Zach Baca and Tommy Watson grew up around skateboards, but in recent years they've taken what was once a hobby into the world of serious competition. Downhill speedboarding sees riders reach speeds of up to 50 to 60 mph. Baca, Watson and a group of Utah friends train here for speedboard races throughout the country, enjoying the calm of carving down mountain roads on a piece of wood.
