Top 5 wipeouts you’ve endured

1. The first day of summer around 11th grade I didn’t ollie high enough onto a rail and hit a barrel that was floating the rail stopping me instantly and breaking my tibia bone that they filled with my hip bone and capped with a metal plate.
2. Winching with OTT, I think it’s in the bonus footage of Not What ‘cha Think but I was trying to lipslide onto an incline rail then gap to a box. On my second try I didn’t really get on the incline rail that good and slammed my hip into the box and it spun me face first into the pile of rocks. I was sliding over. The left side of my thigh muscle has a serious indent and one of my front teeth got chipped.
3. Trying to fakie ollie off a start box in Homeless the board stuck and I flew down about 5 or 6 feet onto my back on the rocky shore in Canyon Lake.
4. I was doing a re-entry 3 shuv down in Florida and fell, when I came out of the water I opened my eyes and saw my board that I thought was just floating next to me. Instead it was cruising pretty fast and popped me in the cheek. My cheek was bloody like Johnny Depps in the movie Once Upon A Time In Mexico.
5. I was probably about 6 years old and I got stuck strapped in a kneeboard upside down in the water. Trippy.
