OHEF Productions Films a 170 ft stand up slide by Ryan Vanderveen on June 16th of 2012. The slide took 18 tries, this is the video that shows this exact event.
I hope that this video inspires people to go out and ride. Have fun, be with friends, enjoy the experience. Although these guys were watching Ryan attempt a world record, they were all having fun.
About a year later Ryan took his own life due to his depression. It is so important to keep your friends close and notice when they are acting differently. Talk to your friends, asking them about what is going on, force them to hang out with you even if you both just sit in the dark and do nothing all day. Introduce them to longboarding, if they don't know about it already. Help them win back getting enjoyment out of activity and have fun!
