A Canadian daredevil set a new world record for the fastest speed on an electric skateboard. 

According to Guinness World Records, Mischo Erban, 32, hit a speed of 59.55 mph on a modified long board. 

“I am attracted by speed – and have learned to master the danger," Erban said after confirmation of the record. 

Erban, a downhill skateboarder, has previously landed in the record books, setting a world record for downhill speed skating back in 2012. 

“Guinness World Records helps drive innovation and individuality," Erban said. "And I like setting new directions and achieving.”
