Last night, I was riding back to my fiances house. Apparently, the lights on my back went out without me noticing. Around 12:00am, a car came speeding up behind me. I turned around and flashed my light at them, and they swerved away about 10 feet before hitting me. I sped up in case they didn’t see me in time, wobbled, and fell about 32mph. They stopped and helped me, actually took me home. Another car came by and didn’t see my board, and ran it over. Entire right side is scraped up, and board is completely destroyed.
Good news I guess is that I get to build it exactly how I want after having more experience but it’s gonna be awhile before I rejoin the community due to money.
Also, quick PSA, always wear a helmet!! Probably wouldn’t be here without it, looking at the scrapes on the visor. I’m also gonna be getting a motorcycle jacket, and padded hip protectors. Probably a lighter helmet too.
Anyways, thanks everyone for the awesome community I got to be a part of. I can’t wait to get back in!
