Chinese Skateaway

Hothouse Productions was the only European production company to be granted permission to film the skateboarder Danny Way in his attempt to jump over the Great Wall of China.

On July 9th 2005, the 31 year old Californian skate boarding pro leapt over the Great Wall of China on his skateboard. Way will be the first person to ever skate over this ancient landmark. Travelling at speeds of up to 55 mph he rode down a 65 foot high ramp and soared 70 feet over the wall landing safely on the other side!!!

This attempt saw Danny Way make his way into the Guinness World Records and Hothouse Productions was there to capture every moment of his glory.

Directed and presented by Nick Fellows “Chinese Skateaway” was featured on Channel 4 on the 4th September 2005 at 8.30 am. Other channels that also took this programming include ESPN USA , FOX Australia, Eurosport and the Extreme Channel.
