Straight To The Dome

It's all fun and games until somebody busts their head open...

Stretch session to start off the day.

Do you stretch before you skate?

Bucky and Herling's epic grip jobs.

Josh about to go H.A.M.

Cold chillin'.

The socks prove that Ryan is just another Loyal Pawn of the ever growing Toy Machine army. 

Then it was up and over to the next spot.

Remember that D.I.Y. spot I blogged about months ago? Well, this is what's left of it.

I never even had a chance to get some on it.. : (

After the sad sight we mosied on over to this sizable alternative.

And then just like that, it happened. Mike was just tryin' to have some good ol' innocent fun but he got it straight to the dome! Video courtesy of Jem Lacasandile.

Roy was kind enough to offer his shirt to suppress the bleeding.

Despite his bleeding brain, Mike was a good enough sport to let us continue with our filming plans.

Gap to rail.

It's not the easiest thing to skate.

With a little over an hour of light left, we hit up this one last spot.

Jem is here to deliver your package via U.P.S. Hahaha...

Then at last, we made our way to the hospital.

Fortunately, Mike was lucky enough to save himself from getting a concussion and now he's all good and skating again! : )
