Offbeat Video

This is the painful moment a skateboarder attempts a trick between two wooden blocks before landing rib first on one.

As Syarif Alqadrie, veteran boarder of 12 years tried to perform an ollie in West Kalimantan, Indonesia, on June 18, he set up two wooden platforms to jump off.

Unfortunately, one of his back wheels doesn’t land on the platform, causing the 29-year-old to fall to the ground straight on to his side.

Syarif said: “I couldn’t stop laughing but I think it was to cover up some pain.

“I managed to bruise my elbow a bit.

“I am always trying to learn something new from skateboarding that’s why I film my tricks.

“It is important to me to know what else I can do with my board.”
