SKATELINE – Danny Way and Greyson Fletcher

“Greyson Fletcher is now pro people. He’s getting paid by Element so that means he’s getting rapped out with his crack out. He could probably afford some droors, but probably still won’t buy none.” – Skateline

World Record Highest Air By Danny Way

Danny Way has done it again – this time breaking his old record of the highest air ever done on a skateboard.

Danny Way and the HIGHEST AIR EVER
In the Cuyamaca Mountains above San Diego California DC shoes and Monster Energy built the largest quarter pipe in history. On July 18th, 2015 Danny Way set out to break the current highest air record – a record he set June 12th, 2003 at 23.5 feet. The new official record is 25.5 feet.

Still waiting to here back from Grant Brittain (skate photog legend), but we happened to notice Danny landing back onto the white platform as to landing back onto the ramp (below the coping). Our question to Grant; “Is it somewhat “cheating or playing it safe” when Danny doesn’t land back onto the ramp, but he lands on an extension of the ramp (the white thing)?”

When a skater does an air the air is measured from the coping to where the skater is – so in Danny’s case they took the measurement from the main ramp and not from the top of the coping of the white box in which he landed on.

“I thought it cool to share what I’m doing to prepare myself as I get ready to take the biggest physical risk of my career. This is one of many obscure exercises that I do within my training regiment. Anyways just a little insight to what I do to keep myself on top of my physical game @dcshoes @monsterenergy #worldrecordair #ultramegaramp.” – Danny Way (February 25, 2015)

If your Danny Way (professional skateboarder) and your hashtagging #worldrecordair and #ultramegaramp you know something serious is going to go down!
