 There should be a Friday Falltopsy where pro riders take a few crashes and explain why they crashed in terms of form, line choice, setup etc.

 Mailboxes in Santa Cruz.....in all my years, I have never seen anyone attempt it. it's the greasiest, slimiest, janky thing ever. It's hard enough to walk. lol

 "OH JESUS!!!" is right. That was a horrific sounding crazy....

And I must admit, I enjoy when people schraple themselves into eating dirt.

 Yeah PB site management is kinda all over the place since the takeOver. I think they disintermediated someone they shouldn't have.

 Well between the flats vs. clipless and the trans stories they are sapping valuable humorous commentary from the Friday Fails, normally the high point of entertainment for the week.

Can't these other stories be spaced apart enough to put a stop to this? The video just isn't complete without appropriately ribald humorous commentary!

 Sorry to hear that bro. It's not always the physical side of crashes that is tough to handle, hey. I found that out with a badly broken arm earlier this year also. I hope you can mend up and enjoy the little things as well as the big!

 I feel you. Took me 6 months to get back to normal. Stay positive. Do stuff you can still do and enjoy. You'll get there. Don't succumb to the negative feelings, it won't do you any good.

 The last clip is less a fail than a wise bail out preventing a much bigger fail. The intro clip was just awesome.

 Would be cool to see an edition of first run fails but then sticking it on a second attempt

 After 3 fails, I knew the theme was ‘slingshot falls’, so for the next fails, I was imagining how riders would get slingshot. Great !

 Backflips seem hard

 they aren't (compared to other advanced tricks) but most people, including me, don't commit enough and eat shit

 Somewhat worrying to see how many people are risking spinal injuries whilst not seeming to have the skills to carry them off.

 Would you rather under or over rotate a backflip?
  • 12 0
 I'd rather under-rotate by 360 degrees.

 @r-rocket: what's wrong with over-rotating by 360 degrees?
