"On a rare occasion, you see a video that makes you stop - stop what you’re doing, stop what you’re thinking, even stop how you’re breathing - a video that masters your emotions and alters your vitals," the skateboard company wrote on YouTube. "At that moment, when your heart jumps into your throat, and your nerve endings fire, you realize you’re seeing something memorable."

"Wow, just wow," echoed another. "The views, the way it was shot, the fall, the speed. Wow, just wow."
