Two daredevils have set a new world record – almost 300 meters below sea level.
During the X2 Festival in Volda, the two daredevils Ali Nas and Aldin Hodzic set a remarkable record.
The duo rolled faster than 100 kilometers per hour on longboards inside the deepest undersea tunnel in the world – the Eiksund tunnel between Hareidlandet and the main land at Sunnmøre. At its deepest, the tunnel lies 287 meters below the surface. At it’s steepest, the decline is eight per cent.
In the video, Ali and Aldin hold on to a moving car before they let go and roll past the vehicle. The suits and boards lit up in different colours makes it quite the sight.
The stunt is likely as dangerous as it looks, and the guys were probably pretty nervous. Underway, their heartrate was measured, and it peaks at 158 beats per minute according to the video.
The stunt was done with permission from the police and the Norwegian Public Roads Administration, and the tunnel was closed the whole time. Do not try this at home!

Summer’s coming, but the ski lifts don’t stop running. Soon you can experience the Hemsedal slopes on mountain carts.
