    That's pretty much why I think it's a stupid idea.

    If I offered $1,000 to the first kid who could hit 45mph on a certain board, hell, it'd be filled with professionals, but how many kids are going to say "Hey, $1,000 for just going down this hill?" and they'll dive right into it.

    There are going to be a few kids who say/said "$1,000 for jumping these stairs? No problem"

    Thread revival just to say: after all the sh*t you've talked over the years about the downhill community, Jake Phelps, you sure look like a dingus laying in the middle of the street bleeding from your head with the cops trying to hold your brains in!!!

    Ask the soup and soft food eaters what they think about helmets and I'm sure they wish they wore one.

    My other buddy that's 45, and been involved in that side of the industry for decades, who was there too and knows the guy personally says that he probably didn't even "hit a reflector" as he claims, but is a crackhead and when he raised both arms in the air whilst bombing the hill the rush of blood caused him to collapse, he just straight folded and schlumped for no reason at all besides a life of drug addiction

    "Hit a reflector"?!? Haha. That clown was stiff as a board the whole way down the hill. Eating sh*t was inevitable with his form that poor. He raised his arms and the wobbles ate him alive. It's on video and obvious as hell. It's hill bombing 101. Don't lock your knees.

    Phelps? Is the guy who looks like a drugged-out vagrant?

    Anyway, this unfortunate accident was certainly a poetic comeuppance, but this really isn't something that we should be relishing over and celebrating.
    yes, an uber-grippy, square-lipped slalom wheel IS the best for sliding

    Nobody celebrating his misfortune, simply discussing its ironies and ribbing him for his general loserness. Rest assured, he would do the same and more to you.
