thats fucked up...its so easy to die u kids dont realize. like suriously u could die by tripping on ur shoelace and falling the wrong way, or u could be just skating down the sidewalk minding ur own business and WHAM< u get hit by a drunk driver or something. ive almost died hundreds if not thousands of times in just freak shit but i always seem to come out relatively unscathed. its obviously just not my time to go yet or else id be dead a long time ago

A Bolinas man died of severe head injuries after falling from his skateboard in downtown Bolinas Friday afternoon. Friends said Sage McCollum, 28, was heading down Park Road while riding a longboard-style skateboard. A pickup truck, which was driving up the road, reportedly pulled to the side as it saw McCollum skating down the hill.

The Highway Patrol said that at 5:45 p.m. McCollum, in an attempt to maneuver around the stopped truck, lost control and tumbled off his skateboard. First on the scene, Bolinas firefighters packaged the fallen boarder in a stretcher and waited for a county fire department ambulance from Point Reyes Station to transport him to a safe helicopter landing zone.

"There wasn’t a lot we could do for him on scene," Bolinas Fire Chief Anita Tyrell-Brown told The Light. "He was alive but it was quite obvious that he had severe brain trauma – he was never conscious."

County firefighters drove McCollum to the Bolinas firehouse where a rescue helicopter picked him up, flying him to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek. McCollum died at the hospital after attempts to revive him were unsuccessful.

"It was nobody’s fault, everybody was where they should be, there just isn’t much room [on the narrow street,]" Mimi Calpestri, McCollum’s grandmother, told The Light. "There was no daring involved. It was just one of those things. A lot of young men do what he did."

Highway Patrol Officer Jim Bonanno, who is investigating the crash, told The Light Wednesday he believes that McCollum never struck the truck nor was the driver at fault.

"It’s not definitive, but it’s looking like there was no contact with the vehicle," he said, adding that the CHP would most likely not cite anyone involved in the incident.

Death announcement

A memorial service will be held Saturday, June 4, for Bolinas resident Sage Eagle McCollum, who died last Saturday from head injuries sustained in a skateboarding accident in town.

At the time of his death he was working as carpenter with Peacock Designs. He was an accomplished swimmer, surfer, skateboarder, snowboarder, and soccer player.

Born in Stinson Beach on March 6, 1977, before moving to Bolinas last year he’d lived in Oregon, Colorado, Santa Cruz, San Rafael, and on the Hawaiian island of Kauai.

"Sage was very in tune to other people around him," his family noted. "He built bridges everywhere he went."

He is survived by his grandmother, Mimi Calpestri, mother, Sara Carpini; stepfather, John Carpini; father, Bill Buffalo; aunt, Angela Calpestri; brothers, Jesse McCollum; and David Polo; and his sisters, Rachel Polo; Violet Carpini; and Angela Carpini.

Friends are invited to gather at 9 a.m. on Saturday, to paddle in his honor from Bolinas Beach. A memorial service will be held at noon at the Bolinas Community Center.

Family members have suggested that any memorial contributions be made to a family fund payable to Tristen Lowry, c/o Fineline, PO Box 717, Bolinas, 94924.

You are still hitting an extremely hard object, and you are going at a considerable force, then you hit your head, cause internal head injury, which can lead to putting you into a coma, which you can die from if you don't awake.

I saw a vid once of this guy going to try a boardslide or something on a 7 set rail he missed his foot and hit his stomach on the rail bounced off and fell like 4 feet down right on his head on the cement. There was so much bleeding externally and interally. He lost a foot of his large intestine, fractured his skull. broke his leg in 2 places and broke his arm and he lived

its pretyty easy to die doing anything. its scary how easy it is to just keel over and die. if you just hit your head in the wrong spot you could just die like that.lots of people die every year in skateboarding. and actually less people die in skateboarding than in other sports. i saw it in some magazine or watever

aw yeah you're bad. Go put a curse on me with your homey the devil. It's people like you that will eventually ruin the planet. I do enjoy being overzealous, but you can't even make any comments about my sexuality because you don't know me. I have a girlfriend, making me straight, and I also had sex with your mother last night.

So if my homey is "the devil", who would that make your homey? And I am in a righteous position to make a comment about your sexuality, your mother has a tendency to yell out random comments about her sons sexual orientation when she's being fucked in the ass.

On Genex theres a thing called Riders Vs. Sergeons, they are shown slams from skating, BMX, Skiing, Snowboarding and Mountain biking and they haved to say if they went to hospital what injury they had and how long they were out.

Any way there was this guy in Austrailia who had a mini-ramp in his backyard and he dropped in of and 8ft peice of wood. Any way he bails and he has no helmet on and his head hits the ground, and im not joking it bounces like 1ft off the bottom of the pipe. Not nice.

Faces of Death has tons of shit like that, like some guy who does a kf front blunt to neck break. pretty nasty. a lot of them involve cars or hitting your head though.

I heard about that one on an article.... he was an instructor trying to teach frontside 50-50's when he fell backwards on the bowl hitting his head and he died from the blow. He was wearing a helmet but he didnt strap it in and it fell off.....

every skater whos at least intermediate has close calls now and then. As long as your quick footed and respectful of your limits you're probably not gonna die
