The absolute worst bail i've ever taken was when i was trying to get a Rodeo down, i put too much force into my right foot, i went flying backwards in the air, landed on my face and broken my jaw...can you beleive it...http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

I skated at a Skatepark for my B-Day, but since I got so screwed up my folks won't let me do it again.
I ride a Mongoose, but want either a Lasek board or a Margera board.
Snowboarding is fun when it's too cold to skate.

Used to, got a cheap birdhouse spin-off. Y'know what? I sucked. I could ollie, nollie, and do a 360 Faceplant, 180 "OH MY GOD! MY BALLS!" (From landing on a rail in a bad way... Don't ask.)
And that's about it.

My worst was going downhill on uneven (British)pavement which knocked me off, went out of control an landed on right arm and ended up knocking my head against a parked car (Ford Escort '94 reg http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif) of all the cars, WHY this one??

i was purely street.
though i tried a vert ramp once and spilled right on my butt.
needless to say that was the only time i tried it.

lol, i do both, but i like Vert better...
02-01-2005, 09:31 AM
you gotta remember though, i was skating 10 years ago, maybe more and skate parks weren't prevalent back then...all we had were parking lots, the front of our high school and our streets.

I used to skateboard but now I inline, I like vert the best. The best trick I have landed was a Mc-Twist on a ten foot vert ramp. I once skated at the same park as Ceasar, he was awesome. I have recently been trying to land a backflip but I have stacked it so many times that I am thinking of giving up. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif
