been there. thats the kinda bail that right before someone goes "hell that ain't that bigg." mine was a 24 set of concrete steps on a bmx bike. Landed the barspin, drove the spokes strait through the top of the tire on impact. Broke my ankle, wrist, bailed backwards and earned myself 17 staples in my dome piece.
I understand where people are coming from when they always insist on wearing helmets while skating from, but its pretty annoying. I dont where one. It has nothing to do with what pros do, its a personal choice and fully aware of the potential consequences. For some reason people never seem to be able to accept that.
