Electric boardsport accident vid, safety thoughts, etc



  • So I broke my wrist riding Onewheel and only recently got the nerve to get back on the thing, when this video pops up in my Youtube feed
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVZz8EN_NKw
    Might be of interest for safety folks. The crash is around eight minutes if you like cutting to the chase.

    So I was thinking "oh great here we go, I'm gonna die boardsport kills etc ad naus" but this guy made a lot of mistakes:
    -No helmet (no gear at all actually)
    -Trespassing (because whenever anything isn't locked it's ok to go in)
    -Fast stuff
    -Filming
    So it had talk about safety and how dangerous e-boardsport is and all that, with dudes at shows wearing full face helmets and full body textile suits when the bottom line was the guy went out one time without a helmet and suffered severe brain trauma.

    I try to avoid reading YouTube comments however Casey Neistat came up under this vid and that was good reading. I like the guy, he's great but zipping around NYC on a Boostedboard weaving in traffic no safety gear talking to a DSLR while filming aerial with a drone, I have a rotten feeling he's just going to bite it someday.



  • @Poseur-Pete I don't doubt it. He's like the Steve Irwin of YouTube.
