An old friend of ours, Jojo Martinez, was recently able to have some wind tunnel time in Geneva.
Time in a wind-tunnel has got be be pretty high on most downhill skateboarder’s wish-lists… a perfect moment to perfect your racing tuck or try some crazy new stuff and find out scientifically if it actually makes a difference! Experienced racers can really make a difference to their top speed by perfecting their tuck, and what better place to experiment than under controlled conditions like this.
Watch what happens when he gets to 200kph…
