    Wow. I`ve fallen in a similar way, but it was only on a half pipe, not one of these mega ramps. One tough guy to walk away like that. Hit so hard his shoes fell off.
    I saw this on TV, and I was freaking out... He didn`t move at first, so all I was thinking was "Dude, I just saw someone die..."

    That isn`t walking away then. That`s being knocked out, and then walking away. Walking away is when you get straight up out of it.

    i watched this when it happened. i was freaking OUT. it`s ridiculous that he was able to stand up and walk away from it... i saw his shoes go flying off and i was just like, "...wow. how the hell did this happen!?" so glad he`s okay, though. he`s an amazing skater.

    SPrink7, it`s called walking away because he, you know, walked away... him being knocked out has nothing to do with it. The fact that they didn`t have to carry him out on a stretcher is pretty remarkable.

    damn it would suck if they told him it didnt count after falling off.

    people flap their arms and legs in the air as an attempt to maneuver themselves out of landing on their face

    That was one smart, cool sucker...

    It takes a lot of brains and a lot of self-control to stop all that arm-flailing and tuck your body into a position where you`ll probably land better when you`re watching the ground whirl up to meet you...

    Wow, and his shoes did pop off... And he did hit the first-ever 720, according to the commentator....

    Apparently, though, a 720 makes your board go "squirrely"

    With how he landed right on his back, he`s lucky he only got stress fractures in his vertebrae, that looked like the type of thing that could easily paralyze you.

    Can`t believe they just let him get up, even if he could get up that could result in further injury like a broken back. If you pause it on the last 2 seconds you can see his whole upper body being bent in half while his legs flail in the air. Guess "best medical staff" doesn`t say much.
