Head Smash

Last Saturday me and the Dooc man went out for a casual bike ride to the beach on our Trick Track builds that ended in a pool of blood, 17 staples, and stitches. I’ll discuss this more on the upcoming Off Track episode, but long story short, I tried to grind a bench and hit my head up top (see gallery for reference). It was such a nice session too. I’m cooped up and off the bike for at minimum a few weeks. I get my staples removed in a couple days so hopefully the healing is quick.

Luckily for me, most of the damage was external and not internal. I thought I was okay until blood started pouring (literally) from my skull. Currently a little unsteady in day to day, but overall not concussed.

Moral of the story, pay attention to the height of things while riding your bike. The moral should probably be to wear a helmet… yeah, maybe lets go with that one.

Wheel Talk | The Truth Don’t Stop

This was such a rad one to wake up to. Wheel Talk and Turf dudes featured in this one of the whole squad’s B-Roll and crash clips. It’s an attempt to “humanize things a bit,” cause we’re all used to perfection from all these dudes. So it’s nice to know that even these guys take a while to land some tricks. The song went perfectly with the riding and gives the video that laid back summer chill vibe you’ve been looking for. So kick back and enjoy this one.
