Yep was about the same wait time for us. The people running the bag jump were also telling people not to do straight backflips, I guess a kid almost caught the lip to the back of the head spinning too early.

after doing the bag a couple times, its fun, but the wait and hassle kind of take away from it for me.

When they demoed the airbag at my local mountain (Crystal), It was at the base area and you just hiked to the predetermined drop-in point. They also said no straight backflips, but this one kid tried to speed check heelside at the lip, slipped out and slammed the back of his head into the lip two times in a row. He wasnt allowed to hit the airbag anymore lol.

Had that moment today. Got some nice air off a lip at the top of a trail that I've been taking all day at a decent speed and there was a kid just standing there at the landing, clipped his skis and I thought I was done. Last thing I remembered was covering my head (thank GOD I wear a helmet) with my arms. My buddy was behind me and said I flipped over my head twice. Luckily I just bruised the crap out of my forearms and neck is pretty sore, but okay otherwise.

There were a few people that came really close to smoking their heads when they started flipping too soon. Up in the quad cities my friend saw a skiier try to do a switch front flip on the bag and went right to his face. Started flipping about 5ft too early.

lol. This isn't a snowboarding incident, but a while ago, I decided to take our 4 - wheeler over some jumps. It was a work 4 - wheeler, not exactly used for jumps, and REALLY front heavy. I got to where I was getting 4-5 feet of vertical air off of it. I decided to go a bit faster, I went about 6 or so feet in the air, and came down right on my front 2. The handlebars bent forward, throwing me over the front, and I landed right in front of the 4 wheeler, and the 400 lb thing ran right over my shoulder and legs, and it drug me along with it until it stopped and i found myself between the front and back wheels. I escaped without much more than a torn up jacket and some scratches.

Thank GOD for helmets.

For the simple fact that I could not afford to bail, I just stayed on and started to do big giant carves, tightening them to bleed speed. Took my friends like 30 minutes to find me at the bottom cuz they were sure I was mangled over the edge somewhere.

At one point a car caught up behind me and it was hard to decide if they were gonna chill and it was tough to communicate...I went straight for a sec and waved them by..that was a pretty hairy moment...
longboarding has a LOT of "I could die here" moments. bombing hills can get very sketchy very quickly haha

Most of mine have come in my Jeep. When you've got a tire 3' off the ground on a narrow shelf trail full of Volkswagen size boulders on the edge of a 1000' cliff, it can be a little bit sphincter tightening. Plenty of times I've made passengers get out so if something goes wrong, it's only my dumb ass paying the price.
