Failure is an option

Had to take aspirin after watching that... :) But I love the ultra-slow motion falls. I also like the one where the guy with the camera riding shotgun next to the dude who falls makes sure to get the footage after he eats it at the bottom.

These guys know how to fall. Pretty sure not one of them really hurt himself. The power of experience ;-)

In the last issue of Monster Skateboard Magazine, someone wrote that as soon as you seriously start skateboarding, you automatically accept years full of pain! ;-)
Nonetheless, I still enjoy to ride my board!

Wow, good stuff.

I guess no one was badly hurt, but not for a lack of opportunity, but all of them looked like they know what to do with their limbs.

Oh wait, maybe there were an elbow and a couple of ankles that didn't appreciate the treatment.

If I show this to my 3 year old one, he would try to do the same just on purpose. I am sure.

It is amazing to see how well people manage to protect their heads, even when they are falling.

As most of my articles roll off the front page rather quickly, I am making an archive of previous posts available here. You can also use the handy search box at the top of the page if you are looking for something particular.
