Worst Slam Of The Season...
Posted by on Thursday, July 27, 2006
...and I wasn't even snowboarding - or skating for that matter. I was just riding to work and managed to send myself over the handle bars, skidding to a stop on the pavement, using my right arm as a brake. I also added a chunk out of my left hand, a slight sprain on the wrist and a beauty of a graze on my hip. Nice.
This happened yesterday. To make things worse, we had a skate session at Redcar planned that evening and I didn't want to miss it. So, against my better judgement I taped myself up, wore a long sleeve top and went skating...
I'm so glad I did! Wednesday night was an excellent session. To begin with we had the entire skate park to ourselves (8pm - 10pm) - free to use whatever we wanted, whenever. Awesome. On top of that, we all skated well. I got a couple of photos which seem pretty nice, and might make for a good banner on this website. We also took a few clips on the camera and as I've made some progression, I'm going to put something together. The obligatory slush puppy finshed a great night's skating.
It's the LG Action Sports Tour this weekend, so keep posted for a recap of the events. Is anyone else going to this?
damn!! my bud alex just took a slam like that but ended up with a broken collar bone.

Damn, a broken collar bone, that's bad luck. I suppose I escaped pretty well in comparison...
How's it going over there JP? You guys still got snow to ride on? From the last pics that I looked at on your site it seems like you guys are making the most of it!
