Hi, I'm a new member since today and I've been checking out ATS since 2-3 months now.
Ok you're asking for our biggest fail ever, I have more than a handful of fails in my bag having been a Jackass fan as a teenager but if I have to
chose one I'll choose the one I have to remember for the rest of my life...
We were a couple of friends, up here in Montreal, Canada home town Pointes-Aux-Trembles in the winter time, we were walking around getting high and
being Jackasses, were looking to " jackass " around.
My buddies had snow skates ( which is basically a just the board of a skate board all waxed underneath), and they were good and I did'nt know if I
was good at all since... I never got on a board without wheels and I only had started skate boarding since a couple of months before, mainly by means
of transportation, so they decide that we go in the elementery school back yard play ground and and try out some slides on the snow skate. FIRST slide
we try everybody goes down the slide berore me, it was about 5 ft high and maybe 6 foot in lenght, and they all did pretty well with some falls that
pretty much just landed on their fornt side in the snow and got up just fine. The guy before me hit the ground a little harder and we all laughed real
hard, so me being the last to ride the slide, I wanted to make everybody laugh again but harder, so I figured I would use the handle bars at the top
of the slide to give me a real good push and hope to not hit the ground TOO hard but having never done ANY snow skate it was the worst decision I have
made yet ( giving the extra push of course especially since I did'nt even see one of my buddies do it thus I did'nt have any clue what the effect
would be) and the effect was so : The board just took off in the air and I fell at full speed and landed sitting on my right ankle with my 200 plus
pounds at the time.
So I broke my fibula at my ankle ( you know that bump at your ankle on the exterior of your leg?) it was loose it broke all the way through so I had
to get surgery to get it fixed. Now I have a permanent metal plate with 4 screws through it and one long screw that goes all the way through the bone
and the tip comes in between the fibula and the shin at the ankle. Since then about 8-9 years now my right ankle is weaker than the other one and I'm
right sided so it took some adjustment plus being in cast and walking around with stands on icy grounds happened a couple of other fails Hahahaha.
So basically, don't try this at home!
