I have one leg and usually even when it hurts I still skate because you know, board is life.

Over the years I’ve gotten tons of road rash, scrapes, bruises, and hurt asses. My hips particularly tend to take a beating. A concussion too. That’s not fun

My wallet is broken. Beside from that, no broken bone yet and hopefully not anytime soon with all the expensive protective gear I’m wearing.

What on earth are you doing? Driving with 150km/h? :smiley:

there are many broken things abt me but just the esk8 things are:

  1. being an idiot and shredding my favorite jacket and messing up my hip.
  2. that’s it.

The only thing electric skateboard broke on me were my lungs, it was small part I guess from soldering fumes combined with all the other things I should not be inhaling, the doctors cut 30cubic centimeters out :smiley:

I broke everything before I started skating. There isn’t much I could do other than re-injure things.

I’ve actually been really lucky.

No incidences to speak of on Eskate.

Couple of bruised hips from riding normal longboard in the rain.
One instance of particularly deep road rash on elbow from pokemon-go-ing while skating.
And one konk on the back of the head that ended my day riding, but was also definitely sub-concussive.

My latest, and worst injury was just from manualing a popsicle deck, I was fatigued from a day of riding already and the board shot backwards and I hyperextended the arch of my foot or something, I would have sworn I broke something except there was no swelling. Was nearly 4 weeks ago and I’ve very close to being back to 100%, I’ve been stuck riding ONLY Eskate for the past 2 weeks because pushing has been out of the question.

Dang man you’re not skilled in “life” are you :joy:
You should get out with protection all over you, like the Michelin Guy
