It seems to be a running theme in these posts that  the humble 5050 can create the most savage of slams. Here the kink at the end adds another dimension of pain as it tangles young Corey's tootsies, putting him down pretty face first.

If somehow these videos have allowed you to slip into a false sense of security where you think you can only get wrecked skating 12 foot pools or 14 stair handrails, then this video serves to remind you that it's entirely possible to absolutely ruin your leg skating your local ledge. Enjoy.

Cardiel came away from the carwash gap with a Spitfire advert that has gone down in history, but Mark Gonzales was less lucky and got sent off the curb onto his face. You win some, you lose some.

Out of all the slams in this raw Dustin Dollin edit (and there are a lot), the one at 7:04 stands out for the sheer amount of skin that must have got left behind. Nothing some Jager wont fix.

Neal Mims was looking forward to getting back on the board when his broken wrist healed up, but then he got buckaroo'd to flat on a steep 5050. Maybe not the best session to ease back into it...
