I bailed into a chain link fence on campus today after being cut off by a guy on a bike. Nothing to bad since my hands took most of the damage but it made me wonder what kind of other crazy accidents people have had. I really can't stand people that don't respect longboarders.
mine wasnt crazy but unexpected. was cruising on a pavement, infront was a 90deg sharp turn so i thought of taking a shortcut over the grass patch. apparently there’s a hole in the grass patch. flew off my board. thankfully i had my helmet on. right beside where i flew off is a railing.
I fucking love the fact that you promote helmet safety. Most people don't even realize that ten seconds on a board without a helmet could change your and everyone else's lives around you. Lost my best friend four months ago in a longboarding accident at age sixteen... It was a gnarly concrete drainage ditch that we skated all the time, I do admit it was a bit extreme but If he'd have worn a helmet he would've been saved.

a cold shower after a productive night of longboarding.
after two day straight of down right freeriding, today i decided to do some dancing / tricks during the wee hours on my bhangra.
and since we are on the topic of helmet, from the moment i step out of my house i had my helmet on. im so used to wearing a helmet that i entered McDonalds without realising i have my helmet on till my friend told me that i still had it on. haha.
i'm so glad you require helmets in pictures. about 7 months ago, i was stupidly not wearing a helmet and skating outside of my comfort zone and ended up with feet of road rash, a severe concussion and numerous stitches. don't be stupid, wear a helmet!
If there are any boarders from Salt Lake City, UT out there; my friend and I just started this group and we are trying to make it into a real SLC group. We are the Salty Longboaring Coalition, look us up on facebook and post on there or to me or email us (email on the facebook page) for any info.
longboarders from Salt Lake City, UT. hit them up. its always fun skating with friends rather than alone.
