god damned boxes

I told myself "hit the box with a flat base, do not go on edge." As I approached it, I tried to keep my speed low and was going moderately slow when I decided to shed more speed... on the take off ramp. I landed on my toe edge and it instantly went out from under me, causing my right shin to scrape painfully down the box.



The scrape is about 3 - 4 inches long and has left part of my shin completely numb 3 days after teh fall. I think I'm done with boxes for this season.

The thing with boxes is that speed helps. You just gotta work up the guts to carry the speed.

Cancel that thought right now, go back and hit it when you're healed up and own it, don't let it control you.

Don't even wait to heal. The box can smell fear.

my first attempt at a boardslide on a box slammed me too. No injuries, but scared me.
I hit it next time down, but I wasn't bashed like you. Get some soccer shin guards and hit it again

i saw in this one Ice Coast video (I think it was in Numskull) one of those guys shinned a street rail and pulled up his pant to reveal this gaping, bleeding wound. I hurt just watching it.

Dude I got the EXACT same injury last season! Took a few weeks for the pain to go away when touched but it still feels numb a year later.

My recommendation is to buy yourself some shin guards before you ride next time and hit the box again with more speed, and concentrate on looking past the feature not down at your feet. I went out the following week and hit the same spot on my shin, but this time my guards saved me from something much worse (still hurt like hell though).
