UPDATE: These are sliding gloves meant for this exact purpose. Thanks to a reader for pointing this out, and remember, as always, we’re all idiots here.
Look, I know only losers wear wrist guards (unless you were Mitchell Goosen, he made roller blade safety gear cool), but this bro making this skateboard save has gotta be happy he had his protection on.
Otherwise, he’d be looking at two shattered wrists and a head lodged into the asphalt.
Instead, he just coolly slides down the hill on his hard plastic.
Maybe safety isn’t for losers after all.
