A successful skateboarder shared some of his most extreme and painful downhill fails.

Even experienced boarders have some extremely painful looking bails and fails from time to time and Josh Neuman,19, from North Carolina, is no different.

The production company owner got into skateboarding at the age of 12 out of boredom and a lack of video games, and though he has found success, that doesn’t change the fact he’s eaten pavement once or twice as well.

Hitting top speeds of 65 mph Josh violently slipped and slid off his boards as he slammed into the hard, unforgiving ground while skating down steep roads.

Josh said: “Falling definitely is not fun, but it’s part of the game.

“Getting to the end of a run feels awesome because you get to rest for a few minutes on the way back to the top.”
