Reno, NV: Longboarder legend Adam Colton nearly died. While enjoying one of his favorite hobbies, Speed-Riding, his wing collapsed and he fell 400 feet. Colton will be ok, but he is in the hospital recovering. He’ll be back to skate and fly another day.

In a Colton-like response, he had this to say, “Brocken monster. Broken neck, fractured lower back. Crack right jaw, chipped teeth, bruised lung, cut kidney, sure lucky to be alive, very close to being paralyzed… Will make a full recovery and fly and smile another day. Full report down the line. My spine protector saved life.”

We hope for a speedy recovery for Adam.
