No one likes to slam. We all know that feeling of coccyx-numbing, will-I-ever-be-able-to-peel-myself-off-the-ground pain when you catch an edge or overshoot a kicker. Like sitting down too hard on a seatbelt plug or giving birth. OK, not quite like giving birth, but you catch my drift.
So when a slam video pops up online, why do we have this strange compulsion to watch it? We know what’s going to happen, but you can’t help but peek through your fingers in horror. Car crash TV at its very finest.
We’ve compiled the very worst snowboard slams in history, in honour of all those brave men and women who ride hard and bail even harder. We feel your pain dudes.
