It being a Friday and everyone feeling pretty stoked for the weekend, we thought we’d lower the mood with some truly hideous slams, mwa ha ha ha haaaaa! C’mon, you know you love it.
These are the five worst bails we’ve uncovered on the world wide wizzle. Let us know which equally hideous moments from shred flicks past have yet to be uploaded to YouTube for our grim amusement, and presumably some sick bastard with a penchant for pain will be only too happy to oblige…
5. Jake Blauvelt has a ‘falling’ dream, Forum or Against ‘Em
They say ‘speed is your friend’, but when you’re buttering off a 50 foot cliff, I’d say ‘speed is your shortcut to A&E’…
4. Gigi Rüf does Orville the Duck impression, Futureproof
You know that feeling when you’re running down a hill and you start to realise you’re going too fast for your legs to keep up? This is the snowboarding equivalent.
3. Brett Butcher gets butchered, Snowboard Realms Podcast
“Just breath dude,” says Brett’s mate helpfully after he’s turned himself into human pancake on a rock-hard flat landing. Sound medical advice if ever we heard it. The tag on youtube says: ‘broken back’. We say: ‘number 3′.
2. Nick Perata takes his board in for a stone grind… head first. From Critical Condition
Was there ever a more apt title for a movie? Perata is credited with inventing the term ‘jibbing’; judging by this clip we’re surprised it ever took off.
1. Unknown freerider gets truly X-Treme
Top spot goes to this chap, who demonstrates why they call it the ‘fall line.’ We can’t remember his name; I doubt he can either.
.. oh, did we say there were only five? Here’s a little bonus gore, courtesy of James Sievers in Steamboat Springs…
