Moving Forward Full Movie

Pretty crazy story. I have some stickers and wristbands on the way myself. Sorry if it's been posted. Feel free to fix it if I mess up.

Pretty crazy. It always seems like this happens a lot with snowboarders and really any action sports athlete. Someone sustains an injury that would normally just kill the average person. Not only do they survive, but they manage to come back after medically being examined as close to paraplegic and go back to the sport that they got injured in. I feel like somehow that sport gives them something to fight for, but then again I'm not extremely religious so I kinda doubt this. But hey, you never know.

Ya, like Kevin Pearce. He is so lucky to be alive. Too bad about Sarah Burke though... And what always amazes me is that you don't hear about too many injuries or worse with street/urban snowboarders and street skaters. Most of them don't wear helmets and those guys/girls make some good size jumps and rail slides over concrete.

I think it's mainly because they are only going fast enough to sustain really painful, but non-serious injuries. Some can, but it's not common.

Well I mean for stuff like rail slides down a set of stairs. You see in the wipe outs they always include in pro videos some pretty good falls and since your strapped in it seems like you could get unlucky and get your board caught and go head first into the ground. It doesn't take too much speed or height for your head to smash open. I see your point though.

This kid is a legend here in NH. Was pretty messed up to hear what had happened to him. Everyone was expecting huge things from him. That sucks to watch.
