Didn't wanna bury this in sports..
Jesus is that guy part cat?
Holy shit. I knew what was coming from the story and still cringed when I saw it. He was damn lucky to wack away from that one.
I'm amazed he walked away from that clusterfuck.
I love the flailing legs. Feets don't fail me now!
As soon as I saw him kicking in the air... I thought of this:
OMG HE LOST HIS SHOES (sol rosenberg voice)
Im fucking laughing so fucking hard. Jesus christ its funny cause he walked away but the effort to get there
I have to leave this thread and never come back i got frugals sound in the background and im fucking crying literally
A bar I was in last night had the X-Games on and saw it happen live. The entire bar pulled a whoa after they showed the crash in Slo-mo...
The last angle is the best - you can really see the impact and how he bounces. He is one lucky bastard.
wow. it almost looked animated
The hamster in a wheel w/o the wheel move was priceless. I loffed so hard that the person next to me in the airport bar gave me a dirty look. That'll teach him to buy Acme skateboards.
that shit sucks. he had to have had a concussion or internal blleding or something. that is one of the sickest crashes i have ever seen. ive been launched in the middle of an 8' halfpipe on my fruit boots before. i was done that day
45 feet is just an insane height to fall from and still be ok.
I watched that live last night, and Scott Murray tried a double back flip on a Moto Cross bike, with similar results. Upon landing, the throttle stuck wide open and the bike almost took him out again. He was unable to complete his second run because he fucked up his shoulder and his bike.

Just a matter of time before one of these guys gets paralyzed or dies....I'm guess before this weekend is over.
Holy shit. How he walked away from that, I'll never understand.
Me either. A fall from a four story building onto concrete is only marginally survivable, and guaranteed to fuck you up. That board surface was probably pretty springy, so that and a lot of luck helped.
It almost seemed like he knew how he needed to land, and was trying to get into a specific position. Guess it worked.
Still, quick rough math, it's a 50 or so MPH hit.
"WOOHOO X-GAMES!!!! I ROCK!!!!"
Was that his response immediately following? Isn't that what makes the x-games fun to watch?
That gravity's a bitch
Shoes popping off was fucked....you always hear about in car accidents people getting literally knocked out of their shoes...that was basically the same thing
was that Joe Rogan I heard in the background???
Holy shit-- you evuh see a paira shoes come apart like dat?
Nope. Tony Hawk and some other Douche.
I saw that shit on the local news broadcast last night. . . WOW!:icon_eek:
I caught some of the X-Games stuff last night and they showed it again...seeing it on a big TV screen really makes your guts twist.
Weirdest shit ever. I had a car wreck when I was 16. A pair of fully laced and tied high tops got knocked off my feet. Didn't even come untied. I have no idea how the hell it happened.
That dude is lucky to be alive, let alone walking away fairly unharmed.
