I nominate CrazeeDave's last post as the POST OF THE WEEK!

Lets get some plane tickets and go up there and represent! (do I have to leave my S&W model 19 .357 home tho? Really?)

I can just see the power failure on the drop ins! That's rich!

Man that's lame that people would give you **** just for wearing a helmet or rolling :/ I've never caught crap from other people at my park except for like, one time when I was waxing up my kink rail (yeah I'm the only person who uses the whole thing, the boarders just like tapping the corner of it and pretending the did a trick).

They were all bitching at me about how I made it unrideable and kept falling down. I got off my skates, asked them if I could see one of their boards for a minute, and started busting boardslides within 2 or 3 tries. That shut them up :P

But anyway, to get back on topic, that definitely sucks Also, while there's no way I can possibly argue that a helmet is a good idea, I really dug your hat man

I can't really say anything because I myself do not wear a helmet unless required by the park but here's a video to get an idea of what could actually happen to one of us. This truly had to suck!

Thumbs down

Notice how he's laying there shaking? Those are siezures. Those are usually followed by, or at the same time as uncontrollable vomit.

The guy I saw who did that hit his head, bled all over the place, then puked, and then lurched around in the mess. The smell, the sight, the feeling of helplessness trying to console his 5 year old boy who was present....... I'm 43 and it ****** me up. I've had dreams about it. And it wasn't even my head.
THe paramedics and firemen had to literally tape his head to the body board, he was fighting and screaming and he had no idea who he or his son were. He spent 10 days in the ICU, couldn't speak for a week, spent another 2 weeks in a normal hospital room, and has totally lost his sense of smell/taste.

He wears his helmet now.

That's why I'm so ate up with helmets.

That same type of fall happened to a friend of mine. He wears his helmet 100% of the time now, and busts everyone without a helmet's balls. Haha.

i remember watching my first blading DVD. it was BE-Mag:Featuring the world, and in roskilde tour section Aragon pulled the same trick that Tom Burch pulled right there with the topsoul to unity. he even pulled it off in exactly the same way doing the topsoul on one rail then jumping to the next and doing the unity. everyone went absolutely f'king nuts when aragon pulled it off.

those boys are seriously talented.
are any of them (apart from Dalnas) sponsored?

Rich's best friend is now our girls classes teacher - he, like us, wears a helmet!

What is wrong with wearing a helmet, anyway?

it's not deemed as cool when you're a professional. i don't know whether they think they're invincible or whether they think they can do every trick in the book without a helmet.

and these days, kids would rather be wearing the latest new era cap instead. the caps that always fall off their heads when they land a 180 drop haha. there's only a tiny amount of skaters that wear helmets and they tend to be the older generation as they are wiser and know what their head means for them. i was fortunate enough to have my father drill it into my head how important a helmet is from a young age.
after all, a helmet can be the difference between life and death.

Cool! Did he it leave scars where the screws attached it to your head?

Yeah, parents can be really good at passing solid wisdom on to us. My parents passed quite a few lessons on to me that I too realize are a blessing.

thanks RD. yeah's he's a pretty cool dad. i'm glad he taught he how important it was to wear a helmet when i was younger. the thing that made it stick was a story he told me about one of his old friends that fell off his bike and cracked his head wide open on a curb because he wasn't wearing a helmet. i cracked my head open when i was 1 when i fell of a chair (i was sitting on my legs apparently so i couldn't save myself) and i tipped forwards and hit my head on the corner of a wardrobe. i don't remember what happened or the pain obviously, but i've got quite a scar and i don't really want another one! helmet's for me are a no brainer in sports like this.

Great footage and good swift editing. I also liked the music. I had one problem though....

.....it ended in injury! Stop falling! Got it?! Good.

Now, I want to see some more vids. Get back to work.
