12 Of The Most Extreme Action Sports Slams In The History Of The World

Sponsored feature: These were absolutely brutal.

In partnership with the new video game WWE 2K16, we’ve decided it was about time we compiled the definitive action sports slam list.

We’re not talking about that time Rodney Mullen stubbed his toe on the fridge, or that morning Shaun White got a paper cut opening up his phone bill, here. No, these are the real deal; the slams that are so brutal they made the earth shake for days afterwards.

If you’ve just had some food, you should know that some of these slams are pretty sick (and we don’t mean that in the good way). Skateboard slams, MTB slams, BMX slams, ski slams, snowboard slams …whatever type of slam you’re looking for…we’ve got you covered. These are absolutely insane.

1) Skateboard Slam – Carlsbad Gap

“FORK! … HOLY SHIP!” Yep. That pretty much sums it up.


2) Snowboarder Backflips Into Skiers

Skiers are everywhere. They’re under your desk, in your wardrobe, and, for some inexplicable reason, loitering at the bottom of huge kickers.

3) Bunny Hop BMX Fail

Bunny hopping over your mate is always a risky business (usually for your mate). This BMX slam flips expectations on their head…literally.


4) Broken Skateboard…Straight To The Face

He might look like the lovechild of Dennis the Menace and Harry Styles, but this guy is also responsible for one of the most ridiculous skateboard slams in history. This is Charlie Chaplin duetting with action sports, the ultimate definition of slapstick silliness.

5) The Longest Ragdoll In History

In the words of Limp Bizkit, “keep rollin’ rollin’ rollin’ rollin’ (come on). Keep rollin’, rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ (yeah). Keep rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ etc.”


6) Kelly McGarry – Rampage 2014!

Anyone who knows anything about mountain biking knows that Red Bull Rampage is one of the craziest events on the action sports circuit. Here’s proof.

7) Snowboarder vs. Photographers

If you thought snowboarders and photographers were friends because of their mutually beneficial relationship…think again.


8) Huge Half Cab To Face Plant

Nice try, lad. Nice try. I mean, you’re about a million miles away from landing this but…even so…good try (here, have a sticker).

9) Teddy Berr’s Naked Front Flip

Question: What’s worse than slamming off a massive kicker? Answer: Slamming off a massive kicker while completely naked.


10) This Infamous Scooter Face Plant

This is one of the most infamous slams in history. It involves a young lad on a scooter, a broken eye socket and some pretty serious concussion.

11) Ski Rail Slide To Rib Slam Fail

If you’re looking forward to your ski trip and thinking this might be the season you finally nail a rail, let this video be a warning to you.


12) The Ultimate Nutshot

That sound. Oh god! That sound. Once you’ve heard this young skater cry out in pain after his brutal nutshot slam, you’ll never not hear him.
