Martin Sweeney’s 1991 Slalom Skateboarding World Record

Martin Sweeney was the UK’s finest slalom racer and an exponent in tight slalom. In the early 1980s he could regularly be seen skating 4 foot courses at London’s Southbank and Hyde Park.


Sweeney is best remembered for setting the original, Guinness certified World 100 cone record at Brands Hatch in 1991. A record he held for many years to come. The record run was filmed as part of BBC TV’s Record Breakers series hosted by Roy Castle, as featured in the clip.
