    Default Phelper down.

    Fucking harsh, I truly hope he is ok. Skateboarding needs Jake Phelps.

    He'll be fine, few broken bones at most. Slam was so brutal though

    Didn't know Pehlps still got down like that skating, fair play that hill was a beast

    Yeah - just saw it on Chico Brenes' Insta - looks pretty bad.
    hugo - he's 50 +

    There's another insta of a guy hitting a stationary police car during the same hill bomb (I think) and flying through the air like a rag doll.

    Not saying the cops are in the right here but who the fuck goes down the hill when there's car parked at the bottom

    EDIT: I didn't see the shoulder nudge, that's pretty fucked

    If you took that slam at 20 you'd be feeling like a 50 year old for weeks after. Hate to think how an actual 50+ year old is gonna feel. Fair play to him. At least he backs up his skate or die attitude

    Phelps skates, he has the time on board to back up being an opinionated turd, so I genuinely hope he's ok.

    I love that the top end for skating keeps getting pushed further and further. There are about 10 or so skaters I know of locally in Melbourne in their mid/late 50s skating multiple times a week.

    The slam itself really didn't look too bad to me but clearly the result speaks for itself.

    always the lesser looking slams that end up being the absolute worst init. grim

    shoulder shove on that kid is fucking grotesque. ACAB

    Looked pretty rough to me, I've bombed that hill many times it's real fast, video makes it look mellower. He bonked his melon multiple times there

    Hopefully that's a good sign?!
