Skate tour gone horribly wrong.

Me and a couple friends decided to go on a skate tour of all of the skateparks in boise. We pack all of our gear into a van and drive around to different skateparks. We arrive at a skatepark and start skating. After awhile I go on the quarter pipe. I get warmed up and start hitting the extension of the quarter pipe which was 15' off the ground. About the 10th time I ride it and I fall off the top and hit the side of it on the way down. And plunge to the concrete. I got cuts and bruises and to top that off I broke my wrist and sprained my ankle. It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt. Plus it was the second time I broke my wrist this year skating.

15 foot quarter sounds like a vert wall... Yet another reason why BMXing is 10000x better than skating... Oh well, get better.

I said about 15 feet. It was pretty high if it wasn't 15 feet that it was atleast
10 -15.

I got my money on 10, after that a quarter pipe is like amazingly lame to hit, because it curves too slow.

Shoulda' got a bike, Linsky, I gotta vote for Fuxed on this one. I remember when I first started riding quarters/mini's/verts, went up, and came down without a ramp under me, so I nosedove into the ground. Another time, when I first started airing out, my back tire clipped the platform above the coping and I went over the bars face first into the tranny. Big big big crash. I'm not big on skating, Just because most skaters in the park I go to suck and lose their decks every 5 minutes so my lines are always fucked by flying decks. But I feel for you dude, but if you get back on your wood and drop in and do it again, your manhood has been proven.

Repped :thumbsup:

Thanks but, I wasn't skateboarding I was blading or what skateboarders call them "Fruitbooters". I heard biking is extremely hard on vert and halfpipes/ quarters. I have broken my left wrist, right wrist, 4 fingers, sprained my ankles plenty of times, and ripped a finger nail off all by blading. After awile you get used to it But, it still hurts like a bitch.

I would rep you but I am out of rep for the day.

Don't feel bad, I know how much it sucks having something broken and being "disabled" for a little while. I'm stuck at home with a broken neck right now.
