When you guys have a wipe out do you guys get a little freaked out when you get back on your board or feel like you lost your mojo? Today I fell on the asphalt and busted my upper lip, scraped my hands, banged up my knees, and got roadrash on my chest. So the rest of the day I felt weird on my board like I was gonna lose it again and fall. I'm not sure if I was having an off day or whatever so I ended up taking it real easy like I did when I first learned. Does this happen to you guys or is it just me?
A little bit of fear is healthy. It keeps you alive. Use it to make you a better rider.
When you've skated for years, road rash becomes normal aha. As long as you're consistently challenging yourself you will crash and get hurt. Just how it is.
I always get shaky legs after, it's really weird pushing.
One time I crashed on a hill and didn't want to go back down the hill for the longest time even though I had gone down worse hill that one just sketched me out.
Definitely shook my confidence downhilling, but I got right back on the board that session. I took it slow after I recovered. Just make sure you pad up and wear that safety gear!
