Beware The Scorpion | Slam Of The Week

One of the most glorious scorpions we have ever seen.

We’ve all been there, you’re flying through the air and you know for certain that you’re not going to stick your trick. But what you certainly don’t expect is for your own snowboard to sneak up behind you and smack you in the back of the head. Scorpion‘s are an inevitable part of sucking at snowboarding and once you’ve done it for the first time, you’ll live in fear forever. Beware the scorpion.

This French girl was attempting to learn frontflips, but decided to bail out of one of her early attempts less than half way through. The result is one of the most glorious scorpions we’ve ever seen.

If you can make it through the super weird edit that has been slowed down to the point that there are clear gaps between the individual frames, you’ll see her stick her trick at the end of the video. Not bad, particularly after taking a harsh scorpion like that on the way to getting there.
