Sometimes skateboarding and wildlife just don't mix.
Several Arkansas-based skateboarders were testing out some Fayettechill Clothing Company gear in an Ozark wilderness park when an unexpected visitor emerged from the woods during a high-speed downhill run.
According to the video description, the skateboarder hit about 40 mph when a deer leapt from the edge of the road, sweeping the rider off his board and sending him sliding on his belly several yards down the asphalt. The deer cartwheeled off to the other edge of the road stunned from the impact.
We all hear about car versus deer incidents, but this is the first time we've seen a skateboard versus deer collision.
According to the video poster the rider dusted himself off and headed back out for two more runs. Pretty gutsy we think!
