Skateboarding Wee Jasper style

By johnboy - 29 October 2012 19

The magic of YouTube brings us this gem of high speed on road skateboarding posted by jumpninja001 with this note:

Raw run down a favourite hill near Canberra with the C.D.D.H. crew.

Anyone recognise the bit of road?

…to have high speed B Double trucks stopped from using Wee Jasper Road…

High speed B Double Trucks? Really?

howaka said :

There are Council signs prohibiting this activity at the top and bottom of this section of bends.

Really? Haven’t been along there for a while. While I agree that coming ’round a corner to find one of the guys on your side of the road would be upsetting, I would rather that then some local in a landcruiser on my side of the road… and that also happens a little more frequently then I would prefer.

Heavy maybe but not high speed. I would be interesded to see where a B double would be heading through WJ. If it was a logging truck from out near Tumut would be 19m long anyway, which is no different to a normal semi…

The residents of Wee Jasper and Mullion have just spent months petitioning Council, the RTA and the NSW police to have high speed B Double trucks stopped from using Wee Jasper Road – why? Because it is an extremely dangerous road and in very poor condition.

We thought we’d seen the last of these clowns too! This is a truly ridiculous activity that is nothing short of suicidal. The section of road in this video includes numerous blind corners and potholes and in some spots there are drops of over 100m on the outside corners.

We all appreciate the need for a bit of adrenalin but when you come around the corner with a car full of kids and one of these morons in heading towards you on your side of the road… that’s just crazy. Find somewhere else, find somewhere that is safer to the public. We don’t care what you do to yourselves but don’t endanger our lives as well!!!

(The other danger is the idiots filming these events who dart backwards and forwards across the road, I nearly took out two on two separate occasions in two separate locations)

I’ve never seen anything bigger than a cement mixer on the Wee Jasper Rd past Cavan station.

Looks like a lot of fun, but surely one bad pothole and it would be curtains? The wheels don’t look much bigger than usual skateboard wheels so I’d imagine could get stuck in a hole pretty easy! Anyways gutsy stuff! Great vid.

Just like some of the motorbike riders I see in Canberra wearing shorts and thongs, I worry that these guys are going to come off and lose a lot of skin.

Someone is wearing leather…

Not sure if trolling or stupid.

A little from Column A and a little from Column B.

Not to mention being on the wrong side of the road – but they’re not wearing lycra so that makes it alright.

This is the corner in the video still above. It is on this bit of road, as Keijidosha said.

The idea of those pot holes on a board scares me a little, but it is a great bit of road.

Wee Jasper road (running West to East) at the Cavan end.
