Leo Here's my noob box shenanigan crash. What you can't get from the video is that these approaches had a fairly steep incline and were rutted out like a mofo. You also can't really tell the severity of the crash I had (first one obviously). My buddies said it looked like I wasn't going to get back up. That was two Sundays ago and right now, my upper right arm still feels like shit as well as my right hamstring area. Basically, I fucked up my approach and instead of riding off to the side, I attempted to save it with a half-assed nose blunt(?)... for some reason, my mind said "this is a good time to try your first nose blunt".

And why yes, that was a Cobra was hitting boxes with lol.

Can't stop watching.

And I foresee this in my future.

Donutz So after starting this fine ironic thread, I had occasion yesterday to push off the heelside lip of a box before I'd actually gone over the lip. Did a most impressive pratfall.

You may mock when ready.

Leo I was riding last Sunday before our Test Fest days... I made the mistake of hitting boxes numerous times. Towards the end of the day, I ate shit really hard. I made the classic mistake of trying to save a fucked up approach and next thing I know, I'm swinging my arm in front of my face so I don't break my nose on the box. Impact was super hard... I hit slammed my head into my arm, my right leg buckled under me and hit the box hard as well. My buddies thought I was done for.

Then I got back up and hit wide box immediately after and grabbed Indy on the dismount haha. REDEEMED!

Seriously though, I'm still in pain and I swear I dislocated something in my hamstring area that day. I stretched, something popped, and it was gone. Needless to say, due to this crash, I had to take it easy for the rest of Test Fest. Next year, I will either not ride Sunday before or take it super mellow if so.

I need to check my GoPro. I'm pretty sure it's all on there. Although the camera angle was totally fucked after the crash.

Any tips on how to spin on these? I can do the presses and boardslides and stuff, but I always see the 8 year old skiiers 720 spinning the length of it.
My problem with wide boxes is that damned Seymour park crew won't leave them in place long enough . I'm like Snowolf, I want to build up carefully to a full trick. Make a good start, then next time I'm on the mountain the damthing is gone.

This is me as well, but I am armoring up. Actually considering back protector for my spins, which seem to be on hold till next season.
