I was on my way back to work from lunch on my Sidekick when somebody threw dirty water with detergent on the pavement, right over some painted slow down sign, it was slippery as soap. My rear drive slipped freacking fast and i fell down on my left arm and my head hit the pavement as a whip, it would have been a deadly fall if I wasn’t using my TSG evolution helmet and even though I felt dizzy for 10 seconds.
I’m pretty sure I’d be in ER by now or even dead, so this is just a friendly reminder for all of you to wear helmets, I´m so gratefull to be wearing mine during the fall.
I was naively planning on waterproofing my board until I returned home one day just as rain was starting to fall, and my caguamas slid away from me as if on ice. I was going very slow because I thought that might happen, but it still caught me by surprise! Glad you are alright!
Thanks @Deckoz I’ll buy the the GForms right away.
I was just riding at cruise speed, really low maybe 20km/hr but a lady threw water with detergent over the pavement, here in Lims, in some places, street food carts just throw the water over the pavement after washing their dishes, this might not have happened with Bergmeister wheels but my Century had no spare belts at the moment
Watched any online snow driving fail videos?
had a nice RC car when you were a kiddie?
Ever do DH longboarding?
If your rear wheels go ----> then use the top control to turn -----> this will hopefully balance out the drift
but expect your rear to fly back the other way because you over compensated.
I was driving on the left side of the road and my rear wheels locked up and went this way ---->
onto traffic so I leaned this way a little —> and then my rear wheels went back this way <----
so I started turning into the side walk and my foot brake foot did what it had to.
Glad your OK brotha!
I was just thinking about hooking up for a ride this weekend, but remembered tomorrow is my 1yr anniversary from broken knee accident, figured it’d be best to stay off it this weekend… for the wife sake
Mate when you come off its usually a bolt out of the blue. Steering into a slide is something most drivers know about but it has no relevance on a skateboard unless its a controlled slide. This was not that. Unless you have the reactions of a cat then you’re going down.
