How Did That Happen?

Skating always has those falls that you are never ready for, I have had a bunch of them. The worst thing about those falls are they hurt the most. I remember skating this sketchy 3 stair over rail gap when I was like 13, I was getting over the rail no problem but the landing was nothing but sketch! I kept picking up my board and running back to the side walk to try it again. I get enough run way so I start kickin towards the rail, my foot slips under my back wheel off my last kick. I fly forward because my board had a dead stop reaction to my foot, and I flew down the 3 stairs into the rail! I had a bunch of kids spectating so that just made the fall a whole lot worse besides the pain.

Heres one of those falls:
