Anthony: Can you fly, Morgan? Can she? Let’s find out.

Jason: Let her down!

Anthony: Drop the gun.

Jason: She’s done nothing to you.

Anthony: Somebody flies tonight. If not her, you. Get up on the wall and jump or I’ll push her off.

Anthony: Oh, you love her, don’t you? Okay. You can watch her die or you can die for love. Your choice.

Elizabeth: Jason, no.

Jason: The storm is passing. You need to get out of here.

Anthony: You’re concerned for me?

Jason: You’re wasting time you don’t have. You’re going to get caught, Anthony.

Anthony: Quit stalling! Either you fly or she does. Now I’m pissed! Somebody’s winging it tonight, dead or alive! Now, fly or die! Okey-dokey – flight canceled.

[Gun cocks]

Anthony: I’ll see you in hell.

Anthony: Ah! They’re calling my flight – I got to go!

Bails and Slams!

Musings by Anthony.

I’ve found that after years of downhilling I got entirely too used to bailing onto my hands and shoes and when skating street or transition I kept destroying my wrists when I’d fall. This happens to every skater who rides street and parks but I wasn’t used to getting hurt so often so I did a lot of thinking about how to bail and have been watching a ton of videos. Bails and slams come with the territory of skating no matter what you ride. They aren’t the same thing either: a slam is you eat shit, a bail is you understanding things aren’t working out so you get out of the way. Slams end with you in pain while bailing can save you from serious injury keeping you skating for the rest of the session or forever. Bailing out is a crucial part of skating and knowing how to bail properly can save you from serious injury.
