Thats why you wear a helmet when hitting rails, you never know what can happen really.

That was such a cool trick, the face grind. Im pretty sure he was trying to do that.

Maybe he should be wearing a hockey helmet with a full face mask!

maybe a good idea!

That might actually be a pretty good idea for hitting sliders for the first time.

I feel like his biggest problem is that if your driver brings you that close to the rail, it's a little harder to ollie when you're close up. I bet if he had had a better cut he could have ollied clear onto it.

You should have seen the first slider I tried. Oh man, I got lucky I didn't do what that guy did, it was massive.

i've done that on a snowboard, although i wasn't bleeding.
it was still pretty embarassing to end up doing a flip onto the rail and landing on my back.
