For those of you who are into skateboarding, you would want to know who holds the World Record for the Highest Ollie and the Biggest Ollie! Let me present you the guy who holds the World Records!
The Highest Ollie on a flat ground was done by Danny Wainwright from England. On February 6, 2000, he performed an ollie at the Reese Forbes Ollie Challenge at the ASR Show in Long Beach, California. His highest ollie official record stands at 44.5 inches. He is sponsored by Powell Skateboards and Vans. He started skating about 17 years ago. And he is the envy of every skateboarder, including me!
The Biggest Ollie record is held by Danny Way. He holds the world record for distance (24 meters / 79 feet) and unaided height (7.14 meters / 23.5 feet) while skateboarding. Danny Way was also the first person to leap the Great Wall of China and land successfully.
Danny Way cleared the biggest skateboarding structure ever built, The Beijing Mega Ramp™, and he went for 2 world records, speed on a skateboard and high air out of a ramp.
Although many people tried to jump the Great Wall of China before, Danny Way is reputed to be the first one to jump the Great Wall without motorized help.
Danny was also the only person to ever leap from a helicopter into a vertical ramp on a skateboard. To date, he has broken an amazing Six World Records! Among the feathers in his cap includes the world records for highest air out of a quarterpipe at 23-feet, 6-inches, and distance on a skateboard at 79-feet! Way to go Danny Way!!
