slammed hard on my ass trying back threes....
Was working on my scoop, so was practicing little b/s 180 scoops to build up to the three, and whipped out. 6'2" 220;bs straight down on to my ass. Ground shook. Bone still feels a little tender a week later. Might try a skate tongiht, dunno yet.

Most important thing is to get back up and back on the board. Well survive.

Currently chilling on a severely stiff/sore lower back from popping a chinese nollie off of a crack in the tiles at the local plaza when I first got there. I know I should always be stretching first but that was fucked up.

One time I fell on a slappy and landed on top of my keys which were in my pocket in just the right way for my keys to stab my leg and give me a hematoma (leg filled with blood on the inside and swelled up super huge).

Parking lot after riding the local park, just chatting with friends. I stand on my homie's board, not paying attention, and forgetting that he rode notoriously loose trucks. I pop a stationary ollie to manual, then my ankle folds like a cheap lawn chair. Board shoots out, I fall back onto my knee which lands "perfectly" on a rock on the pavement. I'm rolling in pain a la Peter Griffin while my friends are rolling in laughter... Ankle was twisted so I was out for a few weeks that summer. Fun times.

As many have noted, we always get got when we least expect it.

About ten years ago, I managed to break my ankle doing a kickflip bs 5050 on a ledge.

Last week I damn near broke my other ankle on a nollie inward heel on flat.

Can't wait to see what comes next.

Torn ligament on the inside of my ankle - rolled it on a flatground kickflip...

Landed too high up the nose and my front foot just folded off the front of the board. Must have done hundreds of kickflips this year, so it was pretty ironic that's what got me...or I suppose inevitable if you do enough of the same trick, either way it's deffo put paid to most of my skating progression for the rest of this year.

It's put me out for 8 weeks sofar, but rehab is going OK...started skating again a bit, but I think it'll be a few weeks before I fancy trying to land that first post-injury flip.

At the skate lite park by my house there is a bmx table top (two 4 ft quarter pipes with 6 ft of flat) in the middle of The two end ramps. I would only use it to pump for speed or manual tricks.

So, I drop in off the 6 ft roll in and my board is backwards. Fuck it, Iíll just do a nose manual across the deck.

I mistimed the nose manual and hung up in the front of the obstacle. Tripped. Tried to run out of it but didnít have enough room. Fell to the flat with my right fist under my stomach.

Long story short, I wound up in the hospital for 4 days with a partially ruptured spleen. Luckily I did not need surgery, but I was told not to move for 4 days while my spleen stopped bleeding.

1/4/2001:
Kickflip off a 3 stair. Landed with my back foot half off the board, tore tendons/ligaments etc. Was off my board for 4 months. 24 year old me

Fast forward to XMas last year. I did the same injury (not skating) by slipping out of a tree (was trying to get my sons friends ball out of it), and have only been able to skate recently since the end of 2019. 43 (and 44) year old me this time. Not healing as fast at all! Think I did that math right

Bombing a mild hill by my house. Looked at this brand new merc and next thing u know Im on the pavement.  Worst part wasnt the road rash it was the embarrassment that a random family saw the whole thing unfold.   


I mean he is kinda doing dog drugs so I fuck with it

I tried a varial heel on flat once and just landed on my feet not on the board and my back went out. I ended up getting a slipped disk and pinched nerve. I couldnít walk for a week, I had to crawl out of bed and crawl to the bathroom.
It was extremely difficult to wipe my own ass but luckily I still was able to manage to do so.
Iíve had back injuries like this a dozen times and itís almost always been from something small.
Iím a fat Siamese cat.

Back in August I was doing just a regular pop shove off a box and through some dumbass misfortune I slipped out onto my back, knocked the breath out of me, sprained my wrist, and threw my back out. Couldnt walk upright for weeks, had to go to the Chiro, and I'm still using icy hot. This is what getting older and skating does to you

I was skating this really steep pool for the first time, gave it a few tries but it was almost like a wall. On the last try I took off my front foot to walk away, but I step on some water, sliding with both feet. My deck hit the side of the pool but never got up, it stuck between the floor and the side, also my back foot stuck in the grip tape. Ended up hitting full speed my whole weight in my back foot, basically my ass touching my heel while also the toes hitting the shin. I must have destroyed every little internal ankle ligament because I couldn't put any weight, I wanted to cry while getting out of the pool.

Only got x-rays so never know what really happened with it, got 6 weeks with a boot, 3 weeks after the injury my dad needed help so I took the boot of, limped 1 week but started working again. Took almost a year to skate again, never really recovered. Lost everything switch/nollie.

I slipped out when practicing slappy fs nose grinds on a curved curb and split my eyebrow open on the curb and chipped a bunch of my teeth.

When I was drinking really heavily I was day drunk and skating to the local shop, when I went to pop up onto the curb in front of the shop I hit something when I landed, my board flew back wards and got ran over in traffic and I ended smashing my back into a planter in front of the shop.

Also a couple years back I was skating once there was snow on the ground and saw a patch of ice and thought it would be a good idea to try to power slide across the ice, I slipped back halfway through and hit my head on the ice.
