    worst skateboard fall you've ever taken

    Discussion started by garcia_vega - Jul 19, 2001

    i was reading that skaters unite post and it got me thinking about all my slams. my worst slam was trying to grind a 7 stair rail and it stuck. i landed on my face and broke my cheekbone. i kept spitting blood for 2 days so i went to the hospital and they said they might need to wire my skull back together, but i just never went back to the hospital after they said that.

    First time I met Tony Hawk I was doing backside smiths on this thigh high ledge and got a 3rd degree sprain in my ankle.
    Worst fall...I was rockin' pop shuvits down the 8 stairs infront of our middle school. well I landed it and my back foot was a little too off the board. Caught a toe on the ground and did the splits. Turned out I tore my MCL and strained all the other ligaments (ACL, Patella tendon, and the other minor ones) in one knee. Strained my MCL and Patella tendons in the other. This all 2 days before graduation. So now I have arthritis in my knee, lost about 4 and a half inches in vertical leap, and because of all the other ankle injuries I have arthritis in them too.

    I already wrote this in third rail, but here it is again:

    Last September I was boarding downtown and when I went to ollie a gap...Smack! I hit a small rock which stopped my board dead. Too bad I kept going. The first thing that hit the cement wa my left knee, followed by my left elbow and hand. I got up and felt fine; picked up my board. After walking a few steps my left knee was hurting. Somehow I got a freind to take me to the hospital and I ended up with a fractured patella. I was on crutches for 2 months and I couldn't paint. Life's a bitch.

    I've been lucky for the most part with my share of falls. The worst was when I strained my wrist (again it's not a big deal) I was going back down a quarter pipe blindly and my board stopped and i fell back and landed on my wrist.

    I did almost the same thing that -Rage- did, except when I landed, I was on my feet. I lost my balance and hyperextended my right knee. About a month after that, I fell down some stairs helping a friend move, and I twisted the same knee. That was about six months ago. I actually went skating the other day for the first time since I got hurt. My knee is still sore.
