What Doesn't Kill Us by LookOutBelow

Ok, the story behind this little tribute: James Poole and I, the day after the Soundwave concert in Brisbane, were skating around the suburbs. We got to the top of this huge hill and I got off to walk (I didn’t feel like killing myself again after a skateboarding accident a while back) and James kept rolling a little further. I assumed he was going to get off, but without warning, he bombed the whole thing!
He managed to make it to the bottom (With INSANE speed wobbles) then… you know the rest.
I ran down to the bottom off the hill, and made sure he didn’t get straight back up. His first words to me were: “Well… you know what they say, ‘What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger!”.

(James, I’m sorry about the water I threw over the wounds too)

    Too funny! I used to have those stacks way back in the mid 1970’s to early 1980’s – not anymore because I don’t care about downhill carving/skating. And one of the funniest slams I ever saw was my mates older brother skating down a short hill that you could easily hit 60 km/hour on, getting really severe death-wobbles and then turning towards the gutter, crashing into it and flying across the grass and slamming on the footpath! I laughed so hard, but he really needed and Undertaker to make a “Street-Visit”! LOL

    A great story, excellent (savage) portrait and a really cool graphic underlay/background!

  • HA HA HA! This one was a lot like this, but he didn’t go off the side of the road – he landed right in the middle!

    Thanks heaps mate!

    A car going over the top could have enhanced the Drama Factor in bucket-loads. Let him know of your wishes if he decides to give an Encore performance! :-)

  • HA HA HA! Your right there!
