    Default worst fear in skating

    I'm always scared that I'm going to land on my board and it's going to shoot up and spear me in the face. It actually did happen once, on a flatground kickflip, and just from that I thought I was going to lose my tooth. Ergo my dislike/fear of stairs/drops.

    Another one I hate is spraining my ankle, the signature injury of skateboarding. It sucks so much.

    although it doesn't apply for me, learing how to drop in is pretty scary. thank god that's over. and for stairs, i'm more scared that i won't make it across the set. i don't really mind the height.

    Yeah when it pops straight up and hits you there as you come down
    It happened to this one 5th grader at my park once when he was trying to get the most air off a kicker as possible, he lost control of it and it raped him up the ass when he came down,(because it as like 4 inches higher rthan his legs and he had to absorb the fall) he was crying for at least half an hour

    My worst fear is being scared of doing something, because its when u get scared to do something when the most injuries occur.
    (spelled that wrong^^)
    The funniest/painful thing is when I try to 50-50 and the board goes right from under my feet, flying forward(toeside) and I keep traveling in the direction im moving in until I fall. Man that hurts
