We decided to get under the skin of an assortment of pro riders by posing one question and seeing how they stack up. This time we asked “What’s the worst slam you ever had?”
Feel free to add your own answers beneath!
“It might be when I got a concussion in Folgefonna – I did a backside triple and landed 90 degrees and scorped super hard, lost my brains for a few minutes. I also had one in Japan, I didn’t really get hurt but I jumped and tapped this tree branch and hit it too hard and landed on my stomach kinda scorped. In the same moment that I landed the branch flipped my board up and I got a super scorp. It felt like I’d broke my back in half. I guess it was just the vertebrae touching or whatever; it felt super gnarly. I didn’t dare to move at first, I thought I’d broke my back. It felt like my ass was touching the back of my head but I just chilled for one day, had a bunch of ice baths and I was fine.” – Ståle
