Northern Arizona University student films himself shredding down Arizona highway

Warning: This video definitely is not for the faint-hearted or for those who are afraid of heights.

Northern Arizona University student Dion Kris Heimink posted an exhilarating video to Facebook on March 21 of him shredding down State Route 89A.

For those who may not know, SR 89A is a 83.6 mile-long highway that runs up north from Prescott to Flagstaff, home of Northern Arizona University.

The highway is no joke — the majority of it is on the side of a mountain and Heimink was not playing around.

The nearly 5-minute-long video shows the exercise science student flying down the mountain at a high-rate of speed and doing some crazy tricks before pulling off on the side of a mountain.

Yikes.

Since it was posted, the video has been viewed and shared thousands of times.

We’re just glad he made it down alright.
