X-Games.

Danny Way just blew my mind.

He did this

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqq8wfZQnws

Went to the medical center since his shins are likely broken in half.

Doctor was like, "No way you can skate."
and Danny was like, "Where there's a will there's a Way."


and he came out a few minutes later and landed those tricks.


Also Jake Brown isn't dead yet, in fact, he's the leader in the big air competition right now.

This is nuts.

    Well no not definitely.

    But I don't see how they couldn't have been.

    Didn't look as bad as Jake Brown's huge fall he did that he ended up being just fine from.

    I could certainly see some injuries possibly occurring but to say that it's impossible for someone not to have broken a bone from a fall like that is stretching it.

    Brown wasn't fine after that, he walked away but he wasn't fine.

    I've been teaching myself at night for the last couple summers
    I'm not very good, but I still have fun
    And that's the important thing
    The day it stops being fun, I'll get rid of my board

    I was always awful at skateboarding. I mean I was really bad. But I grew up around people that were really into it, all my friends were, and hell if I didn't try. My brother and all of his friends skated, all my friends (who were the younger brothers of his friends) skated. I was just bad.

    I stick to playing EA's Skate now (which I haven't done in a good while)

    I was really good at grinding on shit with soap shoes, when I was like 13 years old.

    But that whole thing went out of style with everyone I knew about 10 years ago. I think they still sell those shoes though.

    When I was in middle school, my step brother and I built this bitchin ramp in our backyard. It was super awesome except that we lived in Florida and my step brother forgot to seal it so it quickly turned into a soggy, swollen mess. It was so depressing when our folks made us take it down.

    you need to kick out both legs at the right time and the right angle

    doing it five million times in a row helps

    kick down with the backfoot as you slide the front foot forward

    and try it four million more times

    Destroyed his shins in the video

    then came right back out a few minutes later and did the same tricks but landed them.

    then came out and messed up and slammed his head pretty hard on the ramp

    and then came out again and pulled off a really awesome looking varial 540 something other.

    Man you never know with skateboard injuries. You can walk away from the huge insane bails and fuck your shit up on a little bitchy fall.

    My brother came off the lip of a fun box on a 50-50 stall, tumbled slowly, awkwardly to the ground and broke his leg in like 6 places. Had to wear a cast for 7 months.

    Also i was watching x-games live like 10 years ago when a dude landed the first ever dirt bike back flip. Now every motherfucker does it. Seeing a double is pretty insane.

    I just don't go down them
    I pulled a manual off the ledge at the school tonight, dropped a foot and a half to the ground and kept going
    It felt rad as hell
