sorry if you clicked on this seeking a gnar crash vid but its just a story that happend to me today
so today was a nice day in portland oregon me and my cousin pulled out the longboards to go shred the concrete wave. and it seemed that everything was all "hunky dorey" and we went up to this mellow to steep run by reed college in SE. its a nice run, good for a warm up for the season. so while we were skating to the run my front left wheel started squeeking. i thought nothing of it. as we were walking up woodstock and i notice that the axle to that wheel was getting hot. still i thought nothing of it. we skate on 39th to the start of the run and i sit to roll up a smoke. i notice a slight odor. and i STILL think nothing of it.. start the run and its awsome.. good turns, no traffic and then right after this steep section im carving it way hardcore, i make a heel side carve and when im going back toside the front wheel comes off and i slam and slide on the blacktop. i look up to se my wheel bouncing down the street. so i lay there for a couple seconds and my cousin chases down my wheel. lucky for me nothing is broken and i avoded hitting my head on the ground. i had road rash full length of my leg, rock in the palm of my hand, my elbow was almost to the bone( bloody as fuck) and my ankle bone bump was scraped up as all hell... upon inspection of my wheel. the bearings were fucked... one was complety sezed and the wheel had melted from the inside and the axle bolt had came off and led to my epic crash to day.... so in retrospective i needed to check my gear but thank fully the wheel is salvagable and i hopefully can use the trucks still.. at the same time walking back to my house.. i felt really fuckin alive... like i crash all the time on the snow... on the street.. not that much..
ps if my grammer sucked... i am truley sorry!
