In honor of Mother’s Day, some of Youtube’s premier skaters, Braille Skateboarding, decided to up their usual game of skate for an extra special video. Before beginning their skate game, they applied white gas to their board. Then they lit it on fire.
It took a little failure and extremely dangerous experimentation before the skaters came to the conclusion that the stunt would only work if the gas was on the bottom of the board. They initially soaked and lit the top, which lit up in a sea of flames too hot to stand on without melting shoes.
Once they had lost enough hair off the backs of their hands, the guys went on to practice a few flips. They became comfortable enough over time to ride and flip long enough to actually extinguish the flames. In the end, they wrecked their board, lit the concrete floor on fire, and got some great footage that catapulted them to Youtube’s trending list.
