yah i launched off a roller and had to bail out. I just slid on my ass until I got my bearings back and hooked my heel edge in and kept going. prob never got below 35 or 40 just kept going. it hurt worse slipping off a box that was only 6 inches off the ground right on my ass

haha no mean all my friends are always searching for the next big high and do speed balls everything. I tell them come strap up to a board and ride with me for a day and I'll get you a high that nothing can compare to. Only one of my never ending list of friends that marijuana is the hardest drug used (which I don't call it a drug b/c it treats my insomnia lol)

Yea i gotta agree about taking spills at speed, they are usually not that bad at all. We do downhill skateboarding and most of the falls you just slide over the pavement, its when you hit something mid-slide that you can really get hurt. Yet free riding you can fall at 10mph land on your hip and be out for a week. Mostly because when you go fast you are closer to the ground, that makes it easier for you to just glide over the ground rather than falling from a higher standpoint you usually bring more momentum coming down and crash much harder

According to my Iphone app "Ski Tracks" I hit 72.4 MPH on Starfire @ Keystone this year
It was this year, so it was pretty much hard-pack/ice.

I don't flatbase, I keep an edge lightly engaged, I think I would have won If I didn't pop off a lip, that's where he left me in the dust..

Group of five of us, I came in second.. my skier buddy won =[


This year sucks, by the way..

For sure, I've lost it at speed a few times, just tumble around till you regain your edge and ride off.. my worst slam ever was a cat track going about 15 mph, caught a front edge when i was landing from a side-hit and broke or bruised some ribs & broke the nose.

According to my GPS the highest speed I reached one day last season was like 380 mph or something rediculous like that. I think it was from when I caught an edge on my last run and went from being upright to faceplant at 380 mph.
