Danny Way is one of those skateboarders that anybody should know. If you learned about the Great Wall of China in history class, you should also know that Danny Way 360'd over that... with a broken ankle. If you like vert riding, you should know he dominated the event in the 90s and early 2000s. He won the new X-games event, BIG AIR, in 2004, 2005, 2006 and took silver in 2008.
Danny Way would probably be considered one of the most fearless skateboarders of our time to have experimented and make known the dangerous thrills of megaramp or big air skating. Danny Way also holds the fastest land speed record on a skateboard, as if the tricks aspect wasn't enough to his repertoire. He holds the longest ramp to ramp jump at 79 feet and the highest air at 23.5 feet, how they measured that half I have no idea. he wouldn't stop there as he holds records for highest fast plant, highest christ air, and highest mctwist (probably to make it harder on any challengers). He holds the record of largest bomb drop, dropping into a ramp from a ledge, or in this case cliff, at 24 feet by dropping off the Hard Rock Guitar in 2006.
Several DC video parts of him completely rewrite skateboarding and what's possible on over sized ramps... that's a lot for a loving husband and father.
