World Fastest Snowboard Towed By Commercial Plane

Worlds Fastest Snowboard

Jamie Barrow has become the first person to ever complete a snowboard run while being towed by a commercial aircraft at Engadin Airport in Switzerland.

The 22-year-old British snowboarder reached speeds of up to 125 km/h (78 mp/h) as he was dragged behind the PC12 aircraft near the resort of St Moritz. A rope was attached to the plane with a wooden handle at the other end for Jamie to hold on to.

Barrow broke two records in a day last year riding at the frozen lake in the Swiss ski resort of St Moritz at 80 km/h (50 mp/h) propelled by electric jet-engines, then being towed behind a car and hitting speeds of 113 km/h (70 mp/h).
