mega push bail…

skateboarding is funny… it teaches/humbles you every time you hop on a board… whether it is your friends showing you a trick, you overcoming fear, or finding out how to deal with haters, you are constantly learning…

i have always respected the skateboard… it’s a treacherous invention… you lose your focus or stop thinking while you are on one for a split second, you will find yourself in pain on the ground…

my recent experience with this lesson was skating drunk at the end of the day… the rain started falling after a street filled saturday… we found shelter and a spot in a parking lot… we were just messing around grinding painted curbs… i was getting psyched on the session… i lost my composure and hit a crack… not knowing my board was no longer under my feet, i continued pushing… i quickly found myself flying through the air and sliding on the ground… my thigh and elbow were instantly destroyed…

it has been two weeks since the mega push bail… i am nowhere near healed up but i can skate…

i cannot help but reflect on this bail… pushing? you can get this hurt by pushing? we were skating some big spots that day with way more injury-potential… but pushing drunk takes me out… go figure… right?

never take your health for granted… always respect the skateboard…

peace and noLove…

    ska8ing is focus and if your not you’ll bail. I 420 but about 6 months ago I decided that I would not 420 while sk8ing especially on ramp and big bowl days. There is just to much going on falls happen all the time ( at least for me) I want to be a 100% percent when I am ska8n and falling especially when I’m falling. And lets get the word out that slamming your board or throwing it across the park because you failed a 20th time on a trick you’ve done in the past is not going to get that trick back any quicker. Just a thought.
