Ha! I had a similar spill in VA Beach a few years ago. Came speeding around a corner on a slight downhill slope, and saw what looked like a patch of concrete across the asphalt ahead. Right before I hit it, I realized that it was wet sand. Skates stopped, Scott didn't. Wrist guards did their job, but I picked up a fair amount of road rash in a few other places.
