The Signal Hill Speed Run movie Fundraiser Marcus Rietema. One time only showing of this downhill skateboard documentary. |
The Signal Hill Speed Run was the world's first downhill skateboard race. Racers competed for a prize that wouldn't even cover their medical expenses. 2013 Documentary, narrated by Ben Harper, 87 minutes.
The Signal Hill Speed Run was the birth of downhill skateboarding! From 1975 to 1978, it was an annual event, and was started by Jim O'Mahoney upon request by the show The Guinness Book of World Records, hosted by noted Brit David Frost. This event was covered by SkateBoarder, National Skateboard Review, Sports Illustrated, Sunset Magazine and many more!
Based on the 2008 Los Angeles Times' article "Board Out of Their Minds" by Mike Horelick, The Signal Hill Speed Run focuses on the annual skateboard race, but also explores many other aspects of 1970s extreme sports like hang gliding, big wave surfing, skateboarding and snowboarding.
