For the simple fact that I could not afford to bail, I just stayed on and started to do big giant carves, tightening them to bleed speed. Took my friends like 30 minutes to find me at the bottom cuz they were sure I was mangled over the edge somewhere.

At one point a car caught up behind me and it was hard to decide if they were gonna chill and it was tough to communicate...I went straight for a sec and waved them by..that was a pretty hairy moment...
longboarding has a LOT of "I could die here" moments. bombing hills can get very sketchy very quickly haha
