Ah, the Bonneville Salt flats. One of the last true bastions of speed left in America, where men and women take cars, trucks, motorcycles and just about anything else with wheels to the very limits of man and machine's capabilities.

Of course, there's no rule that the salt flats are to be used only for wheeled objects. As demonstrated in the video after the break, it's quite possible to hit the salt using something a bit more... simple. Like, say, a snowboard. Or, in this case, a saltboard.

True, snowboards usually see use on the snow, as their name implies. And while salt is more often used to melt said snow, in this case, it acts more like heavy grit sandpaper. We bet it hurts a bit worse than snow if you happen to fall. And fall they do. Here's hoping they managed to keep salt out of their wounds... but we doubt it.

It's worth mentioning that this is the same group of crazys that took adult-size trikes up to speeds of 55 miles per hour down a massive hill. Apparently, utter disregard for life and limb appears to be a prerequisite to make an appearance in one of Devin Graham's videos. Check out the group's saltboarding heroics after the break.

      Wrecking while doing this is like adding salt to a wound...

      Mmm yeah. Salt is going to feel great in those scrapes.

      I could see how this could be a little interesting if the salt was deep enough for them to carve - but it is not. So this is not interesting - just a guy getting dragged around by a quad.......on a snowboard......

        The salt flats are all about speed. The salt may not go deep but it is super flat and consistent. You could never get up to those kinds of speeds on normal ground.

          Do you get made fun of daily because you're named after a former football star and failed movie actor? lol

      I am interested in doing this! How do I go about that? I obviously need a blank board and avoid my snowboard...

      Cool - not amazing but definitely cool. I bet we ALL agree - we wish the salt flats where near us. - The things we would come up with you be similar to this.
