    I wonder what he was thinking when he was up there and realized he was screwed. That had to be super scary. He probably thought he was going to die, he`s lucky he didn`t.

    Ouch.

    at least he didnt do something stupid like try to land on his feet or anything

    i guess landing on his back is the best thing (barely)

    Shivarama, don`t know if you are being sarcastic when you say, "At least he didn`t do anything stupid like land on his feet.", but if you aren`t being sarcastic watch the video again. He actually does land on his feet.

    He broke 2 vertabraes, his ankle and punctured a lung, i think but im not 100% sure, I read an article by someone who was there covering the event for Skateboarder, apparently everyone thought he was dead.

    You`re an idiot, do you really think he had any control?
