    This guy's crazy for real. I stopped reading/paying attention to skateboard magazines a few months after that mega-ramp stunt for completely unrelated reasons, but I have nothing but respect for someone who has his knee operated o 5 times and keeps abusing the shit out of it.

    Danny Way- true soldier.
