Longboarding is getting more and more popular as everyone ditches the shorter, trickier skateboards in favour of achieving high speeds on mountain roads.

We don't know if that makes the wipe-outs more dangerous or less, but either way this video is totally bonkers. Bearing in mind they tend to fly downhill at around 40mph, you don't really want to see a car heading right for you if you fall off.

This lucky longboarder managed to walk away from that situation unscathed, probably thanks to his strong helmet and the driver's quick braking.

Just two weeks ago a US teen died after falling from his longboard without a helmet.
