I've said it before...crashing is a spectator sport. I definitely feel for that guy, but I must admit, I was on the floor rolling!!!

I think I burst an ear drum and got a consucsion on a plant like that, it's all a little fuzzy now though...

That was pretty funny. It probably wasn't too bad. It was more of a slip out than catching an edge. That was a pretty try. I bet he's landing them now.

i guess it was the loud smack that made it look worse.

i landed my worst faceplant ever this past weekend and according to my friends, they could hear the smack over my NVS's. i am not sure what is worse.....catching the front edge and getting SLAMMED into the water face first? or just landing from 10 ft in the air flat on your face?

The video won't load for me at work, but on the weekend during our local tourney I wittnessed the worst face plant I've ever done so. A junior boys rider, cased a hs 360 and yes you heard the smack.

Then proceeded to see that he was face down 3-4 inches under the surface not moving. By the time some people had hopped in and we're 3/4 of the way there he regained consciousness, but by his hand and head movements he was still non responsive. Boat crew said he was severly concussed.

I think Danny Harfs fall when he tackles the gap slider is worse than the soven face slide.

Ouch!! I've seen a few of my friend face plant pretty hard, but that takes the cake.

I second the harf slider tackle. That's off Boombox right?? When you watch that at full speed it's a miracle he didn't break all his ribs.

OMG and I thought I had some bad faceplants
Old    Matt VdA (mvda)      Join Date: Dec 2002       08-11-2005, 12:49 PM Reply   
That specific fall is usually not that bad. The bad plants come from a whip caused by catching a board edge. That looked uglier than it felt.

Hey Matt... You going to Nationals?

Yes I am. I'm not really ready for it, but going anyway. This is my last year in Mens II. Are you going?
Old    Damien (damienk)      Join Date: May 2002       08-11-2005, 3:44 PM Reply   
Not going this year...figured I would wait for you to come on up and join me in Masters.

The worst part was it sounded like the guy was getting ready to do a power turn. Now that's painful!

The worst fall I've ever seen was the pro tour stop in Orlando at OWC were one of the pro riders does a hugh S-Bend and lands on the side of the flat bar slider and stops completly, he was pretty busted up, the noise it made would causes me goose bumps every time I think of it, it was real ugly. I wish I had a video, someone out there should. I think it happen in 04 but I'm not sure but I think it was worlds during the first round.

sovens is the worst. i cant believe he lived let alone looked relatively conscious about what had just occured.

Watched a ski jumper hit the cow catcher (side of the ramp) on a full double cut. Took his leg off just below the knee. That was a bad crash in anybody's language. Why he didn't refuse the jump, I'll never know.
