Falling Down
« on: October 04, 2021, 10:02:26 PM »
I took maybe the best fall of my life a couple days ago. Bombed a short, steep hill straight out the gate, feeling good about the day ahead. I was totally relaxed pushing into it and hit the bottom going bout 40 km/h (25 miles/h). Caught a wobble and knew immediately I couldn't recover, so I stepped off the front. Got both feet down somehow, though they were immediately ripped out from under me which whiplashed my hip into the ground so hard I bounced up into a sideflip, spinning like a ragdoll, and landed on my feet facing downhill. I kind of stuttered 2 more steps and stopped, still standing. My board just kind of rolled up to the back of my leg and I was left standing in the street trying to process what had just happened. Some extremely lucky shit. I have a big circle of crust on my hip but it didn't even swell and i skated the rest of the day.
