I went to vans skatepark today. im not eactly a vert type of guy, much more street skater than vert. well i wanted to try it. i go to the top of the halfpipe and look down. damn. im freaked. but whenever i get freaked i have a habit of doin the thing that freaked me out. so anyway i set up my board, put both feet on, and dropped in. i went down, down, and kept going till my eye was bleeding on the wood and my leg was pretty wrecked and my arm was cut and i was pretty shakin. i got up and walked over to the black foam padding and **** and layed donw for like 10 minutes in a complete daze not realizing i was hurt at all. then i realized my leg and arm felt like they were broken(they arent, just felt that way). but now it kills. it didnt affect my skating tho. i was still ollieing stairs and doin grinds and all that **** but crap! the halfpipe hurts.
