This is an instructable on how to take a fall while skateboarding. In this example, Bruno will be showing you how to fall while grinding a ledge.
Bruno begins to crouch like normal to start his trick.
He ollies onto the ledge.
He begins to grind.
Halfway through the ledge, he begins to loose his balance.
At the very last part of his grind, his front foot slips off the griptape, and he begins to fall forward.
This is the most crucial part of falling. Bruno puts his hands out first to absorb the impact.
He then rolls forward to make the fall less painful.
He lays in his failure and self pity.
After the pain has left his body, he gets up.
The key to falling, is to play it off as if nothing ever happened.
He walks away calm, cool, and collective. Even though he is still crying inside form the pain he just endured.
