Today I had a pretty close call I would say. I was riding the park at my local resort, which means the jumps are very steep and alot of kick, so they can easly throw an not so experienced park rider like me to the ground. It was on a 45-50ft jump, and I think I was too much on my heels as when I got up in the air, I started to fall backwards and ended up landing nearly flat on my back and hit my head slightly! To redeem myself, I went up and hit it again, but just more on my toes and success! lol
Lesson learned for sure, I wont hit the park without helmet anymore
