It's a good thing the guy had the frame of mind to position himself to where he wouldn't injury himself as badly as he did.

8-o !+) The instant when the board flew out from under him must have been the ultimate "oh ****!" moment. He was in the air for a long time...

His feet just keep running, like he's got Road Runner/Wile E. Coyote powers.

I can't believe that doesn't happen more often. Skateboarding seems extremely dangerous. :-°

I saw this on the local news and it seemed like he got such big air you could've sworn he fell off the Staples rafters. Luckily, he walked off the bump eventually, but the way he had fallen must've prevented more serious injury. :-°

Thanks for the link! ;-D

I saw it on Sportscenter last night. Crazy stuff!!! 8-o He freaked (wouldn't we all in that spot?) but was able to land well enough to keep from killing himself, so at least that much went well :-o .

Man, I saw a clip of this on Jimmy Kimmel and they had doctored the clip to show him crashing through the ramp when he fell. Did anyone else see this? This was the first time I had seen it, and didn't realize that it had been doctored.
