Watching A Skateboarder Eat It So Hard Trying Shred The Back Of A Basketball Hoop Is So Painful

I have a pretty high threshold for watching cringe-inducing videos without reacting. This job requires you to develop a tolerance for that shit.

Yet, for some reason, I kept seizing up every time I watched skateboarder Dave Mull lose it and go sprawling toward the pavement, as he tried to shred the back of a basketball hoop

I used to skin my knees all the time, careening into pavement like it was no big deal. But now, somehow, at 32, I’m terrified of it. Even watching it happen to some rando dude on the web make me feel uncomfortable.

Anyway, enjoy. He does eventually succeed.
