By far, my favorite parts of skate videos are the bail sections. I enjoy good skating as much as anyone, but the sadistic part of me just can’t get enough of seeing people hurt themselves in creative and painful ways (I especially enjoy handrail impalements).
That said, some slams I wouldn’t wish on anyone. Jake Brown’s 40-foot fall at the recent X Games definitely qualifies. That’s like jumping from the top of my apartment building! Dude pops his shoes off, breaks multiple bones and organs – and walks away. Hang on ’til the end for extra-punishing camera angles of the fall.
