Saw this while reading the always great Cheap Seats Daily by Dave McKenna and I just had to post it here. Carpet slides? Lets take the fun of sliding on a hardwood floor and do it on carpets too! Holy hell. How in the world did these things make it to market? How many things can go wrong here? Rug burn, sprained ankles, broken legs and i’m sure something like this
If these can be on the market, might as well bring jarts back. I want my lawn darts!
That title pretty much sums it up. Looks like this kid is going to take a serious blow to his unhelmeted (not a word, but whatever, it fits) noggin, yet, miraculously, he lands ass on the board. Crisis averted, the dumb shall live to skate another day.
The thing that makes this video is that the guys who posted it just knew you were going to rewind it about 100 times…so they made it easy on you and did it themselves, saving you the hassle. Awesome faceplant and awesome editorial decision on the fine director of this video. Hats off to you sir. Oh yea, the guy looks to be ok after the faceplant but he looked pretty shook after it. Luckily, no blood and no blood, no foul I guess. Oh yea, the video isnt even the same as the pic above…that is just an awesome picture.
