People can definitely hurt themselves while riding around on the trendy little “hoverboards” you see everywhere these days, but we doubt anyone would consider them to be particularly dangerous devices. They don’t travel at very high speeds and if you fall off one, you’re likely looking at a tiny bruise or a sprain at worst. Of course, that assumes you’re riding around on the ground and not on the roof of a 656-foot-tall skyscraper.

Oleg Sherstyachenko, known on the internet as Oleg Cricket, is a daredevil who probably shouldn’t be alive at this point considering all of the crazy stunts he’s pulled. But he manages to narrowly escape death each and every time, and his latest stunt is easily one of his craziest yet.

Sherstyachenko climbed to the top of a 656-foot skyscraper for his latest feat, which is just another day at the office for him. Typically he poses for some photos on the edges once atop these terrifyingly tall buildings, but this time he was in the mood for something different.

So naturally, he hopped on a hoverboard to do 360-degree spins and even a handstand while positioned right next to the edge. The full video is embedded below — don’t look down.
