping invent the mega ramp, performing the first “El Camino” (rocket grab back-flip), setting the “Biggest Air” record (18 feet above a mega ramp) as well as being the first skateboarder to drop from a helicopter onto a ramp, to name a few of his accomplishments.
He took a step back from the spotlight for a few years but ultimately decided he wasn’t done with chasing the impossible and adding to his resume. This time, he had his eyes set on setting the record for farthest and highest jump on a skateboard. What did he have in mind? May wanted to go to China and set the record by jumping over the Great Wall of China. Yes, you read that right. If May was able to clear the wall, he would break both existing world records, farthest jump (79 feet) and highest jump (23 feet) on a skateboard.
Every great feat always comes after failure or a setback and this time was no different. The day before his attempt at making history, May was out doing a practice run and on one of his attempts, he launched off the ramp and immediately lost control of his skateboard and landed awkwardly on the ramp and could barely walk. Like any true juggernaut, he wouldn’t give up on what he was chasing, no matter the circumstances. He even refused an X-ray on his ankle, instead opting to tape his ankle up and continue going.
He was ready, the big day was here, ankle taped up, adrenaline flowing and his eyes on the prize. May nailed it, made it look easy and after with emotions flowing, started performing 360s and the crowd was loving every second of it and going crazy with screams and applause. No matter what life throws at you, its your decision how you react and respond.
Never stop chasing the impossible and always keep going until you BECOME UNSTOPPABLE!
