Thumbs up Oakley's saved my life.

This is the story of how my goggles saved my life <---(exaggeration)

It was probably my second or third season riding a few years ago. So im cuttin sideway to try and make it closer to the lodge when i got on the the bottem side of a large hump in the snow where the mountain got steeper. i was cutting heelside so my back was up the mountain (Dont worry i learned my lesson). So, you know that best guy at your mountain, who shreds harder then anyone, does crazy shit you wish you could do, and is there riding every day no matter what. Well "that guy" was cruisin down and ollied off that previously mentioned hump in the snow, floats over and sees me... in the way. He yells while still in air, i look up right as he collides into me going probably about mach 3. So i looked up and first contact was the side of his head, hitting my goggles. We got tangled up and tumbled down and down.... and down, about the distance from 1 lift tower to the next, maybe 200ft. i stood up all confused with some minor aches, but my head was fine thanks to my Oakley's. He just laid there not knowing what the fuck was going on. Once i realised what happened, i felt like kind of an ass for being in the way. When ski patrol came and i found out he had a concussion, i felt like a bigger ass. Then when i found out him and his crew were driving up to whistler the very next day, and he couldnt go cuz of his new injury, i felt like the biggest douche bag ever.

however the purpose of this post is that my Oakley O-Frame goggles left me without a scratch, bump, or bruise. And my goggles weren't even the slightest bit scratched or broken or anything. Buy Oakleys.

I wouldn't feel too much like a douche, it's his fault as much as it is yours. It would be one thing if you decieded to have a picnic on the other side of a designated jump, but you merely stopped on the other side of a hump. Now I'm not saying that stopping on the other side of a hump where people can't see you is a good idea in anyway. It's just that it's a common occurrence so when you are the badass rider who jumps off everything, you have to factor that into your equation.

More then anything it was just being in the wrong place at the wrong time

And yay for Oakley's

Stuff like this is why I wear my helmet at all times when boarding. Just too large of a chance of someone not being able to avoid due to the conditions. I'm always cautious but even I took out a girl on accident once. Coming around a curve a newb girl gets up with out looking and starts sliding into my path. Clipped her board and down she went.

Wait, what the fuck does having a collision with another rider have to do with your fucking "oakleys"? So they didn't get scratched and you didn't get a concussion. The goggles protect maybe an 8th of your head and they don't do it very well either. Basically you got lucky the way he hit you and didn't get injured. Some times thats just how it goes.

BTW i like men
im just sayin, they took a hard collision and took no damage, high quality, good product. So if i wanted to hear about my own accedent and how i got lucky i would have asked. And just so there's no further confusion, if i want you to open your cock holster i'll let you know. Have a nice day.
