Default The Curse of "Last Try / Last Run" Bites Again

Few things in life tempt doom as much as uttering the words "last try" or "last run." I can't even begin to count the number of times I have seen someone (or myself) destroy themselves while skateboarding when the say "las try" and then bite the dirt. Tonight it happened on the mountain. I was hitting a pretty mellow trail for a few runs and was screwing around with butter stuff and some stuff off the jumps on the side of the trail. I was gonna leave (15 min before lifts shut down), but then I noticed NO lift line and was like "OK, one more." I was tired and hungry. About 2/3 of the way down, I come up on this little roll and decide to do a backside 360 off it. I wasn't going all that fast, and just when I got to the top of the roll, I notice it wasn't nearlly as much of a jump as I thought it was. But at this point, it was too late. I had already started the wind-up. For a half-second I thought to just go 180 (the wise choice), but then was like "naw, I'll just spin hard." Right. I ended up going about 290, and landed DIRECTLLY to toe edge, which stuck, and down I went HARD. The worst part, is that no one around was around to get any humor out of the wreck.
