Simon Rail Slides

March 29, 2005

My quest to become a sponsored skateboarder has hit a few painful roads lately. I was attempting a rail slide at the skatepark on the weekend and bailed big time.

I landed on the rail and started my slide when my board somehow kicked out from under me. I lost my footing and landed hard on my butt. My butt now has a massive bruise and it hurts to sit down, like I've got hemroids or something. But I'll still keep skating - no pain, no gain.

Ben was with me at the park and managed to get my spill on tape. He forgot to press record when I landed a kickflip last week, but was in perfect position to record my wipeout. What a chump. We watched it later back at my place and it looks pretty gnarly - especially in slo-mo. Not exactly the kind of material I was hoping to put in my "sponsor me" video. But that's okay, I'll nail a rail slide soon enough.

Sindy is coming out to visit it me next week for spring break, so I wanna have something really cool to show her on video by then. She'll get a good laugh at my wipeouts but I also want to be able to show her that I can actually land some tricks as well. Whenever we chat online these days, she's always whining about breaking up with her boyfriend, so hopefully she'll be a little more mellow by the time she gets here. The last thing I wanna do while Sindy's here is listen to her "boyfriend troubles" for a week...

Anyway, I gotta fly. Have you ever had a nasty wipeout while skateboarding? If you have,

Later,
Simon

    Will Simon Get Sponsored?

    • Yeah - he's rad. He'll get sponsored for sure.
    • Maybe - if he keeps skating every day.
    • No way - he's dreaming.

    My brother is 15 and he makes fun of everything I do. I used to get along with him when I was younger but now that we're older he's started acting like a jerk. He always picks on the things I'm most insecure about and it happens all the time. What should I do?
